The 'Peace Movement' still alive and well. Maybe it's you that's missing?
Love this place. Truth reigns. For the most part, anyway. But still seeing here and there 'the peace movement has been missing for the last 8 years', 'where is the peace movement ?, but you know, sorry, but hey, fck you. Where are you? The peace movement has continued on from the 60's. Sorry if you left it. Sorry if you never joined. Sorry if you are ignorant of it's workings.
What have you done for me lately? What have YOU done as part of the 'Peace Movement' ? There was a large component of the amorphous Occupy Wall Street that were there for the Peace. You? Where were you? On the sidelines, producing copy how Occupy would never work did not work was worthless?
Where were you in response to the continued US endless war?
Just read an otherwise informative essay here that decried the 'Peace Movement' being dead during Obama 8 years. The only thing dead was YOUR impotence of being in touch with what others were doing constantly opposing BO's continuation of the US endless war policies.
Of course there are those of us who never stopped. Continued peace vigils. Supported peace causes. You know, did sh't. Buy yeah, go ahead and decry the lack of a 'peace movement'. Point your bloody fingor.
Just know that you when you type those words you feed into the opposition when you do that.
Most every year since the 60's, people have been arrested opposing nuclear bombs, military recruiting and more. What about you? What have you done? Yuh. What?
How about rejoining the 'peace movement'? What about making it bigger and better? Yeah, you. Right, right, you are 'just one person.' What difference can you make?

But, please, please, don't say that the peace movement is dead. Your involvement or support for it is dead maybe. But no, brave folks everywhere are carrying on the work. You?

Sorry for this interruption of your day if you are one of those who think the 'peace movement' is dead.
Have a glorious day. Seriously.
