Thoughts and Perspectives

What are you going to do?

What are you going to do?

What are you going to do when ICE comes to your door, demands your papers, and searches your house?

What are you going to do when you have some extra time: read, write, protest, or watch what is generally mindless television? 

What are you going to do when Trump’s latest illegal orders include rounding up your favorite cooks, maids, medical doctors, professors, and teachers? 

What are you going to do when humans are unemployable – when Chick-fil-A, Red Lobster, and Starbucks, for example, employee almost only robots? 

What are you going to do when humans have denied global warming until you cannot go outside with a space suit? 

What are you going to do when your neighbor votes against your basic rights to live and be free?

What are you going to do with your friend dies because he or she does not have health insurance or relies only on prayer? 

What are you going to do when you need the help of a Muslim?

What are you going to during the next election: throw out people like Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, and Mitch McConnell or allow them to continue hurting you?  

What are you going to do when the overall quality of K-12 education gets to where even more people graduate high school without having basic skills? 

What are you going to do when more and more churches close (hundreds close every month already) because more and more of the population around the world follows direct action and evidence? 

What are you going to do when maybe the United States collapses because people are selfish and stubborn?

What are you going to do when it comes time for tangible, direct action?

What are you going to do when the most talented people-artists, scientists, writers, and others-leave the United States? 

What are you going to do?  

What are you really going to do?
