many more are slaves to the very system they are supposedly trying to overcome/destroy. I find that generally speaking, so-called revolutionaries are still far too caught up in the material trappings of capitalism/consumerism to figure out how valuable something like Gandhi's philosophy/strategy of non-cooperation can be to breaking free of their oppression.

My point has always been to try and realize decolonization on ALL levels: material, spiritual, ethical, emotional, educational. We need to check ourselves and understand where our very convictions come from and look within them for the same patterns of oppositional consciousness that we're fighting. But I'm getting off the point.

You don't know how glad I was when Arrested Development dropped "Children Play w/ Earth." I always wondered how much they meant it.
