The Passing Of Old Women Who've Led Admirable Lives.

We live in a large retirement community here in Orange County California. Once strong, healthy, remarkable old women die in our village quite regularly, no fanfare, just attended to by such family and friends as the have left.

So, the “Queen’s” death? May she Rest In Peace. I offer up the same respect I do to the ending of my neighbors journey’s on destiny’s road. No more no less.

That said, the pomp, the wasteful opulence, the remaining silliness of monarchy and its ongoing schmooze with Oligarchs is at least an embarrassment. This ceremonial celebration of stacking one group of humans over, and obviously above, all others is the very root system of the hundreds of forms of racial, social, and caste structures flourishing today.

Power to the people, peace to all. Happy Labor Day.

The people on top lose their power.—Howard Zinn

When the soldiers put down their arms
The war mongers lose their power.

Union Strong, People Power. HAPPY LABOR DAY EVERYONE
