What Christmas Means to Me. Again
It's Christmas Day, and although I'm an atheist, and I believe that our beautiful planet is our heaven and our hell.
And that it's up to us to decide what world we want to live in. Not up to some invisible deity or some bloodthirsty Godzilla.
And although I hate the shopping and the greed. And although I know it can be a sad and lonely time for many.
I was raised in the Christian tradition, I believe in the earthly message of Jesus the revolutionary, I share the vision of those fighting for a kinder, gentler world.
So I do love this time of the year.
The lights, the food, the warm feelings, the random acts of kindness, because that is how I imagine the world I want to live in would be like all year round.
The one I know I will never live in, until the bestial Cons who infest this planet are defeated, and the humble inherit the earth...
And this cruel Harperland, where there are so many.
Where so many go to bed hungry, while its depraved leader does nothing to help them, would destroy our social safety net, but dares call himself a Christian.
And then there is the music of Christmas, and the songs I used to sing when I was a budding juvenile delinquent dressed up as an angel.
You know, the angel with a black eye, in a choir like this one...
The words never did, and still don't mean anything to me. But isn't the sound of gentle humanity GLORIOUS?
Imagine what a beautiful world we could build, if more boys were raised to be kind not killers, we were really our brother and sister's keeper. And there was really peace on earth.
Oh well. From me and my wonderful companion Sébastien, who makes me believe in his strong but quiet way that we can build that earthly paradise, if we fight for it hard enough.
And that we can definitely build a better country than this hideous Harperland.
To all my readers who support me so much, have kept me company for so many years on the long road to our Day of Liberation, and who I love so much.
Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noël, Happy Holidays everybody !!!!
