I recently submitted an entry to Awakening Starseeds II, a compendium of awakening experiences. I had written another similar piece in the first Awakening Starseeds…
We’re in the midst
Bolton and other warmongers and war profiteers would war on Iran. What would that do to all the people living there? Just what it has done wherever our war machine goes – just ask the Vietnamese, Iraqis, Afghanistans, etc. What misery and mayhem does our government create in our name?
After we finish a war with other peoples we often then form families, friendships, and businesses with them. Why not do that first and instead of wasting our money and reputation by wasting their bodies? Let’s relate to Iranians as people first and instead of dehumanizing and warring on them.
That’s why I mounted a Bong Iran! campaign, challenging them to a ganja (pot) contest. I say our new ganja farmers in southern Oregon and northern California can make pot that’s better than even their ancient strains. I imagine a smoke-off that brings together a few from each culture taking part in a friendly contest more designed to create human relations than win some top pot prize.
OK, so far there are only 3 signed on. (Which is near to the slightly growing number of people reading this website) But what if it caught on (in-part because you forwarded this to others and helped get an exponential sign-on)? Wouldn’t it be great fun to put fun where there is only media scorn and mounting tension, to bypass whatever rulers from either side think of it, to make human, humane, and humorous connections?
Click here for the Bong Iran bumper stickers. Unfortunately, the website “Zazzle” has an automatic “mature content” filter, and without signing up to a zazzle accountm, you won’t be able to even SEE the bumper stickers. We are working on an alternative way to print these stickers.
