http://threesimplequestions.blogspot.com/2016/06/the-invisibles_57.html

EROS, THE FORCE OF LIFE, IS AN INVISIBLE. SO IS THANATOS, THE DEATH IMPULSE.

Lt. Col. Dave Grossman built his  career on attempting to help soldiers, and citizens, to heal after mass shootings or war, and attempt to resume a “normal” life. And, a “normal” life is a life devoted to “Eros” – to life. Life devoted to life and…

Activating Action

A few days ago I woke up thinking about the word activist. What are they activating? Conscience, sympathy, compassion? Or how about outrage, anger, disgust? Activating action?
