“God weeps because the failure to condemn Israeli war crimes by our political establishment and our compliant media betrays the memory of those killed in other genocides, from the Holocaust to Cambodia to Rwanda to Bosnia. God weeps because we have failed to learn the fundamental lesson of the Holocaust, which is not that Jews are unique or eternal victims, but that when you have the capacity to stop genocide, and you do not, you are culpable. And we [Americans], who provide 95 percent of Israel’s weapons, are very culpable.” Chris Hedges (via azspot)

I think constantly about connection and loneliness and community and belonging, and a great deal, perhaps too much, of how my writing evidences me working through the intersections of these things. So many of us are reaching out, hoping someone out there will grab our hands and remind us we are not as alone as we fear.

Happy Birthday, James A. Baldwin, born 2 August 1924, died 1 December 1987
10 Quotes
You write in order to change the world … if you alter, even by a millimetre, the way people look at reality, then you can change it.
Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up.
You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
The most dangerous creation of any society is the man who has nothing to lose.
It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.
People pay for what they do, and still more for what they have allowed themselves to become. And they pay for it very simply; by the lives they lead.
I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.
I can’t believe what you say, because I see what you do.
Life is tragic simply because the earth turns and the sun inexorably rises and sets, and one day, for each of us, the sun will go down for the last, last time.
Baldwin was an American novelist, essayist, playwright, poet, and social critic. He is well known for his essays, collected in Notes of a Native Son, and his first novel, Go Tell It on the Mountain.

“For those who like their art pure of social issues, I must say-F*** ***! buddy, theatre IS a social entity. It can dull the minds of the citizens, it can wipe out guilt, it can teach all to accept the Great Society and the Amaaaaarican way of life (just like the movies, Ma) or it can look to changing that society… and that’s political.” R.G. Davis, Guerrilla Theater, The Tulane Drama Review, Vol. 10, No. 4 (Summer, 1966), pp. 130-136 (via mikerugnetta)
