Hint: Patterns – Legacies – Self

We are both governed and we govern.  We govern ourselves, to some extent. We are also governed, in some extent. When we don’t know histories, and the history of our own ancestries and legacies, we are ignorant, then of certain patterns and therefore reasons and connections. We are connected.


This is a very short piece in response to the Aurora, Colorado rampage shootings that occurred in the US on July 20, 2012. There are micro-violences that are perpetrated every day, every moment.  These micro-violences accumulate.

You cannot have social change or social justice, without changing the self in some way or a series of ways. You cannot change yourself very far, without changing society in some way or a series of ways.
