Justice

If we build a community, that serves the interests of its members, we can create social justice. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2022

Mysteries

We can’t fathom the mystery of life and death but we obsess over and obliterate people who we think are inferior to us, including animals and plants which are important to the eco system. We have to transition from the idea of predator and prey to one of collective management of the resources in this […]

Mastery
