Arising early in the morning and walking out to hear the sounds of sacred earth…
The birds above and all around, the earth below…
Wherever you are, even in the depths of the city, there is a hum of Nature…
And, as Arundhati Roy herself says…
“Another world is not only possible, she is on her way.
On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”
“Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it.
To deprive it of oxygen.
To shame it.
To mock it.
With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness –
and our ability to tell our own stories.
Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe.
The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling –
their version of history,
their notion of inevitability.
Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them.
Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”
― Arundhati Roy, War Talk
