  1. Nice music, thanks.
    Unfortunately war protestors are lobbying & complaining but not ‘Becoming the change we want to see in our world’ ie creating economically-inclusive welcoming ‘community’ (Latin ‘com’ = ‘together’ + ‘munus’ = ‘gift-or-service’ right where we live & work. Protests are ‘cold’, not speaking to the heart of livelihood realities for common people & not touching the language of governments nor corporations.
    Manifesting our love, caring & sharing ‘economy’ (Greek ‘oikos’ = ‘home’ + ‘namein’ = ‘care-&-nurture’) livelihood in our own lives is the basis upon which all humanity’s worldwide ‘indigenous’ (L ‘self-generating’) ancestors based nationhood & governance. The worldwide indigenous ‘Great-good-way-of-kindness’ aka ‘Great-Law-of-Peace’ aka ‘Constitution’ is based in the RELATIONAL ECONOMY of:
    1) intimate, intergenerational, female-male, interdisciplinary, critical-mass, economies-of-scale within the ~100 (50-150) person Multihome-Dwelling-Complex (eg. Longhouse-apartment, Pueblo-townhouse & Kanata-village). 70% of people today worldwide & in N. America live in Multihomes with an average 32 dwelling-units = ~100 people. 20% of Multihome-Dwellers live intentionally in extended-family proximity for social & economic collaboration.
    2) time-based equivalency accounting upon the worldwide ‘String-shell’ Value system (eg. Wampum in N. America, Quipu in S. America, Cowrie in indigenous Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia & all islands). String-shell as a system of true ‘money’ (Greek ‘mnemosis’ = ‘memory’) integrates a) ‘Capital’ (L ‘cap’ = ‘head’ = ‘collective-intelligence’), b) ‘Currency’ (flow + ‘money’), c) Condolence (social-security), d) Collegial mentored-apprenticeship Educational Credit, e) time-math Communication, f) professional Costume.
    DO-WE-KNOW-WHO-WE-ARE-? is a Community Economy web-software for local animators to transform ‘community’ (L ‘com’ = ‘together’ + ‘munus’ = ‘gift-or-service’) right where we already live & work. Software is based in all Humanity’s worldwide indigenous heritage traditions, designed so average residents & neighbours can easily: 1) CATALOGUE our individual & business complementary talents, goods, services, resources & dreams, 2) MAP collaborative relationships, 3) ACCOUNT for transactions & contributions, 4) COMMUNICATE locally /c record keeping, agreement/contract development, bridge building & conflict resolution among family, friends & neighbours.
    Come join in creating cultural positive proactive peace by recapturing our own economies & laying the foundation for a kind & loving world everywhere, simultaneously from the bottom-up.

  2. doesn’t seem to be telling a story to anybody. ‘I have had to fight almost every night through out the centuries, that is when I say oh yes yet again can you stop the cavalry, Mary gladly waits at home in the nuclear fall out zone … Wish I was at home for Christmas’ – ‘Stop the Calvary’ old Christmas favourite for a reason builds on every other song ‘Rows of white crosses stand mute in the sand to man’s blind indifference to his fellow man to a whole generation that were butchered and damned …did they really believe that this war would end wars, well the sorrow, the suffering, the glory, the pain, the killing and dying was all done in vain for young Willie MacBride died again and again and again and again and again’ Its a common old story but its Europe’s story.

  3. ‘Green fields of France’ as quoted because over 100 yrs later it still matters whether young Willie MacBride died quick & clean or slow & obscene, still matters whether great aunts went mad with grief and were never the same. Guessing if you’re Japanese still matters whether young Willie MacBride was evaporated instantly or died slowly in agony from radiation poisoning, still matters great aunts were never the same after the nuclear bombs dropped. just as it matters to Australians that ‘in that hell they call Suvla bay, we were butchered like lambs to the slaughter … never knew there was worse things than dying … but the band played waltzing Matilda as they carried us down the gang way nobody cheered they just stood and stared then they turned all their faces away’
