It is safe to say that almost everybody loves the land, the water, the green life that becomes food and some aspects of the familiar culture, and almost no one loves the rules in society set up by groups who were more assertive and more successful at stealing things meant for all, in short, what the government does and what transnational corporations, the new government, do.
From this insight, love of country can be redefined as the love of the living relationships we know and that sustain us… Setting boundaries to the conditions that injure those relationships, that pollute the earth and thereby our bodies are an extension of that love. Love stops harm and self-harm.
Happy Day of Love.
