Critical Dharma for Thinking Minds

Virtuous Acts of Rebellion

Albert Camus once said that “The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.” In a similar spirit, nasty bastard Nietzsche erupted “without music, life would be a mistake!” In this fine gent, so calm, so optimistic, so focussed I see a life full of all that is right and true and good with us. “Make no mistake” says Margaret Mead, “that a small group of committed individuals can’t change the world — indeed, they are the only thing that ever has.” Be your own supremely virtuous act of rebellion for the betterment of us and sing it, brothers and sisters. Sing it loud!
