And the point is?

This idea of competition between groups and individuals within these groups is abhorrent to them. They are quirky, funny, odd, and often geniuses in disguise. Historians with photographic memories and the ability to synthesize that history, group the actors and weave a story that will have a bar room crowded a round a tiny table listening with rapt attention at the end of an evening, every once in a while exclaiming,"It doesn't get better than this - I'm not kidding you!" Musicians who stop playing and walk away when you ask them why they are not internationally known - you learn to cherish when they play for you - wise enough to know you are listening to beauty: the drawing of chord change, a note, the warm worn tone that can only be grown alone.

Yet through all of this the words of my friends, family people that I love run through my mind as you would run your fingers through the hair of someone you love, a favorite pet who rests their nose on your arm after a hard day. These are memories that warm my heart and I can hear the voices that are with the memories as if they are beside me - every moment of each day.

This is the romantic. A deep melancholy rests on my shoulder each day as I see all the things I love, grow older, get weaker, and begin that transition to nothingness. And I wonder even with all the profound joys and personal victories that one can have in life nothing prepares any of us for the escalated losses which me each must face as we grow older. It doesn't matter how much or how little money we each have as the end is always the same, for all of us. There is nothing that we can take with us. We can leave the world a better place by just trying, yet we squabble about things that are so peripheral to our very existence that one wonders why so few see the tragedy of it all. The tragedy of wanting to be right even when we know that we can't possibly have all of the answers 100% of the time.

You have the chance to change the world for ourselves, children and all those who follow. But if you continue to ignore what powerful intellectuals are positing as next steps to take, and fail to organize internationally then we all lose. If the right is at least listening to their experts don’t you think it would be wise that you do as well? I beg you not to lose this chance and waste the enormous effort, energy and sacrifice so many of you have made. But if you continually cling to dogmatic ideas that are far too radical to resonate with the masses I fear the giant machine you have dared to do battle with will crush you and continue to crush the rest of us – the other part of the 99%.

People want to know they are making a difference and not sitting in a boat with one set of people rowing one direction and another set of rowers moving in the other, which in the end, foolishly wastes an incalulatable amount of limited energy.
