Ferguson matters because we are finally witnessing the social injustice of our current War on Drugs and growing militarized police state ~ here are the facts:
I distinctly remember as a very young child, since I'm a twin and surrendered during my birth trauma, a vague, scary and almost overwhelming prenatal feeling of being part of something so vast and incomprehensible that I felt absolutely miniscule and tiny beyond description.
All of Eisenhower's warnings in his 1961 Presidential address have come true but now we are dealing with a Military-Industrial-Congressional complex of immense size and added danger to our Republic ~ which should become obvious to all in the upcoming mid-term elections.
Social inequality rules in America and the 2014 midterm election has been reduced to Kabuki theater as millionaire Republicans and Democrats rearrange the chairs on the deck of the sinking Republic while the main stream press tries to convince us that it all really matters.

Here's an example
In other words, ISIS is the noxious by-product of a fear driven U.S. foreign policy gone terribly wrong if not out of control ~ whereas the backdraft of America's war of terror becomes a fearsome Frankenstein (ISIS) which we ourselves have created.
For myself, this Climate Change march is especially important for our children and grandchildren ~ for our inaction regarding global warming and climate change is putting their health and existence at greater and greater risk.
Patriotism is our last refuge as it is for all scoundrels ~ so wave the flag on 9/11 and praise our human sacrifice on that day and also pray that no one looks to deeply into that black hole of American history.....
Power corrupts, absolute atomic power absolutely morally corrupts, particularly when it is in the hands of the Military/Industrial complex with the power to control and destroy the world ~ whereas human life eventually becomes collateral damage as it did with the Atomic testing during the sixties in Nevada.
Being a twin is an exhilarating experience for I have been twice blessed ~ One for having a traveling companion on my 9 month journey to this planet, especially since we were not wanted ~ and secondly for spending much of my early childhood playing with my inseparable friend and companion while sharing so many delights together.
