Libations of Lifeless Limbs
Inspired by Ezra Pound (1885-1972)'s quote, "The apparition of these faces in the crowd; Petals on a wet, black bough". The titled responsion is
Moving from the top down, we need an exposition that reflects Ezra's ontological pessimism in whatever way suits your pursuit. His ghostly perspective scans the crowd, like cries on deaf ears, the inspiration that blossoms is from a darkened dead root. The responsion title is a libation of ritualistic sacrifice in a wilderness of alliteration. Lost? Use the outpouring of emotion response to explore the darkened depth of poetic thought, Pound for pound the weightiness of your writing will define your mind, energize your thought and move you. Or not.
Inspired by Elie Wiesel (1928-2016)'s quote, "Peace is our gift to each other". The titled responsion is...
This vertical embrace signifies the intentionality of preserving our forests for the sake of future generations. War over resources may be the inevitable path of history and yet I live in the present and project a future where peace is one of many outcomes we protect.
"Harmony is our blessing to one another," says the celebrated tune of Bruce Springsteen. I can't resist the urge to consider this I contemplate about our country's present status of harmony and war. Lately, numerous contentions that once appeared to be difficult to have been won by our country.
We realize that we are not winning wars any longer. At the point when we were battling in Vietnam, our foes trusted it was difficult to vanquish our foe. At the point when we lost the Cold War, their reality see was very surprising. However, with a bit of understanding and a little exertion, we could overcome them.
Our country isn't battling the Cold War today or even the war of things to come. We are in no sort of war. We have a mission to win each war that we get into. Why at that point do we lose our fights? The explanation is straightforward; we do not have an unmistakable vision.
On the off chance that we had an away from of what we were battling for, at that point the odds of triumph would be high. We additionally would have a thought of the sort of strategies we would use to win. The distinction among today and the past is that we have an incredible pioneer. It is he that has given us an away from of what it is we are battling for. It is time we started to tail him in our endeavors to shield our country from our adversaries.
Our pioneers comprehend that it is our pioneers that will represent the moment of truth the mission of our country. In this way, they offer us a little guidance. They mention to us what is correct and what's going on. In the event that we accomplish something right, at that point, our pioneers will believe us to be a decent trooper.
In the event that we accomplish something incorrectly, at that point our pioneers won't think of us as a decent trooper. The purpose behind this is basic; if our pioneers see that we are not being straightforward with them and the American individuals then they won't feel like they have our wellbeing at the top of the priority list. Our foes need to realize that we are battling for harmony, not war.
Presently at that point, it is our obligation to show the adversary that we are not battling for war. So as to do this, we should begin our own wars and afterward tell the adversary that we won't battle them. or on the other hand on the off chance that we are assaulted, at that point we won't retaliate. we will retaliate with similar strategies as we do now when we are at war.
Harmony is our blessing to one another and it is time we show it. to our adversary.
If it's not too much trouble think about this. Think about the entirety of your alternatives and think on this.
Consider in the event that you will that it was quite recently that the United States of America would not like to be in a war. But then in only two brief weeks we went into a significant war with the Iraqi system.
Is that war a decent one or an awful one? For what reason did our pioneers go into war? For what reason would we say we are not in the World Trade place or in New York City with the Taliban to stop the war?
Do we truly have a decision to pick one over the other, or ensure that we have any kind of effect between the two? We are not an extremely shrewd country right? Think on this. I trust you will think about this.
It seems like the United States is the greatest domineering jerk on earth and we can't escape the war. The war in Iraq is only a side effect of something a lot greater going on in our country. The time has come to investigate ourselves. Is that not what harmony is about?
At the point when the war closes we have to get out and push ahead, which implies we have to get the most ideal arrangement, with our foe. I accept we can do that.
If it's not too much trouble think about this. I realize it is a great deal of data yet please think on this. Think about this.
Inspired by E. O. Wilson (Biologist)'s quote, "Political ideology can corrupt the mind, and science". The titled responsion is...
The Green movement appears to be bipartisan, breaking into the main political conversation. The crisis is existential. The need for action is immediate. Corruption is the contagion with the antidote being Ethologistic in Nature.
Like numerous social and political movements, the green movement has been fortified and strengthened by the forces that contest it.
Today, the green movement is again outlined and galvanized by its command of issues such as global warming and climate change, Keystone pipeline, nuclear proliferation, wetlands preservation, the hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” fisheries depletion, species extinction, and other severe environmental concerns.
What differentiates the green movement today from the earlier conservation movement is its stress on research and science. Communicating in spiritual tones and using religious metaphors, early ecologists like Muir and Thoreau admired nature for its tremendous impact on man’s emotions and our souls.
Now, though, we are far more prone to call upon scientific data and empirical research to bolster arguments in favor of wilderness preservation or versus polluting industries. Policymakers cite the work of polar researchers and use computerized climate models to combat global warming, and medical investigators rely on public health statistics to contend against mercury pollution. Whether these arguments thrive or collapse, however, is contingent on the idea, the desire, and the commitment the people who make up the green movement demonstrate.
The Green Movement has been the most noteworthy challenge the Islamic Republic of Iran has encountered ever since the 1979 Revolution. Despite an initial flourishing, the Green Movement gradually declined and was unable to achieve its goals, albeit only those that were not in line with reality. The movement eventually tied itself within the framework of the existing order.
To comprehend and appreciate the movement, one needs to closely consider the factors that affected the regression and subsequent evolution of the movement. Social movement failure remains a seriously understudied topic, and the literature on movement emergence is much more refined than the literature on movement decline. The same holds true about the Green Movement of Iran. The social movement theory can be employed to assess the role of political opportunities, mobilizing structures, framing, and repertoires of collective action in the “failure” and subsequent evolution of the movement.
In short, the loss of political opportunity played a decisive role in the decline of the movement and severely impacted the movement’s mobilizing structures while indirectly upsetting its framing and repertoire of collective action. The unfitting and abstruse framing of the movement by its leaders, along with a lack of strategy to tackle the prevailing challenges, the general haphazardness, and the incapability to adopt effectual collective actions destabilized the movement and led to its initial decline.
But it is evident that if we consider Iran’s pro-democracy “green movement” not as a revolution but as a civil rights movement –as the leaders of the movement did – then a “win” must, in fact, be measured over time. If a win means that many Iranians are no longer resigned to the undemocratic aspects of a political system that had regressed, rather than progressed, in the last three decades before the revolution, then it holds true. The movement was successful in affording its citizens the rights promised to them under Iran’s own Constitution.
