1A. “In order to have a different future, you must create a different past.” Why? Because the status-quo educational hierarchy enforces a limited, highly “curated” so-called “history” which severely limits the potential of the most under-used organ in the human body: the IMAGINATION. Make no mistake: the supreme priority in our so-called “education” is: MAINTAIN THE STATUS QUO. Which is: the 1% control the 99%.

A Must See! 1710 Mission St/Duboce Ave. [Note: this was one amazing performance to satisfy the soul, especially the “Whistleblower” pro-Snowden anti-surveillance song, the prison-ballad song, and the final free-jazz improv, which took us all somewhere we’d never been before… Tonight we heard Mike Watt doing a bass solo?!?
