Hold Angry People With Love

The expressions of injustice are real, the opportunity to respond to a man on fire is either put water on him and store the fuel for another attack or let it burn out completely.  The later choice is the one my closest are now doing.  See, Berkeley is a vital garden of minds, fruitful and rich.  Yet, it needs to somehow restore a trace of its old ways.  The millennial are a lost generation, student loan debt albatrosses around their necks.  Nooses of debt pacify them to hiding.  Until, it breaks.  Until, they find their immortal soul.  Their true selves.  Some are painters, tricked to be marketers.  Some are poets, tricked to be chemists.  Some are visionaries, stripped of confidence by public school high school teachers that don’t have vision.  Artists climb rocks to create in their minds’ painting of what should be.  Here, The Missouri Review is read like the rest of America watches Fox News.  They should do both.

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
