The Curse of Normality

The Curse of Normality

Ignorance is Strength!
Freedom is Slavery!
War is Peace!

Let me be, Mr. G-Man,
I am not no terrorist,
I did nothing,
I told a few bad jokes,
Posted them to Facebook,
To Twitter, and offered to be a Martyr,
In front of the Muslim Ban Protest,
At the Airport, you see I am not ignorant,
You see, my love was coming back from being with refugees,
You see, I am a lover of all, I see the future in ways you don’t,

Freedom I know is Slavery, bring me the hand cuffs,
I want to cuff myself like I was in restrains in Stanford,
To protect my neck and wrists from my own wishes to slash them,
Freedom is Slavery, to you maybe but to me Freedom is Life,
Go away G-Men, fuck off,

War is Peace, we are headed off a cliff,
Bill Gates warns of climate change induced mass pandemic,
We are not prepared, I told you that and you dragged me to Grady,
I told you that two weeks ago!

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.
