Moral decay, political corruption and fascism are everywhere. But activists have been busy. For decades we have tried every tactic to avert catastrophe. We voted, wrote letters, gave money, held signs, protested in marches, clicked links, signed petitions, tweeted websites, wrote books, taught classes, turned off the television, programmed apps, engaged in direct action, committed petty vandalism. All for naught. Popular revolution remains the only viable tactic left.

Perhaps what this photo represents is the source of my upset
~ mankind at its worst. Such callous disregard for life. I curse them.

of the 22 elephant slaughtered in a helicopter-borne attack lie on the ground

A record number of big
ivory seizures were made globally in 2011 and the trend looks set to continue
in 2012 as elephant massacres take place from Congo to Cameroon, where as many
as 200 of the pachyderms, listed by the International Union for Conservation of
Nature as "vulnerable", were slain in January." REUTERS/DRC
