Against Extremist Right-Wing Ideology

Drewby Drew McNaughton14 Aug 2015

I abhor the concept that there is
A “pure” race which is meant
To have dominion over others.
This stems from what Vandana Shiva
Calls a “Monoculture of the Mind”.

No river runs in one course
From Source to Sea
But is fed by numerous tributaries,
Each worthy of tribute
For their contribution
To what makes us who we are.

Just as a healthy forest is one
In which there is a great diversity
Of species of plants and animals,
So a thriving and vibrant society
Consists of a diversity of people
Of many cultures, races and beliefs.
