How Can I Convince You?

That YOU dear reader are the solution to the problems America faces? It so simple, and it's true. YOU are the solution when you stop being afraid and join with your fellow citizens and tell our "leaders" they MUST END their immoral, unethical, and criminal behavior.

Oil Fields Are More Important Harvey Lloyd 2006

YOU can demand to know, from your Senators, and House Representative, and news outlets, why no one cares to find, and prosecute Osama Bin Laden. Why isn't our government using its vast resources, and the military it constantly brags about, to capture our greatest enemy, this so-called "evil-doer"? Why isn't bin Laden "Wanted Dead or Alive" any more?

And YOU can demand that U.S. soldiers never be sent to war for a lie, and that if sent into battle they always get proper equipment. You can demand our soldiers never be used as guinea pigs for petro or bio chemical experiments. YOU can insist that wounded soldiers return home to the best medical and mental-health treatment we have and that their families be cared for as well. YOU can raise a cry against nuclear arms escalation that would be heard all the way to North Korea!

Radioactive Waste Harvey Lloyd 2006

And YOU can stop the bombing, killing, bleeding, torturing and horror our government is "contracting" upon other citizens outside our borders. YOU can take back the country that countless ordinary people, just like yourself and your neighbors, fought to make free and just.

I Am Becoming Death Harvey Lloyd 2006


We are here to learn, here on this earth willy nilly, as in Shakespeare's words from King Lear: "We must endure our coming hither as our going hence. Ripeness is all." At no age is the human mind limited. It is only when, shackled by the bonds of daily routine, mind-set and fear, the mind lies fallow, filled with detritus of boring work.

- From "The Art of Seeing Look Without Fear" by guest artist Harvey Lloyd.
