a daydream

This Morning I Had the Strangest Daydream
Hal Pepinsky,,
June 22, 2011
As I write the US president is due to give a primetime speech today on “drawing down troops” in Afghanistan. I daydream that the US leader tells the US that it is time for Euro-Americans to apologize for American genocide and global for-profit corporate military/prison-industrial conquest. I daydream that the US president announces tonight that all US troops worldwide will be brought home to serve as public school teachers’ aides, to repair bridges and roads, in short as honored soldiers to serve the US with decent pay and benefits and bargain collectively here at home where they belong. I daydream that for-profit strangers’ corporate investment will wither while public investment and not-for-profit investment in local enterprise grows. I dare to daydream. Love and peace--hal
