And if my thought-dreams could be seenThey’d probably put my head in a guillotineBut it’s alright, Ma, it’s life, and life only.
Bob Dylan (1965)
It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)
We live, simultaneously, in two different worlds. Ultimately, we live in the World of Nature, a world that we did not create and the world upon which all life depends. Most immediately, we inhabit a "human world" that we create ourselves. Because our human world is the result of our own choices and actions, we can say, quite properly, that we live, most immediately, in a “political world.” In this blog, I hope to explore the interaction of these two worlds that we call home.
