Anti Wage-Slavery Pro-Freedom Quotations Of The Week 1082-1084

Neither China nor India shows much interest for now in new organizing principles for the world.

Perhaps, those principles are now defined by technology, social networks and individual empowerment, forces that lie outside conventional notions of geostrategic power.

In 2012, 49 million people in America were food insecure, meaning they don't know where their next meal is coming from.
Arianna Huffington

Say not the struggle naught availeth

Say not the struggle naught availeth,
The labour and the wounds are vain,
The enemy faints not, nor faileth,
And as things have been they remain.

If hopes were dupes, fears may be liars;
It may be, in yon smoke conceal'd,
Your comrades chase e'en now the fliers,
And, but for you, possess the field.

For while the tired waves, vainly breaking,
Seem here no painful inch to gain,
Far back, through creeks and inlets making,
Comes silent, flooding in, the main.

And not by eastern windows only,
When daylight comes, comes in the light;
In front the sun climbs slow, how slowly!

But westward, look, the land is bright!
Arthur Hugh Clough
