To the Tucson Folk Festival | A Note

Folk festival

I have to apologize to those who expected to find me at the Folk Festival in Tucson. I was told by a lady displaying a very sweet smile that I was competing with the paying vendors and she couldn’t allow me there anymore (I used to display my books, under some trees, by the entrance). There wasn’t a change of management she explained; it was her own idea of fairness. But what is fairness?

Everyone has a right to make a living, and to some it is impractical or impossible to pay for a booth just to sell a few items; it doesn’t make sense.  Is it fair to kick them out? We are part of a socio-economic system that keeps the ones who have above all others, but that is not fairness. To exclude the ones who can’t is not fairness is egotism. And that is precisely why we are in the sorry situation in which we are right now, with the federal reserve stealing the country and its independence, and  the betrayal of 9/11; when we lose our virtue we are easy prey for vipers. We need to change our direction.

The irony here is that that is what my books do: awake the reader. But I guess we don’t want to awake and it is better to keep books away; we rather get killed in our ignorance. If that is the case, so be it. But keep in mind that we always reap what we sow; our ignorance and egotism will yield a sour fruit, either for us or for our descendants. We are already in the Hunger Games, reaping what we have already sown: our youth is fighting for the pleasure and profit of a few sociopaths. And it will get worse. May the odds be ever in your favor.
