“The Greed of gain has no time or limit to its capaciousness. Its one object is to produce and consume. It has pity neither for beautiful nature nor for living human beings. It is ruthlessly ready without a moment's hesitation to crush beauty and life.” ―George Eliot

"The written word became established as a criterion of the superior man—a symbol of emotional fineness. The man who could write his name on a piece of paper, whether or not he possessed the spiritual fineness to honor those words in speech, was by some miraculous formula a more highly developed and sensitized person than the one who had never had a pen in hand, but whose spoken word was inviolable and whose sense of honor and truth was paramount. With false reasoning was the quality of human character measured by man's ability to make with an implement a mark upon paper."

"Is not humanness a matter of heart and mind, and is it not evident in the form of relationship with men? Is not kindness more powerful than arrogance; and truth more powerful than the sword?"

―Ota K'Te/Mochunozhin, Oglala Lakota, [aka: Chief Luther Standing Bear,Teton Sioux], (1905-1939)

Cal thank you for posting this action. Of course I signed & posted to Twitter. I have previously signed petitions to stop the construction of the Belo Monte Dam which is an outrageous violation of human rights/genocide against the indigenous Xingu people of the Amazon rainforest. We can only hope that President Dilma Rousseff will stop the construction and realize the irreversible tragic consequences of his action to allow the construction to go ahead in the first place!
