Uses of viagra Hamid Karzai is demanding an explanation for the “assasination” of numerous Afghan civilians, uses of viagra including several little girls, uses of viagra by a rampaging US soldier who evidently just went door to door, uses of viagra shooting whoever he happened upon. Uses of viagra What could Obama possibly say? “Nothing personal, uses of viagra that’s just how we roll in the USA”? Just in the past week or so, uses of viagra we’ve seen a school shooting in Ohio, uses of viagra a college clinic shooting in Pennsylvania, uses of viagra and a courthouse shooting in Washington state. Uses of viagra (We’re also “number one” in serial killers, uses of viagra for what it’s worth.)
Uses of viagra I’m serious here: Afghan officials are (reasonably, uses of viagra in their in their minds) requesting an explanation for something that, uses of viagra for most Americans, uses of viagra requires no explanation. Uses of viagra It seems normal to us that, uses of viagra relatively regularly, uses of viagra an armed male will go on an indiscriminate shooting rampage. Uses of viagra Each of these episodes is seen as an ultimately unexplainable anomaly even as they are collectively accepted as a kind of normal (albeit horrific) periodic natural disaster.
Uses of viagra It doesn’t look that way from the outside. Uses of viagra Which provokes me to wonder: What would it take for Americans to see themselves as others do or even to look more critically at themselves, uses of viagra regardless of what others think? Short of something like losing World War II, uses of viagra what does it take for members of a violent culture to inquire deeply into the sources of the violence that seems so natural to them?
Uses of viagra Because, uses of viagra of course, uses of viagra there are all sorts of things we could do, uses of viagra individually and collectively, uses of viagra to undermine the sources of violence in our everyday lives. Uses of viagra But for those kinds of actions to add up to substantial cultural change, uses of viagra they’ve got to be undertaken by a sufficient number of the people who co-create the culture through their collective choices every day. Uses of viagra And for that to happen, uses of viagra maybe, uses of viagra there needs to be an awareness of both the bad news that something’s gone wrong and the good news that the way things are right now isn’t how they always have to be. Uses of viagra Both require the knowledge that what happens to be normal here and now isn’t the only possibility.
Uses of viagra How might artists and activists make that manifest? Any ideas?
