To start the year off right, I started my poppy garden this week. They are scarlet and should be beautiful. I learned the hard way poppy does not do well when started in July in Phoenix.
Non-violent, non-cooperation is probably the best tool available for bringing about meaningful social change. The politicians need our cooperation to continue waging their war on plants and their general war on the entire population. One place they need our cooperation is with juries. If you’re being attacked by politicians for having certain plants, then you can make it very difficult, if not impossible for the lawyers with robes to seat a jury.
If you get picked to be on a jury, you can and should refuse to convict. If anyone should be convicted, it’s the the lawyers and cops carrying out the attacks.
