"When I go around in America and I see the bulk of the White People, they do not feel oppressed--they feel powerless...We [Indians] see the physical genocide that they are attempting to inflict upon us, and we understand the psychological genocide that they have already inflicted upon their own people"--John Trudell

"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man."--George Bernard Shaw

Imagine  living  in  a  world
where people 
      began to realize 
                   the VALUE 
                 of deep, on-going efforts 
to get along 
and understand each other 
          BEYOND perpetual war (at home and abroad).

Imagine a kind of society which encourages and rewards people for their *ability* to openly dissent AS WELL AS empathize with others! All towards an inclusive idea of
*mutually beneficial outcomes*.

If you can still allow yourself to imagine such a world, or something like this, then you may have the kind of excellent *indomitable* spirit that i'm seeking to enhance and promote and put into motion, via a way of doing things that i call the *Crucial Arts*.

The Crucial Arts is a way of doing things deeply rather than superficially, or in the case of social issues, seeking root or heart change rather than mere reform. The Crucial Arts is a vision for being, thinking, and doing in ways that not only utilize known ways as tools, but as well yet not-known ways. The bottom line being a *need* for the unique arting input of a multiversity of creativity, especially yours! Your arting style of desiring to not merely survive but also THRIVE--in order to make visions and community that perpetually include (rather than exclude or dominate) towards meaningful depth, or going *to the heart* of matters.

The pages herein are meant to stir up your independent-minded creativity and visionary desire with in-the-heart visions, art, spoken word, ideas, and analysis which you won't usually find easily. See our links section, especially, for both internal and external resources of arming your desires.
