"How would you take over the world?" *

Maya from Post Cards from Sacramento has posted a cartoon based on this web site depicting a cute fluffy white rabbit. The title of the cartoon says,"I'd take over the world by giving everyone fuzzy bunnies."

Here's my spontaneous response;

I would take over the world with poetry and art. I'd take over the world with the help of street people, working class, adventurous aristocrats and technocrats, disgruntled soldiers, sailors, flyboys and fly girls, marines, and liberal journalists. I'd take over the world with Quakers, Amish, Mennonites, Buddhists, Sufis, and Catholic Workers.
We'd open up the revolution
to the disenfranchised
and penniless optimists...

We'd do it one day at a time.

We'd organize communes and kibbutzim.
We'd have cool web sites,
organic gardens,
solar powered houses,
hybrid cars or no cars at all,
home schooling,
reformed public schools,

We'd spontaneously create
disruptions in church services
like George Fox used to do,
we'd risk our lives and property
to speak and share the truth.
We'd sacrifice our careers
on the altar of the peoples' revolution.
