Welcome to the Zone of Non-being!
My name is Darryl. I am a poet, bookworm, social critic, and Central Committee member of Rhode Island Socialists. This blog will feature my poetry, satire, and political commentary from the far, far Left.
This blog has been maintained for over a year now, and I am happy to state that The Zone of Non-being was nominated for the Serenity Blog Award! This Award is “awarded to the authors of blogs whose goal is to spread peace and unity through love and respect, while shining light on important topics”.
Writing about peace is important to me for at least two reasons:
- Changing our wretched material conditions requires awareness. We cannot act upon a problem if we do not know that it exists. Harriet Tubman said “I have freed thousands of slaves. I could have freed thousands more if they only knew they were slaves”. Raising consciousness is a precondition for concrete action.
- People need to know that an another world is possible. Through writing, I challenge dominant narratives and encourage people to imagine better. Believing we deserve better is the first step to demanding better.
The Zone of Non-being is a space for everyone to engage in constructive dialogue about social issues. I would love to hear your thoughts in the Comments Section!
Follow the blog to stay tuned!
