We Will not Bow to the Machine

When I was a young boy my father taught me about the assassination of Pope John Paul II by Mehmet Ali Agca. This story is one of madness and forgiveness. In short, il papa forgives him and loves him. In that way, he lives a new life. Agca was probably schizophrenic and taken advantage of. I relate to his story, because my story is similar. I want to get away from the anger and rage. However, the only people that really at this point I look up to are hip hop artist like Lil Boosie. They speak the truth to power. They are real. So here is a film that I really like after the testimony I recorded to the University of Minnesota human resources. They ask me to sign a bunch of legal documents. I do not want to sign them without a lawyer looking at them. What privacy do I have? Nothing it seems.

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
