Eco-terrorism isn't new. It is, however, typically ineffective. This report points to another potential scenario.

It's a disease spreading among our young and hitting people of all ages. The loss of the ability to get motivated, which is driving many into depression and even suicide, is the tip of the iceberg. It is a problem we must deal with. Who is to blame? Society and governments have a lot to answer for and so do parents and teachers. Can we reverse the trend?

This is for a special song singer who was marching on the East Side Wednesday. You were riding a bike and singing revolutionary songs. I was marching around dressed in all-black.
