Everywhere we look fellow humans are languishing in poverty, tormented by endless war, and fully exploited. The answer to structural oppression and violence cannot ever be met by further violence. The solution to our situation is not control of production, but instead of development.

I have been doing some planning and implementation to this end. I am studying systems for the delivery of educational, medical, and a variety of essential infrastructure services to secure full human rights and basic needs. The cultural context of my work is Judean. I am highly influenced by development methods pioneered by the Bengali, Cuban, Lebanese, Russian, Iranian, Kurdish, and Haitian peoples. In short, my work is in full pursuit of legal and structural human rights attainment secured by emancipatory development.

I’d like you to read some of my writing. I hope it provokes your involvement in action and struggle.
