Drumming While the World Burns

The Creator wants us to drum. He wants us to corrupt the world with drum, dance and chants. After all, we have already corrupted the world with greed and power…….which hasn’t gotten us anywhere. Now’s the time to corrupt the world with drum, dance and chants.”  –Babatunde Olatunji

Yesterday Mubarek stepped down from his reign over Egypt and I did my best to actually take it in and feel good for a few minutes. I was taking my nearly new Chevy Impala over to the dealer for some extended warranty pampering and the radio rang with the happy cheering of hundreds of thousands of Egyptians.  And when I came back to pick up my car, I got to sit in a cushy dealer lounge while they bribed me to mark their market survey ” extreme excellence” with a car wash and watch a big screen tv with mainstream media covering it in the later afternoon.

The well dressed news people  had quite the complacent attitude towards the whole thing: First they covered the resignation, then did a little dissing of Mubarek for being filthy rich in a poor country where so many live in poverty,  and talked  about  his  ill-gotten millions  being frozen, then there was a fuzzy and rather poorly disguised bunch of hooey about “concerns over keeping terrorist out ” in Egypt, now that the guy  that US Interests( namely oil) has been keeping in power since 1952 is out.

I find myself thinking about the phrase “Nero fiddled while Rome burned” lately because of the guilt I do my best not to  feel over continuing to  live the decadent, imperialist warmonger planet killing consumerist American life I live.  I don’t have the courage those Egyptians have, but I try not to close my eyes to all that is happening and live in depression, fear, hate, and confusion because of it. I live with someone who suffers from extreme chronic PTSD, and having to deal with him has proven to me that choosing to live from negative emotions is crippling. I’ve been fighting  my own war with oppression at home for far too long, and  I have chosen to believe that while I can’t fix the world, I don’t have to suffer every minute for it.  Instead, I want to help corrupt the world with drumming, chanting and dancing like Babatunde Olatunji, mainly because I now feel that it is something that I can do.
