It's pretty obvious that war as a solution to world problems is something that I passionately believe is murderous and ignorant… but you may wonder what drives me so far to believe such things. BME is in the unique position that it puts me in contact with people practising body modification and body rituals all over the world.
BME has posted pictures and stories from people in nearly every country, and from every cultural and socio-political group… and the amazing thing for me to always see is the same rituals and acts going on; not so much for the acts themselves, but because you see the same feelings — you see the same humanity looking out of the eyes of the people stripped naked by these acts.
Those pictures are from the “JAGUARCOLIBRI COLECTIVO” in Mexico; watch for a full gallery from them on the site later tonight when I get the update posted. In any case, it's just a wonderful thing to be allowed to see.
