I have known IOZ for my entire life, but it is clear to me that he has changed, and I must forcefully repudiate his views. Although he was there for my birth, at every birthday and holiday--a presence in my life and family for as long as I can remember--I can no longer support, nor be associated with, his divisive rhetoric. The suggestion that we are but soap bubbles on the skein of time does not reflect my belief that the collective nature of the human organism on this planet can be fundamentally altered and bettered through the judicious application of electioneering within the borders of the United States of America. IOZ's bitterness does not reflect my hope for a belief in change for a better tomorrow for the children. By pointing out that ours is a sexually backward patriarchal culture of racist exploitation that glories in state violence, IOZ shows how little he is interested in taking back America. He is no longer the man I thought I might once have somewhat known.
