- "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly." Martin Luther King, Jr.

There is bipartisan agreement between the two corporate-controlled parties to slash … Continue reading
“To me, this is the fundamental issue at stake when considering the impending collapse of this global empire.

We don’t know how to grow food – and I don’t mean non-native tomatoes in pots, that we use to decorate the arugula we buy from Whole Foods, I mean real food, calorically- and nutrient-dense, enough to keep us from starving. We don’t know how … Continue reading
This November You Have An Opportunity: Stand For Something Beautiful or to Maintain Your Complicity in a Culture of Death

It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he … Continue reading
