Rain changing to snow...last month was like summer, now we're back to our regularly scheduled programming.

The impending global collapse...we can do better

Money is make believe..it is all based on credit, credibility, credence...the latin root means belief. It doesn't matter if it is YHWH, Jesus, Mohammed, gold, silver, rock, paper, scissors. We need a new economic paradigm based on cooperation, local food and decentralised production of energy...the future could be elegant and simple, small is beautiful...and the entire world can participate in their own locale. Build for humans, not for automobiles...there are limits to the geometric growth model...the current system is predicated on exploitation and extraction and ever increasing populations. Meanwhile the world's fisheries are collapsing, people are starving and we're ever more reliant on foolish monocultured agriculture and genetically mutilated organisms...and there is divisiveness everywhere. We are not 'consumers'...that is what is inculcated through all our media. Tune out. Evolve.

Back to the Future

We need to quit the pyramid scheme that we have, and discourage rather than rewarding ever larger families...Yes the population is burgeoning...which, with our 'standard of living', is responsible for most of our ills. We need simpler, stable, sustainable systems...not a geometric progression into oblivion. Witness the oil spill off the coast of LA/MS/AL... This is insanity as are most of the world's systems...from religion to politics, agriculture to energy...

upstream from white sand beaches are hamlets, paddies and canyons bombshells unexploded, cratered land, cratered faces  mangled extremities...
