I am a hippy that never dropped out. I have held on to impossible idealism and will not give up. I think the human race is a ticking time bomb and we are at the last tick. So what is the good of slow careful pragmatism that allows time for it all to happen with less than miraculous speed ? Right now we need near-impossible idealism or we need to go extinct so we can stop killing our planet. Other life forms may need it after we have almost destroyed it. Humans seem to be a very clever but unwise species that is not making it. At the very least we could go down with a little dignity. We have no planetary culture with both head and heart. And our numbers are so great we must have that. See you next lifetime on another planet incarnated in another species, I guess.

The Overthrow of Sauron Letters, words, sentences, paragraphs, chapters, books and libraries have beginnings and endings. This time is a time when we rewrite the whole library. Tokien's Lord of the rings tells of such a time long ago and the myth has much meaning today

Corporate and Governmental Personhood Denies Its Persons All energy in this realm is entropic energy or energy moving relentlessly toward chaos. Scientists in studying the subatomic realm find a place where this is not so. All the holy men tell us "Go Within". To find your own inalienable right to be a person who has the right of self determination and the right to assemble with like persons one must seek first an inner realm. One finds there that one has the right to BE!

An Oxymoron: "Marxist Communism" The other day I saw an article talking about Gorbachev. The article said he recommended a middle way between east and west, a middle way between ultra-competitive individualistic capitalism and ultra cooperative group-oriented ( in theory ) communism. I want to second this idea and say more about it.
