According to, neo-liberalism is an approach to economics and social conditions in which control of economic factors is shifted from the public sector to the private. The main points of neo-liberalism include:

1. The rule of the market

2. Cutting expenditure for social services (like health care and education)

3. Deregulation

4. Privatization and

5. Eliminating the concept of the public good or community

Transition is a worldwide movement fostering and empowering communities. The goal is to unfold real community, not mesmerized people devouring the wipe out drug of corporate media.

"Keep them mesmerized and dumbed down" is the mode of operation of corporations. Watch commercial television. How long does it take you to realize you're being devoured within the stupefied mindset of the "powers that be?"

Through our commercial world, we are being ripped apart. Women are Barbie Dolls and men Ken. We are thus raped of who we are based upon corporate desire to make you good little consumers. Meanwhile, we function like the walking dead due to the brainwashing drug of modern corporations - (e.g., media, power hungry drama kings/queens such as the Trumps, Bushes and Clintons).

In that mindset, you don't feel a thing. Thus, the band Pink Floyd educates us when they sing, "We have become comfortably numb". This is our life under the rule of corporations.

You are not you in this corporate world. You are a consumer, a worker, retired, depressed, anxious, mentally ill, etc. You truly are not you...a living, breathing and sacred life that is here for the sake of the world.

I say this because there is not a one of us that is not a participant in the atmospheric physics of this planet. We breathe out carbon dioxide that plants breathe in. The plants then release oxygen that we breathe in. We are more than consumers of our planet; we are living cells within Her being. Instead of controlling and dominating Nature, we need to realize ourselves as aspects of Her being. We are cells in Gaia mirroring this entire universe.

However, our goal of corporate "Never ending growth" meets the criteria for cancer. Is this what we want to be?

The Earth, Gaia in ancient Greek literature, is wholeness. This is exactly the point of producing our food as reflected in Transition Towns and Permaculture Gardening. This type of gardening/farming literally mirrors the process of Gaia.
