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.
Letter to Angelina Jolie
This entire civilization is in free fall to something entirely new. When we hit the bottom and the system shatters completely we will all be aware of it. Right now places like OPED allow us to see what is happening even now when things still work in many ways and places

Christmas and Solstice of 2012:
The deeper we go within our essential Self the more we see that the problems of the moment fade away and are replaced by the stillness of an Ever-Now Eternal Moment forever giving birth to itself.
Is Sauron Slipping?
Modern myths revisiting times like the one we are in now, as well as astrology and current events, all tell the same story.

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

Missed Step In an Eternal Dance
We are an adolescent species learning of our immortal soul-status by killing our planet. Self-Accuse and Self-Forgive and Keep Dancing ...What Else Can We Do????? God and the Universe Will forgive Us ... The Trick is Will We Forgive Ourselves??? That is a tough one. That is how we master the challenge of this time !!!
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!

This Spidery Spring Morning
The beauty of this world is meant to be enjoyed briefly. We are meant to live lightly in this world and try and find our home in a world far greater. Things that hold us too much become like spider webs and spiders and can hinder our development and give us a sting of poison
Two Deep Water Horizons
If there is still any chance for this planet given the current Deepwater Horizon Crisis then we better start doing things very differently. We must, if we are to have a ghost of a chance of surviving, begin to change human culture enormously.
Inner City Homeless One
As above so below, and visa versa. As we construct our little cities so the nation is cast into a macro-recreation of same

Start a "B Corporation"
All the dinosaurs are gone. Little warm blooded rat like things went on to evolve and people the earth.
Today the cold blooded thing about ready to go extinct is the corporation.
Niches are opening up for a new kind of life on earth.

Michael Moore on the Death of GM
Michael Moore wants GM to do something different. Japan, he tells us, has trains that go 165 miles per hour .... Japan is celebrating the 45th anniversary of its first bullet train this year. Now they have dozens of them. Average speed: 165 mph. Average time a train is late: under 30 seconds. They have had these high speed trains for nearly five decades -- and we don't even have one! The fact that the technology already exist

Current Evolutionary Leap
The thing that may be about to radically downsize might be the human ego and all humans that cannot downsize their egos may be about ready to go extinct.
What is our government up to now? The GIVE Act
Here is a bill currently up for review: GIVE Act H.R. 1388. Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act. What does it say? It appears to be part of a wider legislative effort to turn the country into a Police State... one more piece in a gigantic puzzle.

From Perilous to Possible
Like a breath of fresh air is news of anything that brings hope that there will soon be, or already is, a movement to a new system to take the place of a system that is bringing us every day more and more bad news. So here is some good news.

What is a Corporation?
Although, as Rady Ananda correctly pointed out, that the new Ecquador constitution has been in effect for a time it is something we may need to look at more deeply

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.

Don't Say 'Capitalism' in Argentina
In Argentina the bubble burst awhile ago, in 2001. An article in TheNation.com posted Feb. 12 2009 tells us what they went through and how they feel now and how thinking here may eventually go as well.
