I have 18 fans: Become a Fan. You'll get emails whenever I post articles on OpEdNews
I deal with the contradiction of being a retired mechanical engineer and a Luddite at the same time. I have lost faith in our government: it is totally controlled by the corporate monster that is gobbling up the world. It uses mechanical engineers to make weapons or machinery to put people out of work while obscenely stripping natural resources. Mechanical engineers should be in green jobs helping the world adjust to a shrinking economy and the use of renewable energy, but that will not happen until this government collapses in its own stink.
Peak energy and global warming are double trouble that will manifest themselves soon. Consequently, I live in a rural area and am learning to grow my own food. This has brought me in closer contact with Nature, the real world, and I have never felt more spirituality. The country and the world can continue on its path to hell, and I will still find peace.
