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.

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.

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.

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.

The influence of the American Indian on the framing of our constitution is a piece of history rarely spoken of, and even more rarely, taught.
This article discusses some of the ways that the culture and historical experiences of American Indians shaped our constitution and political structure.

Comments are made that say that all we need to do is to "Tweek the system a bit" and it will go back to how it once was. We do not want to go back there. "Back there" was what brought on the current crisis. The people on this planet must find a fair and equitable way to live or we are not going to.

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!
