“OMG the debt ceiling! It’s overrrrrrrr!”
Well, sort of…
The US debt crisis wrangling in D.C. is crass, concocted political theater to keep the global masses scared and distracted, opening the door to yet more disaster kapitalism. Just watch: the ceiling will be raised at the 11th hour and Uncle Sam will continue to borrow and spend his way into the compost heap of history, yet another iteration of the patterns of the past (Rome, Spain, Britain, et al.) Today, Greece is just a prelude to the inevitable coming attraction.
Our job now, as intelligent beings who clearly see the game they’re playing, is to start getting creative about how we’re going to organize our communities & social affairs.
One place to begin is at the philosophical and macro-economic levels. This site is chock full of excellent free resources (ebooks, MP3 audiobooks, journals and pamphlets) to get your gears turning: libertyactivism.info
At the personal, micro-economic level, begin to apply permaculture principles at home in your immediate community: permacultureprinciples.com
Together, these two concepts are truly ECO-nomics and I believe that they go hand-in-hand.
For some of you, either of these concepts may be a whole new realm of experience & understanding, but as the collapse of current paradigm shows us, the system we have now is just not sustainable at all. Society needs to set out on a bold new path. Let’s start exploring, learning, networking and applying – sustainably, cooperatively, and non-violently.
