The Crash Course by Chris Martenson

Gandhi: "Satyagraha is a process of educating public opinion such that it covers all the elements of society and in the end makes itself irresistible."
Every man his own radical,
Every man his own Thinker,
every man his own ideals,
every man his own understudy
and his own actor when
the time for action comes --
that is the only basis for radicalism.
That is the only basis on which
the present order of society
will be changed.

What you see in my title has one meaning. What you hear in it has another. I will address both meanings.
If you are un- or underemployed, you would like, and may often dream of, a new, more authentic and secure foundation for living. You would like, and may often dream of, giving your best in a setting characterized by individuals giving their distinctive bests. You are very weary of reading and hearing that people are lazy, ignorant and indifferent, concerned primarily about how…Continue

Lindsay Newland Bowker brought the fact of declining general public support for #Occupy to us yesterday in a status post that was soon off the site's front page. She asked what it means. My thought is in my title for this blog.
We live in a time that mixes confusion concerning wants and needs with profusion of offers to satisfy both. Once someones complain or cry foul, people want to know…Continue

In another blog, I decried the resignation that saturates our culture. Deep down, people have known that real life isn't so hard and precarious as is the real world. People knew that…Continue

In the USA and places with related cultures, the dominant paradigm (conception or view) of the human being is a negative one. It was imposed and is sustained. As a result of its ongoing influence, both expectations and hopes of humans, in general, are low. While accepted etiquette prevents much direct and malicious disrespect, forms of What did you expect? and They'll change only at the last minute, or later! and You've got to…Continue
Thank you David for your acknowledgement. I wonder sometimes with all this talking...is something "happening". I'd love to hear the stories of how people are connecting and doing together what they can not do alone. Just wondering :-) I look forward to many "happenings" that have yet to be revealed.
Hi David - Would love to chat when we can!! I'm away this weekend but next week would be good for me. Since I'm retired any time would be OK - why don't you pick it and we'll make it happen. Thanks for reaching out!! Rich
Thanks David for turning me on to Occupy Cafe. I look forward to some interesting insight and dialogue.
Yes it will and we are currently preparing to launch "Friends of Lakota" via the Ning site. What do you do other than climb? Good pic. Latter Mushin
Hi David, No clear plans for thehumanxperience right now. I am attached to whatever it might become in the future. Scott (also OccupyCafe member) set it up for me a few years ago. Want to read your latest posts, may not have time to for a few days but looking forward to when I do.
Hi David! Thanks for the welcome. I'd enjoy meeting you in person too sometime!
Good to see you here too, David! :-D
Candidate forrrrrr what?
Thanks for the Friend link, David! I can tell by scrolling your wall that our paths will be crossing on a regular basis.
