“A ‘no’ uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a ‘yes’ merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.”
Mahatma Gandhi

And the times they are a changing


An Italian restaurant where produce can be bartered for a mealt.

I see a movement where local energy is consolidated and focused and that feels great. However what is even more interesting to me are the economic waves this will send out and their effect on the national system and beyond. Less exchange of money means less revenue … means less taxes … means less power to government (national and local). I am extremely curious to witness such power shifts. I believe that in most places this shift will be met with stubborn opposition from social organizations that are unwilling to change. I also believe that those few places that will embrace this change will give birth to new ideas of governance and social organization … there we will witness innovation of future social constructs.
