Hi there! Eddie Che/ the shepherd here
Zen and the Art – Only a few pages in, the narrator wanders from his road trip to lament the lack of quality in his modern-day America. And that is still true today. Chomsky is very well-liked here on the Streets. Thich Nat Hanh and Buddha, at essence. A spiritual awakening of America as much as anything.
Driving through fields of corn, hay, and wheat in Eastern Minnesota, I know the future of America hangs in the balance. It’s a scale GMO monoculture that is the realization of history, dominating forests with fields … industrial repair places. A single street that goes through everything. I know country.
Meanwhile, we have a president leaves the country like.. “whoops, the gas ran out” and we have a giant depression, he will be on the running for worst president in history. On the other hand, if we don’t go to war we can build solutions that work without oil. As the national geographic documentary held, biological imperialism, rule and coercion by the rich and powerful over the oppressed, in this case forests and trees that were there. In many ways the realization of America’s power in the Middle East has also been one of coercion and imperialism, forcing a “freedom” so long as they continue to remain US allies, and rule with martial law. Selling oil.
Gasoline is such a lovely quality, though: good energy and clean and oh so usable. That’s why we need a whole nation to bus to DC on that cheap gas and tell them that we need to find an alternative before the oil runs out. Thanks, America :) I knew you had my back. You’re going to.
What brings quality? A walk in the woods, sunlight,
