Folks in our Green Acres community never, ever, talk about world affairs. It’s just not part of our rich local interconnectivity. That we do not include the whole global shebang in our daily considerations helps me. I can relax and forget for awhile — a minute, or two, or three . . . So, when two women who live here actually asked me to tell them about Brexit, looking scared and vulnerable, I was astonished. Zowee! Things must be really heating up in the zeitgeist if the political/financial/cultural global shaking now penetrates our nourishing little world.
I tell them to go read my recent blog posts on the subject. Meanwhile, as usual, I am thinking three steps ahead, and wow, I really get off on these next two posts, especially when placed one after the other. First, James Howard Kunstler tell us in very colorful language how the whole .01% thing’s goin’ down. Next, an ex-CIA agent sees the way through: invoke interconnected systems thinking on all levels; run the entire world, local to global, as an open-source society, WHERE TRUTH RATHER THAN POWER IS THE CURRENCY. YES!
