A Unified Movement? Where? The Occupy Movement is fried, where are we going?

 

Getting beyond the listservs, pundits, and U Tubes: how about a new “national newspaper”? Transition Television? Where is permaculture’s mega hit rock band? I can’t hear you!

 

Spiritual Now?! Forget the religion block from “Permie control” in Australia; without this healing power, we are just farmers.

s and Business Women? Too many expensive and redundant events, groups and classes; not enough grass-roots labs and initiatives, urgh?
