On Our Own But in Charge of Little Save for the Choice to Starve or not, or have Shelter or Not.


This post from NBCnews.com joins the gowing littany of reports about the absurd contrast of human skill remaining within the process of mass production. More absurd still, however, is the fact that so little comment comes through concerning the production/consumption equation when it is humans who are  supposedly still going to be able to purchase this growing mountain of crap. Much less to be able to pay the bill for the delayed real costs of doing mass production/consumption for so long now.

If we are indeed on our own than why don't we act to the full measure of that condition. To do that, however, will require us to stop playing the diversion as occupation game. If the majority of us occupied ourselves with providing for ourselves sans the need for money, we might be able to have the authority as well as the responsibility to run our lives as we see fit.
