“If a company is too big to fail, it’s too big to exist.” -Bernie Sanders
By Rady Ananda
Invitation to discuss a bottom up economy, participatory economics, how to purify water, how to garden, etc. Plenty of videos on economics recommended. While the class war rages, here’s some info about food and farming.
Linn Cohen-Cole recently posted this: Goodbye farmers markets, CSAs, and roadside stands
“Slow Food reminds us of just where we need to be (and notice how much would help any local economy):
- Forming and sustaining seed banks to preserve heirloom varieties in cooperation with local food systems;
- Developing an “Ark of Taste” for each ecoregion, where local culinary traditions and foods are celebrated;
- Preserving and promoting local and traditional food products, along with their lore and preparation;
- Organizing small-scale processing (including facilities for slaughtering and short run products);
- Organizing celebrations of local cuisine within regions (for example, the Feast of Fields held in some cities in Canada);
- Promoting “taste education;”
- Educating consumers about the risks of fast food;
- Educating citizens about the drawbacks of commercial agribusiness and factory farms;
- Educating citizens about the risks of monoculture and reliance on too few genomes or varieties;
- Developing various political programs to preserve family farms;
- Lobbying for the inclusion of organic farming concerns within agricultural policy;
- Lobbying against government funding of genetic engineering;
- Lobbying against the use of pesticides;
- Teaching gardening skills to students and prisoners; and
- Encouraging ethical buying in local marketplaces.”
Oh, btw, here’s a list of videos on economics; I have not yet watched all of them:
The Federal Reserve is PRIVATELY OWNED
Louis McFadden on the Federal Reserve
Secrets of the Federal Reserve
Money, Banking And The Federal Reserve
The Money Masters
How Greenspan Skewered America
Money As Debt
JFK vs. The Federal Reserve
I’m all eyes.

When I asked why it wasn’t on the front page, I got no response.
Clearly the gatekeepers did not want anyone suggesting we don’t pay our taxes.
