The crumbling west, the rising asian tigers and the "developing" world are all very different, and in very different stages of evolution, yet all depend on oil.
So may the oil run dry soon, very soon.
There are some exciting dissident actions emerging among very ordinary people. This makes me very happy.
- The dncdisruption team will look at exposing the truth about the "democratic national convention" in the US in August.
- Cindy Sheehan has become a force to be reckoned with.
- Dissent is sort of still alive in South Africa via the APF, Geasphere, anti-eviction campaigns and young journalists and Richard Spoor ... among others.
- South America and elsewhere friends of people close to nature (fpcn) are documenting loggers attacks on indigenous Amazonians
One more favourite site: "Rocks are slow moving spirits and they are all Elders. Rocks may seem cold and unfriendly but they’re not. You just need to be patient until they speak. The most talkative Rock Elder I know lives next to Grandmother Ash and, when the light is just right, he has a human face. I often look at him when I sit under Grandmother and he gives advice occasionally. He tells me to work slowly to build what I want. Be steady and firm in the basics so that the imagination and intuition can wander wherever they want and always have a safe home to return to."
