Disconnecting isn’t easy. Small and medium sized businesses can be affected so easily by what multinational businesses do. And I know from personal experiences that there are large businesses for whom the human dimension is important - I went to a business conference in San Diego once where Bill Gates forgot about the software topic he was there to talk about, and instead spoke about his real passion, which at the time was trying to solve malaria.

And even small farmers can get caught in the game, if a large company buys all their corn for ethanol or making plastics.

Sometimes I think my sister in law and her husband got it right. They live on a boat that he built with his own hands, and get most of their food from the sea. There’s not much a multinational finance conglomerate can do to her. :)

yea, certainly my suggestions aren’t black and white solutions. there are large companies that are doing great things and small ones that cheat their customers and employees. but generally, buying your produce from a farmers market instead of Costco is better for your local economy and has a more efficient use of resources behind its transport to you. i just thought to share some little steps that may help.

living on a boat sounds pretty amazing!

we all take baby steps to working together more, with folks we know, and we might get somewhere yet ;)

Yes. And YES. I certainly dig your “vocal wandering” path. I think the best part of this project is the focus on solutions.

Beautiful words ,this is not a U.S.A. only issue, I also really feel for it. From an artistic viewpoint, speech and whispering can produce either ethereal or techno remixes, while actually singing a melody might have helped some rock distorded guitar to express the “strike” idea.

Misquotation? Did Martin Luther King Jr say it or is that a myth too? I don’t find this quote on neither Martin Luther King Jr’s nor Ghandi’s wikiquote pages, and on the internet I only find it being remarked that Martin Luther King said it. I don’t know what to think. Got a source?

Gandhi said, “He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it.”

I’m asking because I don’t want to spread culture that is misinformed. Prove me wrong please.
