This post is a two headed snake or two snakes I can’t tell apart. I realize that my posts don’t wander very far from the theme of returning to symbiosis with nature as a cure for our history of antagonism toward it and to thereby, hopefully mediate the impending karmic comeuppance on the social, economic, political and environmental scenes. This time I had two posts working simultaneously when I realized that the derogatory reputation of the peasant in modern life was wrought by the same evolution that made our tools our masters and we their slavish morons. I will leave them as separate posts for the perspective I gained when I realized that the government has become so corporatized that mere thrift is anti-American and barter is downright treasonous. You don’t have to march in protest to be a terrorist anymore, merely living without paying the price that is being protested is enough.
