Every chef now states that their dishes are seasonal and local. This makes one wonder: what were they cooking before? Food not in season and from very far away? Maybe if this had been pointed out it would have opened our eyes. Do you really have to say this every time you cook? Sadly you do, as the people who provide most of our food are the mighty supermarkets who feel it is their job to sell us strawberries in winter and organic avocados from Peru, all in the name of the illusion of abundance.

We must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, militarism and economic exploitation are incapable of being conquered.

When The Student Is Ready, The Master Will Appear

dom72:

A quote from Buddha

A quote i always got wrong, i looked at The Student and Master as two separate Entities. Further compounded by my loathing of the term Master and the connotations of submission that accompany the term. So i fought the meaning. i changed Master to Teacher, yet still i got it wrong.

It wasn’t till looking within myself with the intent of defining myself i heard “i am my own Master”….  So then i am my own Teacher as well, awesome. But even Teachers at one point have to learn to teach? Yes, by doing as you will to learn(teach yourself).

Being A ready Student…… in the crudest and most simple of terms, Shutting Your Fucking Mouth…. and Listening.

To what?

EVERYTHING

You’re born absolutely free except for laws of nature, if you drink you get drunk, that’s a law, if you get old you die, that’s a law too; if you sit on a tack you will bleed from the ass, these are the only laws that you’re born with.

My wife suggested I turn to the literature of suicide. With all the current attention to people killing themselves, perhaps there I could find solace; perhaps I might even find some practical help. I found neither. Of some 2200 works on suicide that had been published since 1965—books, articles, reports in professional journals, thesis—only a handful even mentioned the effects of suicide upon survivors. Most of the scholary works and most of the research dealt with the person who kill himself. The popular press likewise almost never concerned itself with those left behind.

… over 800,000 people, worldwide, kill themselves every year. Suicidologists estimate that, for every person who successfully kill him- or herself, seven to ten people are intimately affected: parents, siblings, children, aunts, uncles, grandparents, grandchildren, close friends. At a conservative level, that means that approximately five million “survivors” are left behind every year. Assuming that most of those people remain living for another 15 to 20 years, we have the staggering notion that, conservatively, there are 80 million men, women, and children now living who are suicide survivors.

For the state centralisation is the appropriate form of organisation, since it aims at the greatest possible uniformity in social life for the maintenance of political and social equilibrium. But for a movement whose very existence depends on prompt action at any favourable moment and on the independent thought and action of its supporters, centralism could but be a curse by weakening its power of decision and systematically repressing all immediate action. If, for example, as was the case in Germany, every local strike had first to be approved by the Central, which was often hundreds of miles away and was not usually in a position to pass a correct judgement on the local conditions, one cannot wonder that the inertia of the apparatus of organisation renders a quick attack quite impossible, and there thus arises a state of affairs where the energetic and intellectually alert groups no longer serve as patterns for the less active, but are condemned by these to inactivity, inevitably bringing the whole movement to stagnation. Organisation is, after all, only a means to an end. When it becomes an end in itself, it kills the spirit and the vital initiative of its members and sets up that domination by mediocrity which is the characteristic of all bureaucracies.

In the social order reciprocity is the formula of justice. Reciprocity is defined in the maxim: Do as you would be done by. Or translated into the language of political economy: Exchange products for products, buy your products mutually from one another. Social science means simply the organisation of mutual relations. Give the social body a perfect circulation, that is, an exact and regular exchange of products for products, and human solidarity is assured, labour is organized

[To] put the question back, where have the intractable, obstructionist Republicans been when it came to intractable obstruction of Mr. Obama’s never ending sops to the ruling class? They could have revived the fortunes of their party with calls to jail the banking malefactors who Mr. Obama gave free passes to, to end the ‘too-big-to-fail’ guarantees that maintain the corrupt, dysfunctional banking system and with calls to end his Afghanistan adventure that funds military contractors and slaughters innocent civilians. The answer is that current Republicans are ideologically opposed to holding the ruling class responsible for their crimes and limiting how much they can loot and Democrat Barack Obama is factually opposed to holding the ruling class responsible for their crimes and limiting how much they can loot. How do we know this? Those are his policies.
