...I think its more like a religious conversion really. Kind of like a biblical "take up your bed and follow me" moment. My husband and I went to see Bill McKibben speak at UNM yesterday. And all I can think about is how twisted our economy is. If the elementary rules of economics were true, then we wouldn't have such a demand for such useless stuff, right? In a free market economy our own deterministic forces would drive down the cost of excavation for raw materials, and locally produced goods would be cheaper than goods from afar right?

I know that what went wrong has to do with the bureaucratic process of reifying the corporation into the political monster that it is today... but what am I as an ordinary citizen supposed to do about watching it rape and pillage the earth and spreading the cancer that could kill mankind?

Should I become the weirdo hippie that my family suspects I might become someday?
