The Cure

Change is not coming fast enough in our culture (or the world for that matter.) My catalyst for change was a realization that our cheap food is fueled literally by fossil fuels ('Omnivore’s Dilemma' - Michael Pollan). Folks, when the fuels run out, the wheels of transportation will come to a grinding halt and so will our food supply… I see wide spread famine at worst and hard times, very hard times at best.

I’ve been trying to write an entry for the past hour and can’t seem to get the words out without making it into a lecture. How do you tell someone that what they are doing is killing themselves and their loved ones? How do you say that you have the cure, but it involves taking away all that they think is most important to them. Most of all, how do you transmit the cure when your voice is small like a whisper in a hurricane? -Jason
