I was sitting on the thinking seat this morning and I had some odd thought about the way various religious groups taxed or required payment in animal sacrifices and various other tributes. it was an odd moment when I wondered which group invented this way of raising money. religious groups or governments? what I was thinking about was the average person and how leaders simply saddle them with extra weight to carry around on their backs.
I was sitting here thinking of the total debt load that probably is hovering over the government, private industry, and consumers and wondering, “how will all that ever get paid back?” a bigger question was, “how can it ever get paid back?” then I wondered about the various empires and how they did it through the history of time. All I could remember was the Roman empire.
This simple idea was based on me commenting to someone yesterday about the great depression in the united states. my grandparents remembered it and talked about it. it really didn’t affect them as much as it would people today, because in those days most were already poor. this is a strange reason why we are bringing agrowspace into the USA. most are unaware of the reality of food security when the distribution infrastructure breaks, and I think many people will go through a state of freaking out with the idea that hard times can fall upon even the strongest of nations.
but that is my day today. I head to Albuquerque, pick up some electronics and then come back to write up the plane of how to make the space. the people here are MIA, and I am a bit incredulous and now wonder if this is how they really operate? or is something wrong?
another guy where we are moving a portion of the project to said, “Santa Fe is great for people all talking about stuff…but getting anyone to show up and do something, like work, is problematic.”
have a great day…I realize today's missive is scattered, but I read the politicians saying, “it is a political game that our credit ratings have been downgraded!” I hear preachers constantly asking for money….and the normal person appears to be paying for their lack of business acumen. it is like me working for free to help people…who I wonder…do they really want to grow, or just talk about it?”
what cracks me up is how short life is, and how stressed people become chasing stuff. wouldn’t it be simpler, easier and happier to simply use what we need?
