LIVING FOR CHANGEEvolution or ExtinctionBy Grace Lee BoggsMichigan Citizen Drontal allwormer for cats online without prescription, , April 24, 2009
I am inspired and encouraged by the many different alternatives that people in this country and around the world are creating to replace the dehumanizing and destructive capitalist system which, after all, only came into existence a few hundred years ago.
As Hazel Henderson put it in the paragraph with which I ended mylast column:
“We are beginning to see our world differently than mainstream media portrays. Purchase drontal online, We see our choices with new eyes. We know that money is not real wealth. Real wealth is generated by productive people using the Earth’s resources wisely, buy drontal online cheap. We are all rediscovering the many stores of value in our own communities, drontal allwormer for cats online without prescription. We find wealth beyond money. Buy cheapest drontal on line, We can change our values for the new times we live in and restore love economies (sic) to their central role in our lives.”
For example, I recently received an email from Kweili Tutashindasaying, “We are all in a monthly study group that has been meeting for over a year like you all in Detroit, tablet drontal. It was initiated by Wilson Riles, Buy generic drontal, Jr. a former progressive Oakland city council member, long timeactivist and a community consultant, buy drontal no rx. Drontal allwormer for cats online without prescription, We are pushing for a localcurrency.”
Thirty years ago Kweili was in the Ahidiana Collective in NewOrleans, studying Jimmy’s 1963 book The American Revolution: Pages from a Negro Worker’s Notebook and our 1974 Revolution and Evolution in the 20th Century. Now a chiropractor in Oakland, Drontal online without prescription, California, he is the author of It’s Our Time: Ella Baker, Participatory Democracy & Oakland, cheapest drontal, California. Drontal pharmacy online, He also runs a Holistic Health Center which has published a newsletter recommending healthy ways to deal with financial stress.
The Oakland study group calls their local interest-and-inflationfree currency the ACORN. In fashioning it, buy no rx drontal, they see themselvestaking a step into history, Drontal generic, ancient social learning, and deep intoculture, and also stepping into our technological, buy drontal pills, ecological, Drontal rx, mono-cultural future.
This is because they view economics as a human cultural phenomena and Euro-centric economics as extremely limited, drontal allwormer for cats online without prescription.
For example, Islamic religious law, cheap drontal pharmacy, called "Shariah, Drontal buy, ” regulates finances and prohibits risk, gambling, and interest or usury, cost of drontal. For much the same reasons the ACORN also prohibits these things. Cheapest generic drontal online, Thus they avoid the Euro-centric cultural debate about capitalism vs. socialism (both systems that abstract economics out of human cultural systems) and free themselves to talk about systems of exchange that are fair, harmonious, drontal drug, and strengthening. Drontal allwormer for cats online without prescription, By openly recognizing the positive aspects of "Shariah" Law , theyalso see themselves striking a great blow against those who want todemonize Muslims who believe in "Shariah." The ACORN, they say, will be Shariah Law compliant. Discount drontal overnight delivery, If need be, it will associate itself withthe Lariba Bank of Southern California, a bank that applies Shariah Law and would have no problem facilitating ACORN’s interest-and-inflation free local currency, cheap drontal in canada.
Christianity and Judaism, they note, also have strong prohibitionsagainst the same financial behaviors. So they anticipate that trueChristians and true Jews will support an interest-and-inflation freecurrency.
Kweili also sent me his paper on “ The Ethical Implications of Nanotechnology: A Discussion of Aristotelian and BuddhistPerspectives,” which ends with this paragraph:
“Another voice in this debate is the one of traditional indigenoussocieties. Today, although the numbers are decreasing, millions ofpeople live traditional lifestyles, drontal allwormer for cats online without prescription. Some groups are hunter andgatherers and have not even joined the industrial age, let alone theelectric and now biodigital and computer age. Yet modern civilizedhumans have not yet definitively proven, any more than Aristotle and Buddha over two thousand years ago, that they are any happier or spiritually evolved than ancient societies or traditional people. Insome respects, traditional people are needed so that we can observeways of being and existing that generates its own happiness withoutmany machines. Without romanticizing them, it can be safely saidthat many are happy without modern religion, science, or technology. Again, it comes down to purpose. What is the ultimate purpose of nanotechnology. The answer to this question will ultimately determine its ethical implications and ramifications.”
Obviously we have a lot of thinking and rethinking to do at thiswatershed in the continuing evolution of the human race.
