"Your Honor, years ago I recognized my kinship with all living beings, and I made up my mind then that I was not one bit better than the meanest on earth. I said then, and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it; and while there is a criminal element, I am of it; and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free." - Eugene V. Debs

One thing I don't understand is people complaining about graffiti on trains and walls but they couldn't be bothered a bit by ads being everywhere in our daily life actively and literally trying to manipulate everybody's thoughts and actions. But it's legit because that access to your brain is bought with money.
The old lady gathers a few greens & herbs (here, collards, chard, beet greens, money plant and bigleaf maple flowers), chops them up & puts them in the cone of a four-cup coffeemaker. Adds water to make tea; water runs over the greens for a delicate blanching. She puts a bowl of rice in the steamer. When the rice is done, she combines the veg from the coffeemaker cone with the rice and has rice-and-veg lunch with hot veg/green tea.

These are twelve "slides" (at google for now; sorry) I have used when talking about the 12 perma principles elsewhere. I see I did not keep the "lecture notes" when I moved them out of the fb account (closing down). Oh, well. All these photos are by, and owned by, me; if you use them for anything there is no charge, but consider attribution.

Hesperian lives on their book sales, so think of this as a preview of sorts. From the publisher of Where There Is No Doctor.
