    i think you and i see matters pretty similarly. i've for years viewed the now-upon-us 12/21/12 date in strictly metaphorical terms.

    the world goes on, but something will come to an end -- out of necessity. it's a slow unfolding, but boy howdy, are we ever in the think of it. and yes, my sense is as well that what we will have to jettison is an economic system that serves us (and the environment) so very badly, not to mention the flawed thinking that gave it rise and has continued to prop it up.

    t'd & r'd

      That.

      Because otherwise, your French Revolution leads to your Reign of Terror. You get Animal Farm. I don't know that humanity can afford one of those on a planetary scale.

      One slight regret: If we do pull this off, we'll no longer see works of art like Animal Farm. Or Won't Get Fooled Again.
