    we shed are material desires and beat them to it. Once we starve the beast, through 1) reduced consumption of new goods and services, 2) alternative, parallel economies (barter, time banks, local currencies, etc.), and 2) Right Livelihood that reduces their labor pool, then we can move on to stepping on its neck and establishing a new, conscious social order that sizes its "needs" to the resources of the planet rather than the avarice of the plutocrats.

    Frankly, I'd rather take down Exxon or Goldman Sachs, the way we're taking down RushBeckistan, than elect another "better" Democrat who's going to wind up singing for the bankster choir.
