A little clip for everyone...

This video pretty much explains exactly how I feel
about the current situation of this society,
and just why we are facing the troubles that we are today.

Please view with an open mind...its entertaining as well.

"Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see."

-John Lennon.

So what can we do?
Seeing through the illusion of the work/consume cycle is a huge step.
Setting up our lives so we don't depend on their energy or food is another.
Once we stop giving them our labor, tax dollars, and consumer dollars,
they have less power. Once we stop fighting their wars and waking up
our friends and family to stop fighting their wars...they are much less powerful.

They need us to WANT STUFF. We need to believe that we are incomplete.
We need to believe that we need their products. We need to believe that we are
separate from Nature and the rest of humanity.

I know there are some out there that will always say:
"Jeez Rawmodel...dont focus on the negative. Youre such a bummer.
I was trying to enjoy my cacao smoothie...and now this?"
Shall we be misinformed? Pretending that everything is peachy while
they take away our freedoms and destroy our planet is a complete
cop-out. We are so much better than that.
We have to be aware, and we have to take action.
Remember...evil can only survive when good people do NOTHING.
Darkness cannot exist where there is light.

Ok...done ranting. Enjoy the clip. mind.

Question Anthony:
Would you say there was a direct correlation in your life with your interest in raw foods and your environmental/political awareness and the same, especially, with your permaculture project? Was there any interest or curiosity before you began exploring this alternative lifestyle? in other words, how much do you think your raw foods lifestyle has fueled your increased awareness and rejection of mainstream lifestyles?There's no point to the question really, I'm just curious. I appreciate your energy and drive.

Great vid. I concur. I've often wondered if the food available in the USA is designed to dumb people down as well. If people only knew how some of this food can open up a person...if they only knew.
Have a great week Anthony!
