Pandora's Box (Without the Hope?)

Things are moving slowly, way too slowly, with respect to efforts to organize in the Eugene/Springfield & Vicinity Region.

Two members, thus far, and very little in the way of real solid interest expressed to me thus far.

Too many special interests, too many diversions, too many special interests, too many myths, too many special interests, too much diffusion and libertarianism and anarchy and entropy, too many special interests, and too many egos.

We live in a genocidal, ecocidal, automobile culture that can't or won't get the message, or just don't care that they are suicidal, as not so well.

So, I'm frustrated.

In response to your note: we can barter with our neighbors, if we know them and each has something to contribute. I'm not a fan of local currencies, and we have left the gold and silver standards far behind.

The key is to dissolve the Federal Government except to have direct access to the Treasury, at least until we have the time to move to a world currency.

Right now, we have pandering businessess: of the businesses, by the businesses, for the businesses and a servile TO business and oppressive FOR business system of Governments that are: of the Businesses and Governments, by the Businesses and Governments, for the Businesses and Governments.

Our tall order is to replace this with a system that is an economic democracy of the people, by the people, for the people.

At this moment, I'm not feeling very hopeful.
