Socialism is Big Government?

No, I don't advocate big government. I advocate self-government, with limited governments that primarily fosters and facilitates a transition to a community/syndicalist economic democracy of the people based on neighborhood/inter-community/inter-regional and worldwide organization and cooperation.

Until we have a change in the Capitalist controlled government and media, it will be a constant struggle against propaganda to consume more for the "good" of the economy. Folks like us, have changed our lifestyles, and I have personally "been the change I want to see in the world" for many years. But it is going to take more than that.

We are the Davids in the David vs. Goliaths struggle, and the Capitalists and their minions are the Goliaths. We are the Jonahs and the Capitalist system is the whale.

As the Capitalist system, predicated on maximizing infinite growth, continues to fail, we need to do more than garden. We will need to pick up the pieces and rearrange them to serve the needs of people.
