The Story of MORE Stuff
A while back we shared the original Story of Stuff with everyone we could. What a marvelous way to clearly explain our connections to economic, social and environmental actions. Plus Annie Leonard... Rarrr!
She has just come out with a video for our newest greenwashed anti-heros: CrAP and TiRADE.
We shouldn't be surprised that a lot of the "answers" to our problems are making things worse.
But there is hope even for those who would only fuck bikes and then probably masturbate too frequently (no fingers being pointed, just saying...). Sharing info with others!
If you happen to live in the Portland area you are commanded to take note!
Conrad Schmidt, creator of The Work Less Party and The World Naked Bike Ride is coming to Portland and will be joining in a radical forum discussion about the future. He will be talking about his new book, Efficiency Shifting and how if we are just a little smart about economics the future might not suck (figuratively). Where as we will be able to talk at length about how it will totally suck (literally). So you can see how this is going to be a festive time.
No firm dates as of yet but it is expected to happen around February 11th. Could a naked ride follow the discussion?
This holiday season give the gift of knowledge. Drink deeply from those juices. Let the power of understanding fill you and then do something rad.
