To Work Or Not To Work ... That Is The Question

    Mr. Carvell - To be human is to have basic needs. To work is to provide the means to those needs - whether you are an African family tending a small plot of land, or a cashier in America. I do understand that the current monetary system makes at least 99 percent of us into "wage slaves" that tends to "trickle up" to those who are "murdering the planet", but when someone is at the lower end of the food chain, they don't have much say in how the process works. They can work, or they can starve. If you have some magical formula to get us out of this heavily funded racket, please share it with us!!

    Thanks again Vernon for putting this together. I know you were a little frustrated - maybe wanting the discussion to be less tangential. If you wanted to do a "Part II" in Jan 2014 or so, I would go. Thanks again - Mark.

    Conversation was most interesting and broader than most. I appreciated what personal experiences were shared.

    The displayed photo is not me. I'm not quite as ugly. Frank Zappa was not only an Avant-Garde Musician, but an active social philosopher. He took action using the first amendment in excercising his right to petition the government, and made some extremely valid points about just how much control the government should have over freedom of speech.

      We haven't ALWAYS met at this location, but we've been meeting there for the past few months ... and probably will continue meeting there for the foreseeable future. Why do you ask?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
