Small is Beautiful

Just a couple links for your consideration.

In North American Secessionists Confront the Empire: Divided We Stand, United We Fall Dave Jansson looks at the contemporary and fairly diverse secessionist movement scene, its promise and pitfalls.

In The Age of Mammals, Rebecca Solnit offers a look into the crystal ball at one possible scenario for the dawn of the second quarter of this century as a means of assessing the current dark days and some of the interesting trends that have largely fallen under the radar. Indigenous movements, community farm co-ops, etc., may have seemed little more than a nuissance for those plotting the "New American Century" but could easily in retrospect have been the fabric needed to fashion a more sustainable means of human existence.
