"Capitalism is the extraordinary belief that the nastiest of men for the nastiest of motives will somehow work for the benefit of all."

— Attributed to J M Keynes

"When the accumulation of wealth is no longer of high social importance, there will be great changes in the code of morals. We shall be able to rid ourselves of many of the pseudo-moral principles which have hag-ridden us for two hundred years, by which we have exalted some of the most distasteful of human qualities into the position of the highest virtues. We shall be able to afford to dare to assess the money-motive at its true value. The love of money as a possession — as distinguished from the love of money as a means to the enjoyments and realities of life — will be recognised for what it is, a somewhat disgusting morbidity, one of those semi-criminal, semi-pathological propensities which one hands over with a shudder to the specialists in mental disease … But beware! The time for all this is not yet. For at least another hundred years we must pretend to ourselves and to everyone that fair is foul and foul is fair; for foul is useful and fair is not. Avarice and usury and precaution must be our gods for a little longer still."

Sitting quietly, doing nothing,
Spring comes and the grass grows,
By itself.

THOUGHTS FROM WITHIN by Woody Harrelson

I sometimes feel like an alien creature 
for which there is no earthly explanation 
Sure I have human form 
walking erect and opposing digits, 
but my mind is upside down. 
I feel like a run-on sentence 
in a punctuation crazy world. 
and I see the world around me 
like a mad collective dream. 

An endless stream of people 
move like ants from the freeway 
cell phones, pc’s, and digital displays 
“In Money We Trust,” 
we’ll find happiness 
the prevailing attitude; 
like a genetically modified irradiated Big Mac 
is somehow symbolic of food. 

Morality is legislated 
prisons over-populated 
religion is incorporated 
the profit-motive has permeated all activity 
we pay our government to let us park on the street 
And war is the biggest money-maker of all 
we all know missile envy only comes from being small. 

Politicians and prostitutes 
are comfortable together 
I wonder if they talk about the strange change in the weather. 
This government was founded by, of, and for the people 
but everybody feels it 
like a giant open sore 
they don’t represent us anymore 
And blaming the President for the country’s woes 
is like yelling at a puppet 
for the way it sings 
Who’s the man behind the curtain pulling the strings? 

A billion people sitting watching their TV 
in the room that they call living 
but as for me 
I see living as loving 
and since there is no loving room 
I sit on the grass under a tree 
dreaming of the way things used to be 
Pre-Industrial Revolution 
which of course is before the rivers and oceans, and skies were polluted 

before Parkinson’s, and mad cows 
and all the convoluted cacophony of bad ideas 
like skyscrapers, and tree paper, and earth rapers 
like Monsanto and Dupont had their way 
as they continue to today. 

This was Pre-us 
back when the buffalo roamed 
and the Indian’s home 
was the forest, and God was nature 
and heaven was here and now 
Can you imagine clean water, food, and air 
living in community with animals and people who care? 

Do you dare to feel responsible for every dollar you lay down 
are you going to make the rich man richer 
or are you going to stand your ground 
You say you want a revolution 
a communal evolution 
to be a part of the solution 
maybe I’ll be seeing you around

"Wealth without work,
Pleasure without conscience, 
Knowledge without character, 
Commerce without morality,
Science without humanity,
Worship without sacrifice, 
and Politics without principle.
The seven deadly sins”

The sign of intelligence is that you are constantly wondering.

Idiots are always dead sure about every damn thing they are doing in their life.

“The secret of the mountains is that they simply exist, as I do myself: the mountains exist simply, which I do not. The mountains have no “meaning,” they are meaning; the mountains are. The sun is round. I ring with life, and the mountains ring, and when I can hear it, there is a ringing that we share. I understand all this, not in my mind but in my heart, knowing how meaningless it is to try to capture what cannot be expressed, knowing that mere words will remain when I read it all again, another day.”

- Peter Matthiessen, The Snow Leopard
