Only Love Remains

Most people would say I’m not religious. I’m not spiritually religious, although I exhibit some behaviors in a religious manner.

A response to my critics and further adventures in Ecuador

I continue to receive abundant criticism for driving an automobile and taking flights on commercial airlines.

The result is embedded below, with thanks to hosts and facilitators Jenny Ferry, Carolyn Baker, Jenelle Green, Dan Green, Deanna Meyer, and Patrick O’Leary (and also thanks and apologies to those I’ve doubtless forgotten).

Video clips and forthcoming events

The two clips embedded below were shot by Pauline Schneider a month ago. They are part of a documentary film she is creating. My latest essay for Transition Voice was posted today. “As the Empire declines it gets nastier” is linked here. UPDATE: I was interviewed by Michael C. Ruppert on the Lifeboat Hour Sunday …
