By Shae Russell from the Daily Reckoning Australia • Zeitgeist or devil? • Globalisation hurts the individual in the long term • Anti trade? Or pro local economy? Melbourne, Australia Friday, 8 February 2019. Dear Reader, I am currently writing to you from my Microsoft Surface Pro 4 while sitting comfortably in my hair salon chair. Surprisingly, this super comfy chair was made here. My German shoes are resting on a steel pole from a local metal worker. My overpriced designer t-shirt was made by a Bangladeshi worker. And my faded jeans came straight out of Vietnam. The dye being […]

My friends all know my feelings – I have often said; “Sincerely wrong people are the most dangerous people in the world”. I guess that a lot of people who swallowed the propaganda of the Bush administration, will now admit they were sincerely wrong. What is scary, is that the people who opposed the war on Iraq and who were privy to inside information and knew of the fraud being perpetrated at the time, did not [or could not] make it public. Why have they waited 17 years to expose what happened, via these video interviews. If the events portrayed […]
Future Forest – Turning Today’s Desert into Future’s Forest Update: We were delighted to receive an email from Ambassador Kwon Byong-hyon.

Understanding Neighbourhood Planning In Your Local Community Want to have a say over where new homes, shops and offices are built or what new buildings should look like? Maybe you want to protect and enhance your local high street, choose where new industries should be located, or protect your local green spaces for generations to enjoy in years to come?

Local people can also grant permission for […]
We can all take a lesson from this video. Watch the wake up call of this community. May all your dreams come true this Christmas, Cheers, Kitty.
The community of McMurdo Station on the West Antarctica ice shelf has a resident population of around 200 people. This number grows to over 1,000 when conditions are favourable for scientific research. Almost three miles of ice buries most of Antarctica, cloaking a continent half again as large as the United States. But when an Antarctic ice shelf the size of Manhattan collapsed in less than a month in 2002, it shocked scientists and raised the alarming possibility that Antarctica may be headed for a meltdown. Even a 10 percent loss of Antarctica’s ice would cause catastrophic flooding of coastal […]

Community Rights educator Paul Cienfuegos explains how “We The People” are exercising the authority to govern ourselves and dismantle corporate rule. When small farmers in rural Pennsylvania wanted to say “no” to a corporate factory farm coming into their community, they learned they couldn’t, because it would violate the corporation’s “rights” and state pre-emption laws. So they did something technically illegal – their town passed an innovative ordinance banning corporate factory farming. It worked! The corporation left town. Pittsburgh upshifted the approach: Rather than define what we don’t want, define what we DO want. Their “Right to Water” stopped natural […]
