A few compass points (thrown together in response to someone poking me at FB):
- To control our destiny, we need to bring governments, corporations and the institutionalized looting and risk-shifting they engender under control.
- We do this in part by re-asserting ourselves, and demanding accountability and skin in the game by all, and in part by disavowing, backing away from and eschewing government "protections" that serve to constrain and enervate us and our communities, while providing tools of control, wealth-extraction and market exclusion to self-interested men who are outside of our communities.
- We are not islands unto ourselves, and it behooves us to cooperate and build healthy bonds with others.
It's a bit general, but it's a start. Your thoughts are welcome.
