This morning I read the following passage, and thought that even though it was written about forty years ago, it's especially relevant today. When Nearing wrote it, it was a prediction, but now, we are living in permanent war, and the largest civil government (the US government) has been almost entirely replaced with a military state.

"Western civilization today is directed by a community of warfare states in which civil government is subordinate to military authority. The current arms race between the chief powers is one phase of the preparation for total, permanent war."

Scott Nearing, The Making Of A Radical

Well… Let's see what I have to do today…

I need to add a pile of images to the queue for upload tomorrow. I need to set something up to restore addresses for experience shirts. I should start working on a design for the May 20th BBQ shirt. I need to grab some groceries. … And I want to go get a tea pot (and that's not a euphemism; I've been drinking a lot of tea, and I'm sick of making it mug by mug).

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
