US Dept of Energy office supports Peak Oil theory
Bob knows that I often stash links I find that I may or may not have read in my del.icio.us feed
which is then fed into my left sidebar. Today he found one I hadn't had time to read yet, and although he hasn't finished reading the report
either, took the time to highlight some important points. It's pretty damn graphic
so far. I don't know if I'll find the time to read the report soon, so I'm going to rely on his eyes
for further observations as he continues to read it.
Why do we need to ignore what the government (isn't) telling us and begin earnest change on our own? In this post
I said to ignore the government completely. I wrote the following in the comments of the post in an attempt to clarify exactly what I meant by ignoring a government that is doing nothing but standing in our way.
It struck me how much the government holds us, as a people back, by disseminating false information continually, regulating common sense until it no longer makes sense, working to order what cannot be ordered and standing square in the face of progress. Growing the military and our prison systems, our largest social programs by the way, seem to be second only to sucking up to corporate profits.
Across the board (right and left) I think the common man knows what we need to do, but because the government doesn't care to share what should be public knowledge, the urgency isn't there. Ignore that which stands in your way and do what it takes.
