Questions for Discussion:

You know better than I what questions we need to discuss together.  The question is how to do it and who has the courage.

Questions for discussion. 

(1) What is the most important need in my community and who should be involved in a dialog about that issue.

(2) How does this need differ from the needs of the ecosystem?  How do you know what the ecosystem needs?  Which is more important and why? 

For a free copy of the Bare Bones Biology Ecology energy handbook, go to the right side of my blog http://factfictionfancy.wordpress.com, under chapters.  Be sure to let me know if it doesn’t work, or if you find something in the book with which you disagree.

Question for Discussion:  Which of the statements above are based in fact and which are primarily personal opinion?

What to Do?  Think about it.  Is it true that the Christmas and Hannuka Seasons and the New Year Celebrations are based on, and/or nurtured, the wisdom of realized teachers who were trying to grow viable human community?

Question for Discussion:

How can you develop a small, local, life-supporting community that seeks information about the real facts of Life, while at the same time making our human lives less competitive and more compassionate?  

Activity:

Look at the pictures in this blog.  How many things do you see that cannot be recycled by the corposystem.  Don’t forget the flyspray they used on the horses

Recommended Action/Question for Discussion: 

I’m tempted to suggest that you start an argument and consider what methods you use to win.  And what are the results.  But in fact I doubt that you need to know more about how to argue.  So instead I suggest you find a person with whom to discuss an issue and see how long you can keep it going without either of you having an obvious emotional reaction (because this will be a serious subject.)  Maybe you could try this one – http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2012/11/26/why_birth_control_is_still_a_big_idea

“In the United States, especially this year, any occasion when contraceptives and public policy overlap seems to be an excuse to fight about other issues.”

 Question for Discussion:  What is a community?  What is your community?

 

Suggested Action:  Purchase a $20 copy of the movie Economics of Happiness, or borrow a copy from the Peach Clubhouse.  Find a couple of friends who have not seen the film.  Invite them to dinner, a viewing of the film, and discuss the question above.   Better yet, go to The Economics of Happiness second annual convention in March -- in Australia!!  And/or, join The Economics of Happiness networking hub http://www.theeconomicsofhappiness.org/
