Rest well:

Membership to this Discussion went from 38 yesterday to 57 today. I guess the word is getting around. Please, if you find any flaw with any of my reasoning, please explain what and why you disagree.

Wolff on the Charlie Rose Show - Richard D Wolff

The bad news, we have many challenges coming. The good news is, we know it, we can recognize some creative thinking about some actions that we need to take and time to start. If I/we are wrong about economy depression, climate change, and overpopulation, we will lose nothing by taking precautions. If I/we are right, we will come through the storm, a little tattered, maybe, and we will not only survive, we will flourish. 
So, to paraphrase Ruth, let's have some fun while doing it.
