The State of Small Farmers Standard of Living and the rural brain drain

What is the state of the standard of living in the US right now.Simply 50% decline as per a recent study:

How about life in rural America and where the most of family farmers livelyhood is located ?

Educated farmers can enrich not just the farms but also the society where they farm.

Are we pursuing a strategy to create more farms and educate more farmers ?Are we concerned about raising the standard of living of farmers  not just their COST of living or MAKING a LIVING?

This is the come back of the 1929 economy of DEPRESSION .Are we prepared to go and dig out the VICTORY GARDEN lessons of the Depression to learn how Americans survived ?

 

Farmers need answers ..they need acts to remedy the neglected STATE of FARMERS!

 

History repeats itself only if we are left in the darkness and did not take lessons and do something about raising our standard of living especially by riding the wave of GREEN SUSTAINABLE ENERGY and LIVING !

 
 

The New Earth and the NEW WORK from a vision to a REALITY -VISUAL!

The time and the ay is now .The vision is to create  jobs where there aint any!

My friend has an Herb Farm and she has been nervous about the early heat waves that are killing her plants and her business.The climate change is here .

Gas prices will hit $% by the summer and the food prices will follow suit.

We are at a turning point.Our values about what is worthy work and unworthy work are about to go upside down.The impact of the consumerism mentality is having a toll on us as we lose more jobs,homes,cars and you name it.Ownership and property values are going through a change not of HANDS but also of HEART! 

Soon the New Earth will be home for new wave of workers whose jobs are not defined as worthy because of the scientific  or hi-tech glitter.Soon there will be a rush for the new gold that we have shunned as unworthy:FERTILE SOIL!

The New Earth will place more value on ENTROPIC WORK!

Entropic work such as farming or productive gardening is the key to a SPIRITUAL life.

According to Fritijof Capra, author of "The Turning Point" A ZEN approach for meaningful working and living.Is it more of worth to work to live or live to work? 

I qoute:"Doing work that has to be done over abd over again help us recognize the natural cycles of growth and decay,of birth and death, and thus become aware of the dynamic order of the universe."The point is to reach for ORDINARY work that is in synchronicity and harmoney with NATURE!

What is more ordinary than FARMING? Only in America farmers and I mean Urban or small family farmers starve and lack health insurance and all the aminities and benefits that we- as humans- all need!This is not to mention the support  from financial stimulus to other social acceptance and status appreciation .The highest salaries in Europe are paid to CHEFS and Farmers are a valued resource and they have a better financial support from governments , unlike the status of small family farmers in the US who lack the essential help needed .The reason why is :Big Agri-Business dominates the industry!

Not for long , as we come closer to a NEW EARTH AWARENESS .Change is in the AIR!

 
 

Community living and farming while being DIFFERENT: racially and HORTI_culturally speaking.

I am naive about the way humans treat each others in this INFORMATION past industrial age..not to mention being an URBAN farmer living in a Southern city .

 

Most of us do not know how to communicate well without the F and M F rich vocabilary of profanity.Add to this the racial divide among whites,blacks,moslems,christians and you name it.People here in the South are so much addicted to UNDER  the influences whether racial or halucinational ones...you name them!

Excuse my naivity ,and try to explain to me so I can  understand , why we here in this 21st century regime change facebook revolutions and demionstrations :why we feel dormant and timid here in the heart of DEMOCRACY  country We invade other countries with bombs to teach them a lesson in democracy ??.What is the point? It is not the ecconomy stupid! Its we  stupified ,nullifed,and pacified by the ecconomy .

WE are losing our jobs,homes,cars,farms,lands (soon our minds)to the banks and we go and deny it all and point the finger at a dictator like kadafi or Hussein and let the programmed TV audience be distracted rather than demonstrating  against the local evils done to their lives and homes.

While Americans are  now being thrown into the streets as homeless by our own banks and partners ,politicians etc We still go to wqars to preac Democrady by FIRE."To whom are you reading your psalms , David?" The bible asks!..

What matters most?Being rational or racial?Being one will negate the other..You choose!You can not be both and stay mentally stable!

 

Some prefer to be financially stable rather than mentally..Thats why we are here!End of venting!

 

I want to talk about peiople  who put on masks and hide their intentions and identities to inflict pain emotionally and racially on others and go by the traditions of sifting people by being defining them as either  gentiles or  jews.Blacks or whites.Immigrants or citizens ...and so forth ...This is exactly what happened in Germany during the THIRD REICH...First they went after the JEWS.Then they went after the GYPSIES.Then they went after the Comminist and the homosexuals ...and by the time it was XY turn ...no one was left  to HELP.

Here is another ficticious   scenario ."They started with the Moslems, then the Latinos and immigrants ...next the Christian radicals ..then the you name it radicals.. bY THE TIME  they WILL come to GET  you,,,nobody will beLEFT to HELP you.JUST SAYING A FICTITIOUS SCENARIO..IT  HAPPENED ONLY IN A DREAM!!

So keep on feeding  the racial profiling beast...by the time it will reach you...no one will be left to help you.
