Same Procedure as Every Year


  1. It would be nice if many of the 'movers and shakers' of the world could try adopting a significantly different procedure for next year; but I have little hope of that.

  2. Yes, they don't make it easy for us to reach inward contentment.

  3. I like tradition!

    As for the other thing, Naomi Kline in her book This Changes Everything pointed out:

    “We are stuck because the actions that would give us the best chance of averting catastrophe — and would benefit the vast majority — are extremely threatening to an elite minority that has a stranglehold over our economy, our political process, and most of our major media outlets.”

    1. Naomi Klein's analysis sounds convincing. Unfortunately she does not offer ways to overcome such structures in a peaceful manner, and therefore is no threat for what she calls 'an elite minority'.
      Which is why "She Changes Nothing".
