First, congratulations on your commitment to making the world a better place. It's not always popular (or safe) to take a stand on principle when the rest of the world is unaware or insensitive to matters you find extr...

Recently this came across my feed posted by someone I went to school with long ago. It appears that all one must do is write anything and someone will deem it true without evidence or research. Put it in a 'presentation' and it becomes an empirical truth! The written w...

Interesting listen about the sad history of how my ancestors dealt with the indigenous folks who lived in my home state of Minnesota for a thousand years or more. Makes me wonder what Minnesota would be like if it had gone slightly differently where the Sioux had not b...


Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.
Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.
Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.
Words that soak into your ears are whispered… not yelled...

Since the Dustin's View article was published a few years ago, many folks have contacted us to share their thoughts and pose questions. Below is a recent response to a person who is struggling to find their own ethics around diet choices.

"Thanks for reaching out and as...

Daniel was asked by the Sustainable Living Conference to be a part of panel discussing an ethical, sustainable diet. One person said we should all be organic vegans, another said we should eat bugs, one said we should eat cows and Daniel had another idea.....

We give Thanks for Donald Popp and for all of his contributions he made to make this world a little better. He left this Earth today but his message remains loud and very clear. To hold onto your values, no matter the cost or opposition.

Donny was a simple farmer who ra...

It was just over 5 years ago that I was in NYC for the first and last time. I learned a lot of things those 2 months in that park, but becoming aware of my privilege was probably the best thing. I can see how being at the top of the privilege pile or (another way of lo...

 

Dustin Michels interviewd Daniel about his food-path and ever-expanding awareness. You can read it here INTERVIEW

 

Damn right. I used to be a conventional activist...speaking, lobbying, anti whaling ships, occupy wall st, being arrested in front of the white house, etc. I hitchhiked a lot of places, ate a lot of discarded food and tried to minimize my consumption as much as I could...

To Collapse Or Not To Collapse: Pushing for economic ruin or building a great transition" was the topic for this unconventional 'debate' for the Sustainable Living Festival held at Federation Square in Melbourne February 2015.

 

 

 

From where I'm standing, the city-sized Baogang Steel and Rare Earth complex dominates the horizon, its endless cooling towers and chimneys reaching up into grey, washed-out sky. Between it and me, stretching into the distance, lies an artificial lake filled with a bl...

 So I saw this little meme this morning and thought how great a reminder it is how cyclical our current situation is and how it takes real courage, strength and commitment to keep REAL democracy going. The question is, what is it going to take to get people to start wa...

 

Because the chickens and pigs were raised shoulder to shoulder with 10 thousand others in their own shit. You're tasting the misery in every bite. Eat meat from an animal that was raised on a small farm free ranging on grass, bugs and seeds and local non GMO grain and...

I feel the need to throw in here as I've been on both sides of the coin. I was a vegetarian for 10 years, a partner got me into it and I heard nothing but bad about the way meat was raised and I wanted to minimise suffering created on my behalf so I ate a lot of grains...
