It's still popular to ... insist that globalization is a rising tide that lifts all boats, but the hard reality is that the last thirty years have seen America's once proud and prosperous working class thrown to the wolves, so corporations could keep boosting their quarterly profits and the middle class could maintain a filmy illusion of wealth through access to cheap consumer goods.More John Greer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

EROEI [energy returned on energy invested, or net energy] is to a civilization what gross profit is to a business, the source of the surplus that supports the entire enterprise.More John Greer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
... the future is under no obligation to wait patiently while we get ready for it.More John Greer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
