  1. Hippy comune-ism works, Marxist-Leninism and state scosialism doesn’t. I think that’s the gap we need to cross with our permaculture tactical allies.

  2. I meant socialism… Can’t type & eat a cold slice of pizza at the same time :)

  3. I REALLY like the way Jack tied it all together at the end, with politics/lifestyle and all. He’s just stinkin amazing! Thanks, Jack!
