What Shall This Man Do?

Filed under: American Revolution — Russ @ 9:26 am


I’m a farmer, and I do what I can to grow food, help others grow their own food, and build the Community Food sector.
And then I’m a writer. I write about the necessary new ideas and the ways it’s possible politically to organize to prepare for the necessary revolution of these ideas. I’m organizing all these ideas for my first book, and this blog has been, among other things, notes toward the coming books.
I’m not much of a public speaker (I can muddle through the infrequent times I have to) and I don’t thrive on having a hundred face-to-face conversations a day. Last night having one conversation about this stuff exhausted me. Therefore I’m not naturally a demagogue or organizer, and thus far I don’t have the touch of the real evangelist.
Nevertheless I’d do these things too if I had comrades, if we were building an organization together.
But for now, being totally isolated, facing a steel wall in every direction, and living among such people that even the seemingly decent ones are still all Good Germans, such that I feel I’m living, not even in a lunatic asylum, but within a cult compound; living amid such adverse conditions, it would be too demoralizing to do those things all alone and against such odds. It’s all I can do to keep up the prophetic writing. And I often wonder why I bother with that. I guess I have nothing left but the sense that some force always has driven me to the way I feel about everything I see, and I have no choice but to do the best I can to fight evil and build good.
I wish I had help, but so far there’s no one who cares about good and evil the way I do. This world cares more about the images of the propagandist. Thus the circus world, to give just the most extreme example.


  1. What else could you do? You’re a teacher. Keep teaching. You work the soil. That’s a solution and a revolution.

    You are not alone. There are others who feel the same and it is frustrating to be surrounded by the deeply conditioned statists and dependents but I think leading by example is all we have left. I try to find ways to block out the noise and things I can’t control. Either that or I’m going to take up heavy drinking…. 😉

    I have learned much from your script and I often share it with others. You are making a difference.

  2. Hi. You sound like you need some encouragement. I’m one of your silent readers. I don’t comment cos I don’t have much to add. In fact I’ve learned more about GM food from you than anyone which suggests you have a rare talent feor getting this across. I’ve never been sure till now if you were a loner or an org. Don’t even remember how I found you, but I get yr newsletter now. What can I say? You’re good. Keep going.

    • Thanks lafayette. Glad to hear there’s still readers. I intend to keep going. Not an organization yet, but I keep figuring circumstances will finally convince more people of the facts of what’s happening.
