I think this really makes a good point and it's uplifting in a way. These are the kind of tunes that get me motivated to keep on building my homestead. It's not us vs them. It's us vs us... now. me vs me for them... or something like that.

Anyway.... have a listen and see what you think.

That was pretty intense. A couple times I had to resist the urge to turn it off but, I'm really glad I didn't. I think this guy is spot-on. We need to quit finger pointing and labeling. We are ALL in this together. I would like to be part of the solution as opposed to part of the problem. Thank you for sharing this video.

Thanks for posting this Craig! very much worth watching and sharing....

hope you won't mind a related quote .....
"We habitually erect a barrier called blame that keeps us from communicating genuinely with others, and we fortify it with our concepts of who's right and who's wrong. We do that with the people who are closest to us and we do it with political systems, with all kinds of things that we don't like about our associates or our society. It is a very common, ancient, well-perfected device for trying to feel better. Blame others. Blaming is a way to protect your heart, trying to protect what is soft and open and tender in yourself. Rather than own that pain, we scramble to find some comfortable ground." pema chodron

I was glad to see that so many people had commented on this thread when I woke up this morning. Hugo has a lot of really insightful and motivating work. I highly recommend folks looking at his Youtube channel and also searching for his work on bandcamp

Yes, my master! Here is the tiny ad you asked for:
