James, lol. where are you biking to next once you leave Charlotte?

 


Ryan, current plan is West Coast the southern route. Lots of cold, but I'm hoping that there won't be much snow and ice, or too many other dangerous storms, lots of West headwind some of which are extremely dangerous, but we'll manage I think. Khanh Dam is making some more miraculous improvements including increasing battery capacity by 30%, solar capacity by 30%, so I think at 40 miles a day even in the short winter months will have enough energy even for cooking and some stretches of bad weather. You will recall I carry a thousand watt generator, but those things are so dirty that I like to use that only in an emergency and I think his enhancements may make that possible. And as you may have seen in 2 hours he totally changed the seat arrangements so that I have an adjustable back which can be inclined much more forward and for me it's a absolute game changer. I'm almost certain. After 4 years, 40,000 miles, moving the elf is just like, well, ER, riding a bike. And as to the increased battery and solar, I want this rig  to be seen by the sun trip folks unless I decide somehow impossible, or inappropriate, or unkind. This is a really serious Bridge vehicle and I'd like them to see it, I'm even thinking of finding a way to not get in the way but do some or all of the trip unofficially and that could mean a hundred miles a day at 20 or 30 miles an hour and we might have enough capacity to do that now. We'll see.

Unless Greta Thunberg leads a Global hunger strike of people, led by the Young, to the death if necessary, for a Marshall Plan caliber to rescue some livable future for the children and grandchildren of all Humanity. If so, I'll do what I can to go join that day one.

A monkey wrench in some or all of this is after 70 years of incredibly faithful service by lungs are having a lot of problems. They seem to have developed a hypersensitivity to air pollution. Even when the reports are excellent air quality I spend two hours a day coughing up crud out of my lungs. Been going on for a couple of months now. Having a telemedicine call on Tuesday maybe will shed some light on it.

The thought of even a moment of socializing is torture for me. My world....

 The thought of even a moment of socializing is torture for me. My world is filled with unbearable suffering, Palestine, the hell world of your children and grandchildren, millions in prison, billions in poverty.... being separated by idle socializing for even a moment from fighting for those suffering is unbearable Agony to me. Always has been. I think it was the same for Jesus.

And Epiphany last night. The kingdom comes, of universal Brotherhood, as our actions build that. Only that in action makes the possibility of the Kingdom of universal Brotherhood on Earth concrete. Jesus understood this. World of hate has the material advantage of being concrete. LSGIABeing.com by any name is the only way to compete.

Hedges is our greatest living Prophet, as many times James has said. Tragically....

Hedges is our greatest living Prophet, as many times James has said. Tragically.... he is a little bit too addicted to his depression tho that is completely understandable. He is 1% wrong in this article, and that 1% is important. It is not without material hope. The Senate could be overturned. A general strike could force him out of office when Sanders wins. Greta could lead the world's children to hunger strike to death unless the world wakes up. No, seriously. Young children willing to die in the Civil Rights Movement were a decisive factor. And more importantly he is 100% wrong in concluding

The most important book regarding the features, nature, and development of morality in Western culture is this rauschenbusch routing Bush book, Christianity and the social crisis. He is unable to see entirely past the church but almost. It is extraordinarily insightful and helpful. It is so clear that it would unleash the Soul and Spirit and energies of a young Martin Luther King jr. As it did.

The most important book regarding the features, nature, and development of morality in Western culture is this rauschenbusch book, Christianity and the social crisis. He is unable to see entirely past the church but almost. It is extraordinarily insightful and helpful. It is so clear that it would unleash the Soul and Spirit and energies of a young Martin Luther King jr. As it did.

Breathtaking insights that I have seen nowhere else and are very useful and empowering for me.
The clarity that he provides at how laws are worse than useless and unsustainable unless they reflect a social morality that has already been established. He seems to think that that can only be established by a Christian Church which is so sad and patently ridiculous. But the process is absolutely correct and there is no greater failing on the part of the legal left than their wielding of laws to do what only the long-term work of sewing a new Morality In The Souls of men, revealing the Morality In The Souls of men, liberating it from the tyranny of head and flesh, can do.

Among the many gifts of reading this is this particular treasure for me. That the most joyful task is to unleash within ourselves and thereby plant in others the seeds of Joyful living for others, LSGIA being, with the certainty that it may take years or centuries to grow, if it grows at all. That's how it works. Let's get on with it.

And yes, yes, yes it is centuries and Aeons too late to save the human species or the  United States but it is not too late to save the quality of life of the poor souls that survived Downstream and to unleash the quality of life, to unlock it, among one or several of our fellow creatures today.
