Brook Trout

I took a short break at lunchtime on Friday and caught up with some friendly Brook Trout. Here’s one of my favourite photos. Click on the photo to enlarge.

    Why personal change does not equal political change
    by Derrick Jensen

    WOULD ANY SANE PERSON think dumpster diving would have stopped Hitler, or that composting would have ended slavery or brought about the eight-hour workday, or that chopping wood and carrying water would have gotten people out of Tsarist prisons, or that dancing naked around a fire would have helped put in place the Voting Rights Act of 1957 or the Civil Rights Act of 1964? Then why now, with all the world at stake, do so many people retreat into these entirely personal “solutions”?

    I want to be clear. I’m not saying we shouldn’t live simply. I live reasonably simply myself, but I don’t pretend that not buying much (or not driving much, or not having kids) is a powerful political act, or that it’s deeply revolutionary. It’s not. Personal change doesn’t equal social change.

  2. Thanks for the link Eva, and it is true that personal change does not equal social change, particularly when it still involves a fully consumerist lifestyle.

    By the way, the lettuce is still awesome, the basil is great, the squash are doing very nicely and we are happy to be eating vegetables almost exclusively from the garden in the middle of July!
