new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

greece a dress rehearsal for the united states

i have long tried to provide links to posts on the financial crisis worldwide, most especially on my facebook page. i tend to concentrate more on the two countries with which i'm most familiar -- greece and the u.s.

the similarities in trends between these two countries is striking. many american friends echo 'same here' when i discuss the conditions in greece.

make no mistake -- we are trending towards private ownership of common resources... including the state. and that is the heart of fascism.

    The same trend is occurring in Australia too.  The Commonwealth Government already subsidises people to take our private health insurance (without any means testing).  The proportion of students in private schools has been increasing steadily for a generation.  Now one commentator argues that the state of NSW (the state with the largest population) is preparing to outsource its own secondary education system to private providers; see http://larvatusprodeo.net/2011/07/13/the-last-publicly-educated-generation/.
