This book provides a new understanding of ourselves, our families, and the world we live in. It is based on discoveries made at Dekalb Farmer’s Market over the past 25 years.
The information provided in this book represents a lifetime of work in understanding the cause of scarcity and suffering for human beings on this planet. It has been a heartfelt search for the root cause of it. Some say it is original sin, the devil, the desire for sex, money, and power. Some blame big government, dirty politics, big business, special interest groups; ethnic, cultural, and religious differences. Some say it is due to character flaws like hubris, selfishness, dishonesty, jealousy, infidelity. Men blame “women” and women blame “men”. You name it, we’ll blame it. We have many ways of rationalizing and avoiding responsibility for creating scarcity and suffering, because we feel it is endemic to the human experience. Our cultural, institutional, and economic lives are an adaptation to this assumed reality. To be human is to create scarcity and suffering, so it seems. It is as simple as that. Despite our best attempts to ameliorate this situation, it still exists, 10,000 generations later, in its most insidious and destructive forms yet.
