    The World Is Flat_tened.

    So many people don't see deeply into how our capitalism and consumer culture affect other areas of the world.

    It's like Terry Pratchett's DiscWorld magic rule. Any time magic is used, a reaction to it must happen elsewhere in the world.

    For every action, there is an equal an opposite reaction.
    For every opulence, equal and opposite poverty.
    For every indulgence, equal and opposite punishment.

    Too bad the shit on the end of the stick is proverbial and can't be used to grow wheat.

    Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal. - Martin Luther King, Jr.
