Re: I think another powerful force ... is urbanization
I agree with most of the posts. We tend to lose ownership of our lives if we give in to the concept of global control. We can work towards stopping this trend by focusing on having more local control of resources in the areas that we live. We should work towards owning our on sources of food, clothing, housing, communication, energy, ect. The more we control in our own area, the less we have to dance to the beat of globilization at the downfall of our local community.
