Happy Interdependence Day!

Does the 4th of July bring out the rugged individualist in you? Are you filled with a patriotic fervor? Hell yeah! We’re independent and we’re proud! We can take care of ourselves an our own, on our own.

But think again…

Even if you are living in a survivalist camp where you grow all of your own food and stitch your own cloths ( less than 1% of u.S. population) where do your parts come from for your vehicles and tractors, or your ammunition?

Even if you used no vehicles, did all your farming with homemade tools and didn’t arm yourselves, you still depend on the rest of us to arrest global warming so that you can continue your lifestyle, and to control our population growth so we don’t overrun you.

Even if you walk to the local market where they buy their meat and produce locally…

We are all connected.
