The utter generosity of the poor humbles us. They give rice to every mendicant even when their rice is getting over. That is what needs to be understood - their greatnes and their richness. That is what they are defined by. That they are impoverished is what defines us.
We are the cause of that poverty - and the onus is on us to share deeply and completely. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
all those trained in modern techniques - of extracting petroleum, of
making plastics, of building dams and submerging forests, of mining
metals and destroying farmlands, of making videos and distancing people
... go to villages. Unlearn. And then Learn. There is still knowlege and wisdom and skills there.
Sustainable skills that may yet save the planet. Sustainable communities that may yet save the soul.
