Go ahead sharing your precious thoughts. I very much appreciate it. I would disagree, however, that people living their own lives in a somewhat more holistic fashion is exactly what it needs. One after the other turning their heads from what's already provided to explore what it is they themselves could personally provide for all of us. It's a slow learning process about each and everyone's individual trades and offers, or isn't it? I'd take those people you mentioned as role models or pioneers.
Something else: I love the picture, scene, and setting. Looks like a place where I could hang out for hours, discussing society over some big fat doobies and some exquisite tunes. :) Chill on, dude!
