A Psychedelic Spin On 'National Security' 20.6.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Cross-posted from TomDispatch.com It’s the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love. What better place to celebrate than that fabled era’s epicenter, San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, where the DeYoung Museum has mounted a dazzling exhibition , chock full of rock music, light shows, posters, and fashions from the mind-bending summer of 1967? If you tour the exhibit, you might come away thinking that the political concerns of the time were no more than parenthetical bookends to that summer’s real action, its psychedelic counterculture. Only the first and last rooms of the large show are explicitly devoted to political memorabilia. The main body of the exhibit seems devoid of them, which fits well with the story told in so many history books. The hippies of that era, so it’s often claimed, paid scant attention to political matters. Take another moment in the presence of all the artifacts of that psychedelic summer, though, and a powerful (if implicit) political message actually comes through, one that ...

Want to Get "Back to the Land"? You're Not Alone 14.6.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Over the past century, generations of young people have turned their backs on city life to embrace small-scale farming and back-to-the-land ideals. The exact circumstances for each generation's return have varied: the Great Depression in the 1930s, the Vietnam War in the '60s and '70s, and, more recently, the loss of ecosystems and biodiversity to industrial agriculture and climate change. Each generation has had one common desire: to live a more honest, ethical life of self-sufficiency and oneness with nature. Young farmers today face serious structural obstacles: access to affordable land, a steep (and often self-financed) learning curve, debilitating student loans, and lack of access to health care. But three back-to-the-land farmers managed to succeed in a fickle vocation that seems to demand equal parts skill, determination, and luck. What choices did they make, and are their experiences instructive for struggling young farmers today? Jean-Martin Fortier: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants In the ...

Businesses can give interns a chance to shine -- or whine 13.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
New York • Fresh face or long face? Which one you see on interns at small businesses may depend on whether the boss gives them a chance to shine or do only menial tasks.
