The Thoughts We Cannot Think: Sharon Astyk
Sharon Astyk is a farmer and blogger, eloquent beyond measure, and should be read by all. Her latest piece captures perfectly the dissonance between the business as usual crowd (which, by the by, includes most of us) and the newly emerging way of doing things, which of course will change everyone's life, for better or worse. If you thought reading and thinking about peak oil and then going out into suburban America produced some dissonance, check out the economic scene, where pronouncements from high officials and financial pornography sites like CNBC are contrasted with the realism of, for example, The Automatic Earth.
