Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

As the old expresion says "You cannot see the forest for the trees ", so we also cannot see all existing problems in our society.

But if you live further out, far from the certain forest of probles you can get a wh*** picture and see the shape and the size of the forest. So in order to solve certain problem, firstly, you will have to go away from it!!, And then to choose wisely the right tool to cut trough the dense bushes to reach it.

Anyway, apart from the poetical ways of aproaching the problems, I suggest that before the start of any change or project, the opinion of very people who will be most important part of any project, should be considered.

Listening the people and asking them what do they feel like about certain things, or what do they need the most is the basic start for future combining of native way of life with new technologies and all other wonders of the present world.

For me the most important secret is to "talk to the people who have the problem – and LISTEN to what they have to say".

I am am not talking about Africa only, but also about other regions on Earth where people really need urgent help.

One could say that every individual has certain problems, and to him or her this is a bigest problem, much bigger an more severe than problems of any other person. This is biased, one-sided world and the problems of others are commonly les important then "ours" and when talking about Africa and it¨s people, you would not even receive a proper answer but only empty expresion "but, what can I do..!"..

We must listen to the people, try to see the reality trough their eyes and then, at least, try to imagine, what would the world of their dreams be like. And of course these are not some utopian ideas, but simple suggestions how to start in making just a little progress towards brighter and safer future.

Simple changes in everyday life will in time lead to bigger changes in consciousness of those people and then after initial help that part of the world will show its potential, and certanly be the source of inspiration for future generations.

Cheers!! ;)

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle.

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
