    “Colo” — from Proto-Indo-European: “to move, to turn (around).” In Latin, the verb evoked meanings that included “cultivate,” “inhabit,” “protect,” “nurture,” and “worship/honor.”
    *
    I use “colo” as the name of this series in order to assert the intersubjectivity of all beings. Other life forms (plants, animals, other humans) are not objects for our use; they are organisms with whom we are in relationship. These relationships should be built on reciprocity and respect. The highest manifestation of relationship is love, which advances mutual thriving. If we don’t love (or even know) the beings who feed us, and if we don’t nurture/cultivate/feed them in return, then eating becomes a superficial, sterile, commercial transaction that can’t possibly meet the deepest needs of anyone involved.

    Big thanks to Stephanie. She can’t even find it in her heart to recognize and thank those people that gave their lives so she could be free to mock this country and find nothing but fault with our culture.

    Yes and until we do like our ancient ancestors, with modern knowledge of ecology, we will wither on the vine as the planet continues to heat up and life become very rough.

    @Ms. Ima

    Where do you get that vegan and vegetarian brains are shrinking and red meat eaters aren’t? As we age our brains shrink if we don’t stop if from doing so.

    The balance of Socialism for human need, and Capitalism for growth and innovation is the only synthesis that has proven to work. Here, in Europe and other places. Having only one or the other is a disaster and also proven time-and-again.

    I gathered some poke weed (poke salat) from around the house today. Grows fine in Central FL. Eat what’s available.

    They have had their lives taken under false pretenses then the govt stabs them in the back after.
