I've never been a huge fan of sunscreen, but as someone who does a lot of work outside and in the summer (and with no health insurance) so I've got to use it.

I'll probobly try out these recipes sometime if it means not supporting the chemical plants that they come out of.

In general, maybe a 3 or 4. Sure, there are things I hate but I try to keep them from becoming all encompassing to my daily experience. I just don't think I could handle that, and it would just lead to an inevitable void of nihilistic pessimism. Now, some things really get me angry, murders by cops, the homeless being harassed, starving children. I've just got to keep in compartmentalized till its time to act.

I didn't know Emma, and Leftous had left again. Sad news, but I wish them all the best.

I wish I had some suggestions on how to help the site but unfortunately I don't. Hopefully everything will work out for the best, Raddle is great and hopefully we will bounce back twice as strong!

Do hackers create the same unrest that could lead to revolution?

I think Hackers could certainly disrupt the systems that monetary capital is collected, transferred and enforced. They could attack banks, credit cards, collection agencies. However in regards to if they have the ability to the landscape in witch we see the people taking back their cities, towns and communities I don't think so.

I think they can help create a mindset within the people of revolution but at the end of the day it will be those who are out in the street where the people will see the most revolutionary action.

Interesting little idea, I knew the Green Party sometimes sepertae themselves between the Watermelons (Green on outside Red on inside) and the Avacados (Green on outside and in)

I would probobly describe myself as a mix between Dark Green and Bright Green for much the same reasons as you said Deep Ecology Ideas can be very anti-human. However I do belive that we do need to take our own personal steps to influence change at a greater level so I can't say I completely disavow Lifestylism in this regard.
