Critical American History

In light of the recent stirrings about Critical Race Theory, I recommend a video series “American Oligarchy.” I watched it on Free Speech TV and it’s available on-line at

I loved the earlier focus of Simple Living and am dissapointed in the blatant politization of this material.  I have stepped away from the site for awhile and hardly recognize it as the same publication. I do not support or endorse your views. Please remove me from your distribution list.

This reader may have confused Voluntary Simplicity with “10 Tips to Unclutter Your Closet.” SLW! has for over 20 years been guided by the Five Life Standards of “Living More with Less,” the classic by Mennonite Doris Janssen Longacre. “Do Justice; Learn from the World Community; Cherish Natural Order; Nourish People (not Stuff); and Non-Conform Freely” are highly political! If you are put off by one of our blogs or podcasts, please review these Standards. We have expounded on them in text and audio at http://simpleliving.startlogic.com/indexoth.php?place=archivesThemes.php#lmwl.

CAUTION—CONTROVERSIAL SUBJECT!

We may need to consider the possibility that the ever mutating pandemic is one way that Mother Earth is righting a natural imbalance. 

Let’s consider several premises:

That humans are part of Nature, not the rulers of Nature, that all animals and plants are interdependent. Most creatures have natural predators—animals that eat other animals or plants. 

The Earth is in Overshoot. We have more humans than the Earth can support. Some call it Overpopulation. This is a very controversial. The pro-natalists, those who want a higher birth-rate, are driven primarily by pro-growth economics, which just sends us further into Overshoot.

We can survive well with a steady-state economy—one that does not grow—and a reduced population.

We needn’t use coercion to stabilize population. When talking about a smaller global population, pro-natalists use negative examples such as China’s One Child policy or racial superiority. Population can be reduced to a sustainable level using female education and comprehensive family planning. This applies mainly in the Southern Hemisphere.

The Northern Hemisphere must be concerned primarily about restraining OverConsumption—using no more than our fair share of the Earth’s resources. This has been the primary thrust of Simple Living Works! and its predecessors for almost 40 years! We’ve come to the conclusion it’s easier to change human’s reproduction than consumption!

I could go on but I’ll return to the main idea—the pandemic may be a way of the Earth bringing life into balance. Not God, not malevolent scientists, not terrorists.

I’m not suggesting that the Earth makes human-style intellectual decisions and then acts. The Earth is a interconnected, interdependent set of systems that interact to bring change.

We can cooperate in this effort by: 1. Accepting a decline in population and not trying to replace those who have died; 2. Supporting female education and family planning; 3. Bringing our consumption into control so that more humans have an equal share. 

We are not telling women how many children they can have. We are trying to help free them to make their own decisions for their own lives, health and family, not to please their husband, extended family or community.

IT’S NOT OVER YET: A PRA WEBINAR SERIES

In the wake of four years of far-right populist governance culminating in a violent insurrection, Political Research Associates (PRA), publisher of Religion Dispatches, is holding steady in the knowledge, informed by 40 years of Fight the Right research, that it’s not over yet.

PRA is taking this moment to evaluate the state of the Right as it enters into opposition and, at times, into partnership with the new centrist administration. AND STAY TUNED! PRA and RD are working on a joint webinar series on the “Christian” Right to be announced soon.

IT’S NOT OVER YET: A PRA WEBINAR SERIES

In the wake of four years of far-right populist governance culminating in a violent insurrection, Political Research Associates (PRA), publisher of Religion Dispatches, is holding steady in the knowledge, informed by 40 years of Fight the Right research, that it’s not over yet.

PRA is taking this moment to evaluate the state of the Right as it enters into opposition and, at times, into partnership with the new centrist administration with a five-part Spring/Summer 2021 Webinar Series. Webinars will be held every second Thursday from March through July.

AND STAY TUNED!
PRA and RD are working on a joint webinar series on the Christian Right to be announced soon.

Mobilizing for Reproductive Freedom in the Battle Over Bodily Sovereignty
Thursday, July 8 at 4pm ET  |  Register Here
Under the perceived threat of a Democratic administration stymieing the war of attrition against reproductive rights, the anti-abortion movement continues to strategize for a post-Roe future. From the growth of the abortion abolitionist movement to the anti-abortion agenda of armed paramilitaries, the battle over bodily sovereignty continues. Join us for a conversation of experts on the anti-abortion movement and practitioners committed to building access to reproductive care as we take stock of this current moment in the struggle for reproductive freedom.

ReTrumplicans Wage War on Democracy

Voter Suppression in effect in Georgia, Florida and Texas. Similar laws in legislatures in multiple other “red” states. How do pro-democracy Progressives pro-act? Non-cooperation! Refuse to do business, vacation or attend events in these states, and tell the ReTrumplicans there–governors, legislators, county chairs–the effects of their actions. Money is the language they understand.

The January 6th insurrection was one way to try to overthrow democracy. Now, a more sophisticated effort to subvert democracy is underway.

Precarity: The American Way
Thursday, June 10 at 4pm ET  |  Register Here
The myth of American Exceptionalism is well-understood to be just that, a myth. But the pandemic-induced national recession has thrown into high relief the true American Exceptionalism: life lived in a constant state of precarity. Precarity propelled by low-wage labor, the gig economy, unattainable rent, ruinous medical debt, and privatized education, all cast against a background of a crumbling welfare state. Join us as we explore the interactions of economic policy and big capital as it maps onto race and gender in the United States and the strategies of social justice movements building an alternative vision for political economy.

  • SLW! Bonus Podcast — Derek & Nancy Casady of The Climate Mobilization Confront Climate Crises (co-released with The Common Good Podcast)//
  • Our Simpler Living Daily Nudges for Jan. (Life Standards of Voluntary Simplicity)//
  • 10 Tips for a Simpler, More Meaningful Easter #1. Plan ahead. Instead of going on auto-pilot, hold a family meeting to decide what the group really wants to do and who’s going to do what. Observe Lent for 40 days before Easter, possibly with a study/action/prayer guide or calendar, such as ‘Who’s Risen from the Dead, Anyway?’ and Worship Alternatives: Lent, Holy Week, Easter. Lent begins on Ash Wed., Feb. 14 (also Valentine’s Day!).
  • Simpler Formats for 2018SLW! Weekly Digest will be discontinued and the SLW! Podcast will be reduced to one episode per month, issued on the 15th. The complete SLW! Monthly Digest on the SLW! site will continue to feature the latest posts from colleague organizations and will be updated weekly. Simpler Living Weekly Nudge will feature offerings from SLW! It comes as your free subscription to  SLW! Blog.  The Daily Nudge comes by email (send NUDGE to SimpleLivingworks@yahoo.com) or by Twitter @GeraldIversen. Choose the options that work for you.
  • Subscribers to SLW! Podcast will receive The Common Good Podcast (TCGP)–which I produce and co-host–on the 1st of the month. Likewise, subscribers to TCGP will receive SLW! Podcast on the 15th as a BONUS. So, SLW! Podcast subscribers will continue to receive two episodes per month. This makes good sense since the missions of both SLW! and Jubilee OneEarth Economics are so complementary and the two work together closely. For example, I blog on the Jubilee site at CasaJubileo.org occasionally. Your comments on these changes are welcome.
