Sometime back around 2012, I started to use the phrase “The New American Revolution” to refer to the local food-sovereignty movement. At the time, I knew of several farmers who had faced excessive government intrusion into their efforts to supply their customers with fresh local food, so the need for a “revolution” was and is real.
Recently, I have begun thinking of the “New American Revolution” in two additional areas as well: 1) household and community energy independence; and 2) the movement to dismantle systemic racism.
That’s all for the moment. Just a seed. I have just now moved my American Revolution flag to a more prominent location in my front yard.
Have you been feeling the need for a revolution? If so, are there any particular areas of life and “the system” that spark your revolutionary sentiments?
