What's Cooking at Our House: Tacos

Assemble-your-own tacos.


Since A healthy home-cooked family meal and a home garden are revolutionary acts, the revolution starts at home. Revolutionary acts resist and subvert cartel-state marketing/brainwashing; revolution never tasted so good.

For your review: assemble-your-own tacos. The tortillas were store-bought, but the frijoles, red pepper sauce and two green salsas were home-made.


The menu:

Local (Sonoma County Calif.) goat cheese in a Camembert style, with crackers 
Clausthaler non-alcoholic amber ale and Mexican beer

Taco ingredients, assembled to taste:
-- crumbled feta cheese
-- thin-sliced romaine lettuce
-- diced fresh tomatoes
-- home-made red sauce (California chiles)
-- home-made green chile salsa (mild and hot)
-- home-made frijoles (beans)
-- sliced olives
-- cilantro
-- home-made guacamole

An electric pan on the table enabled heating the tortillas as needed.

The red chile salsa recipe (page 46) is from Jacqueline Higuera McMahan's California Rancho Cooking: Mexican and Californian Recipes



Things are falling apart--that is obvious. But why are they falling apart? The reasons are complex and global. Our economy and society have structural problems that cannot be solved by adding debt to debt. We are becoming poorer, not just from financial over-reach, but from fundamental forces that are not easy to identify or understand. We will cover the five core reasons why things are falling apart:

go to print edition1. Debt and financialization
2. Crony capitalism and the elimination of accountability
3. Diminishing returns
4. Centralization
5. Technological, financial and demographic changes in our economy

Complex systems weakened by diminishing returns collapse under their own weight and are replaced by systems that are simpler, faster and affordable. If we cling to the old ways, our system will disintegrate. If we want sustainable prosperity rather than collapse, we must embrace a new model that is Decentralized, Adaptive, Transparent and Accountable (DATA).

We are not powerless. Not accepting responsibility and being powerless are two sides of the same coin: once we accept responsibility, we become powerful.
