Green Party Calfiornia Anniversary

It has been 20 years since the Green Party of California was founded in Berkeley and 25 years since Charlene Spretnak and Fritjof Capra published "Green Politics". This coming weekend, Greens will gather again in Berkeley to celebrate the occasion.

I wish that I could be there to listen to Spretnak, or at least catch her via video. It should be interesting to hear what she thinks of the current state of affairs and what might she think of the Global Promise today.

Maybe I'll ask her what she thinks of this book that
I stumbled on at the library. It looks promising:
"Green Politics is Eutopian" by Paul Gilk, published last year.

Paul Gilk is an independent intellectual who lives in the woods of northern Wisconsin. A long practitioner of "voluntary poverty", he chose a life of deliberate retreat by building and living in a small cabin for nearly twenty years before reconstructing a nineteenth-century log house, both homes without electricity or running water.

He also acknowledges some Wisconsin Green Party members in the book.
