The Great American Dirtbag

“The world has enough for man’s need, but not enough for man’s greed.”
-Gandhi




Where do we look for hope, for America, the planet, for the human race? The dirtbags. They have usually descended from the Middle Class, where they had enough material-wise where their bodies could be content, but not their souls. Their souls were driven to live, so much, in fact that they gave up all conventional Middle Class ways of survival. Instead embracing another way, the way of the dirtbag. A way, if the entire world lived in this fashion, we could be saved. We could be saved because the spirits of mankind could be fed. When the spirit is fed greed disappears, and without greed there is enough for everyone on the planet.

great quote Luke...err Cliff. Couldn't agree with you more. The quiet moments on the mountain, at the crag or in the field have always held special, sustaining meaning to me. More so than any validation expressed through conventional sources- school, work...etc. Keep on spreading the word brother!
peace and happy holidays! -MR
