The 'Right to Repair' Movement Is Being Led by Farmers

Green (Living) Review

The right to repair movement is an effort to loosen laws to allow consumers to be able to fix technology without sending it back to the original manufacturer. Farmers are pushing back against legislation that prevents them from fixing their own equipment. If successful, it will be a huge victory for consumers. A major national group has adopted a policy to fight for the right to repair electronics, but it might not be the one you'd expect: farmers.

Has the “Me Too” Movement Gone too Far?

When we, as Progressives, have reached a point where our righteous indignation about everything has gotten us to a place where someone as benign as Garrison Keillor isn't safe, we have become.well, extremists.

The Transition Movement and the Working Class

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Attracting the working class Transition Towns and the Transition Movement as a whole suffer from an image problem in that the ordinary man and woman in the street seem to see it as something only for the better of middle and upper classes; for those “who can afford it”, and those in predominately rural settings. The Green Movement and the Transition Movement have so far, in the main, been unable to touch the working class and this must change.
