Money is NOT the measure of all things

I was just reading about Health Canada taking an ADHD med off the market at Bellaciao. I had just read last night in E.F. Schumacher’s "Small is Beautiful: Economics as if People Mattered" that we have GOT to get a grip on the economic "matrix" where growers can’t afford to GROW organically but they are happy if they can BUY organic. What’s up with that?

This whole business paradigm we’ve been forced to live under HAS GOT TO CHANGE! Money/profit is NOT the measure of all things and we’d better start taking LIFE seriously as IRREPLACEABLE and start treating it like the bona fide miracle it is.

Along with the lawyers, we need to shoot the Scrooges of the world who have lost their heart and believe only in ideology. These people are insane, because the final arbiter of moral truth is the human heart and our capacity for compassion, not on imposing a false god on people.
