Perhaps some insight as to what the 'once great idea that was Broken Sidewalk Farm' was would be helpful here? I take it that it was/is an organic
farm CSA (community shared agriculture)? In the above, who's attitude is the wrong one when trying to save the world, the 'gentleman' in the video
or those who supposedly supported his efforts? If indeed my assumption is correct and Broken Sidewalk Farm is a CSA, there are many organizations out
there to assist CSA farmers in a number of areas.
Can't say im surprised, the group of people that protest the use of non-organics are the same group that do not really want to do anything.
When push comes to shove the mass amount of people that support things like broken sidewalk farm don't support it at all. They depend heavily on a
dedicated few and in this case a dedicated one. Action and change come about through action and change, nothing gets done by complaining online and
waiving a sign around.
I cannot say I am surprised either if the attitude displayed in the referenced video is typical of his every day interactions with the people who have
pledged to assist him or support him in any way. To be honest, if this is the way he behaves typically, I would walk away as well. We all get
knocked down in the dust from time to time, sure bellyache about it to a degree but eventually there comes a time when you have to pull yourself up by
the boot straps, dust yourself off, give the finger to whatever it is that knocked you down, dig in and try harder. If it is something you really
really want... there IS a way to get it accomplished. Playing the victim and whining about it over and over like a broken record however, is not a
way to get anything accomplished and indeed is counter-productive
So let this be a lesson to all you survivalists out there, depend on nobody.
Bull hockey. Depend on yourself, most certainly. However, you have to surround yourself with people that over the course of time have proven their
worth and dependablity and display an honest intent on being an active member of a cause or project of yours or the 'group'. Lip service does
little to impress me, however, if in the course of time someone demonstrates time and again their honest interest and lends help when needed... that
Sounds to me as if perhaps he has surrounded himself with imitators rather than doers. Maybe it's time for him to do an honest evaluation on the
situation and change not only HIS attitude, but in general his tactics. I am sure that if he did that Broken Sidewalk Farm would do well rather than
