We have Actual Reality and we have a lot of Virtual Reality in this episode too...We have to know the difference...We live in a highly mediated mindscape, with the immersion in corporate marketing the fundamentalist ritual practice of ordinary living in America.
In our Earth Riot this week our show of the Actual is a preaching by Bertha Lewis in the year of Occupy Wall Street. She addresses the "Church of Stop Shopping" during the struggle to keep Walmart out of New York City. That effort to keep the slayer of neighborhoods out of the city did succeed, and Bertha's activist was a crucial driver of that resistance. And isn't Bertha hilarious?
