AN ORDINANCE OF POSSESSION by Tony Mancus

~~~~~~~~~~

We, humans, remain animal however distantly removed we think we are from the ground/water we use and use and our sense of control over natural processes is astounding. A one-way route of distribution ending in piles and piles of wealth and nominal possession doesn’t make for a sustainable form of existence. I am you here and we are invested in everything out there. All of it.  But it surely isn’t ours. The resources we consume and redistribute as our possessions, what many feel are things that are rightfully theirs, need to be re-envisioned. Hopefully out of this mess we can find a way to move forward.
