The transition to sacred economy is part
of a larger shift in our ways of thinking, relating, and being. Economic logic

We are on the brink of an
apocalypse that some have prophesied will result in a radical shift in how we

threat of poverty, one must work for money, even if that
work is destructive. And money is about power backed up
by arms and prisons. Poverty, power, and prison are money's soul, flesh, and
Economic abstractions keep
functioning only so long as actual goods and services exist to be bought and

once filled, and the whole structure tumbles to the ground.
