I found a strange package at my door the other day. When I opened it up I remembered that it’s promotion time for Catalyst Conference. The huge tin contained a noise maker toy, a bendie toy thing, a promo DVD, and tons of posters. My eight-year-old son loves it.
All the time, I get invited to speak at conferences on simple living, and I’m offered nice honorariums to do it! People write books on simplicity and make lots of money. It’s a weird thing…There is nothing more sickening than talking about poverty over a fancy dinner. Or how about this one: I once saw an advertisement for a dialogue on global starvation, and the sign boldly read, “Refreshments will be served.” (The Irresistible Revolution)
