P. GREANVILLE—If you don’t know or never heard about Claudia Stauber, well, you’ve been missing something, pardner. A Vermonter, and dedicated ecoanimal defender, Claudia is a 100% woke activist who hosts Cabin Talk, one of the most refreshing political/public affairs shows around. This is citizens’ journalism as it should be: no frills, spontaneous, righteous, fierce and intelligent. And 100% honest. All of it delivered by a woman who is obviously beautiful inside and out. A former Sandernista, Claudia has not attained (yet) the visibility of a Jimmy Dore, another rare and forceful truthtalker, but she’s obviously of the same political DNA.

Russell Brand can be loud, abrasive, and certainly sometimes naive about his visions, likes and dislikes, (he’s still learning, or “awakening” as he might put it), but overall his heart and very fine mind are on the right track, and he’s using his celebrity to question the status quo. In that regard, especially when we consider the sheer number of decadent celebrities out there, doing fuckall for the world, he’s pretty unique. Quite often he’s also fulminatingly lucid and spot on. Hardly a blushing violet, he says things that desperately need to be said at the top of his lungs. More power to him.

JEFF J. BROWN—There is a great allegorical story about Confucius, Laozi – who was the founder of Daoism – and Buddha gathering around a vat of vinegar to taste it. Confucius and Laozi actually met and spent some time together in the 6th-5th century BC. Buddhism did not make it to China until the 1st century AD, but other than the latter’s concept of reincarnation, the three philosophies have much in common and all are looming large over the problems happening in Hong Kong recently.

PATRICE GREANVILLE—After all, this may be (we hope) the end of animal agriculture as we know it, which has been at it for well over 10,000 years, having grown lethally and exponentially with the arrival of CAFOS (factory farms) in the 20th century, spearheaded by assembly line techniques borrowed from America’s first wave of industrialisation. Animal agriculture in the US and woldwide now contributes as much if not more greenhouse gases—especially methane— than all hydrocarbon-fueled vehicles on earth.
