Consumption illness and the emerging worldwide health pandemic

Unhealthy relationship models between producers and consumers have a tragic effects on society and the environment. What we are really suffering from is consumption illness.

"I live in Southern California with my life partner Jenni, and I have three amazing daughters. I am a simple person, who as a boy, ran around barefoot on a dirt-road in Alabama — dreaming of being a writer. I am probably best known as a writer of pithy sayings and small, simple aphorisms which have found their way into tens-of-thousands of publications, including by some of the biggest publishers in the world. I love to inspire people and show them their inner-beauty. I see the world spiritually. My mission is to cause people to consider kinder ways in which we could do business, structure our relationships and treat the world." Bio
