The purpose of Mr. Dickie's Blog is to provide a place where I can post quotations I like and write about things that are on my mind. As of the summer of 2011 I have NetworkedBlogs posting a link to this blog to Facebook.
There is a great deal to be done. At present, overproduction and over-consumption of nonessential Things, especially in the West, is leading to the destruction of the world's resources and habitats. Meanwhile, both between and within cultures, enormous material inequalities exist, resulting in conflicts in [and between] many countries. If we are to begin to change the Thing habits that have created these problems, we must first change our attitudes about Things, especially about the ownership of excess Things.

I have been retired from the U.S. government for many years. I was a long time paying member of AOL until May 2009. Until October 2008 I had a fairly extensive genealogy website on AOL. They dropped support.
