NEW ESSAY: Beyond Cynicism: America Fumbles Towards Kafka’s Castle

JHK has a new essay in the Dec issue of American Conservative magazine:

That debacle was only one manifestation of an array of accumulating threats to the postmodern order, which include the burdens of empire, onerous debt, population overshoot, fracturing globalism, worries about energy, disruptive technologies, ecological havoc, and the specter of climate change.”

My Garden > The Garden 2015 – 2016

I kind of let the garden report slide for a couple of years. Apologies. Below is where things stood on Christmas Eve 2015.
