Be that as it may, and although we're tempted to start a lengthy discourse on how is it possible to have "economic recovery" when jobs are disappearing left and right, and even the phony "official" unemployment rate is rising, here's the "short list" of what we've been doing to try and wake up the powers-that-be to some sense of reality and responsibility:
• We sent out letters to Reinhard Cardinal Marx of Munich and Freising and Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin drawing their attention to the potential of Capital Homesteading as a possible solution to the latest European debt crisis.Those are the happenings for this week, at least that we know about. If you have an accomplishment that you think should be listed, send us a note about it at mgreaney [at] cesj [dot] org, and we'll see that it gets into the next "issue." If you have a short (250-400 word) comment on a specific posting, please enter your comments in the blog — do not send them to us to post for you. All comments are moderated anyway, so we'll see it before it goes up.
• Mr. Pollant Mpofu of London has sent letters and e-mails to key political figures in Éire and the U.K. in an effort to present them with the possibilities inherent in Capital Homesteading.
• Mr. Mpofu is currently working to meet with a number of ambassadors of African countries to communicate the potential of Capital Homesteading to their respective heads of state.
• Mr. Guy Stevenson of Iowa has been sending links to postings from this blog around to his network, stirring up a great deal of discussion and interest in the Just Third Way.
• This morning we sent, via Mr. Mpofu, a letter to Mr. Jimmy Kelly, Irish Regional Secretary of Unite, a trade union in Éire and the U.K., suggesting an initiative to push for Capital Homesteading as an alternative to the union's call for a national strike.
• As of this morning, we have had visitors from 59 different countries and 50 states and provinces in the United States and Canada to this blog over the past two months. Most visitors are from the United States, the UK, Brazil, Canada, and India. People in Japan, the United States, Pakistan, Argentina and Venezuela spent the most average time on the blog. The most popular posting remains Norman Kurland's tribute to Robert P. Woodman, followed by "Keynesian Economics is Socialism Lite," "Thomas Hobbes on Private Property," "Preventable Disasters" about the Irish crisis, and Aristotle on private property.
