Most people feel on the outside of extreme wealth. Some aspire to it. Many are offended by it and consider it immoral—even evil. For most of us it’s a sideshow. But Chuck Collins, our guest today, says, “No! It’s not a sideshow. It’s the main show. It affects all of us.” We pay the taxes that build what everyone uses. They avoid taxes, sometimes paying none, taking no responsibility for the common good though they benefit from it.
Podcasting is an important component in the educational work of OneEarth Living. Each month we interview someone who works with alternatives to MultiEarth living and shows ways for us to deepen our commitment to compassionate, essential OneEarth living. In the 2020s, we all need to be training one another in the more radical changes that Earth is requiring of us to keep the planet livable. The episodes are created in collaboration with Simple Living Works, hence the name Simpler OneEarth Living. Gerald Iversen and Lee Van Ham are co-hosts.
Before we called our podcasting Simpler OneEarth Living Podcast, we called it The Common Good Podcast.
