"If you can control a people’s economy, you don’t need to worry about its politics; its politics have become irrelevant. If you control people’s choices as to whether or not they will work, and where they will work, and what they will do, and how well they will do it, and what they will eat and wear, and the genetic makeup of their crops and animals, and what they will do for amusement, then why should you worry about freedom of speech? In a totalitarian economy, any ‘political liberties’ that the people might retain would simply cease to matter."

The history was fascinating, and the religious pluralism it preached seemed to fit my world view.

But, let's get real. What we have here in Carpinteria's Valley of Marijuana is something akin to a large-scale techno ag industry, a venture more closely aligned with our industrial park, south of town off Mark Avenue.
