The classist-ism is a false perception about me from my driving a “1987 car.” It’s true. For over twenty years, after purchasing my 1987 chevy sprint from a friend of mine, after he passed on from diabetes 14 years ago, it has been my passion to practice zen and the art of ‘a 35-mile-per-gallon car’ maintenance to set an appropriate behavior to others, in this, the Sixth Great Extinction, in this, the Anthropogenic Era of Big Oil seeing our demise as a species and society.
There is an eco-ethical mindfulness about maintaining a “1987 car” missing in those opting to perpetuate Big Oil and unsustainable consumerism with what model/year car 99% subscribe to. 1987 was the official year of Reagan’s regime ending all pretense of Johnson’s war on poverty and upward social mobility through hard work and further advanced degrees. That’s the result of tax cuts to the rich. Corporate welfare and class stratification. Wealth disparity not seen since the Pharaohs. All car manufacturing and operation are part of a long list of consumerist extinction protocols. To stop big auto and big oil, everyone stop buying new cars! Transit in masse or retrofit your existing car to electric. Or trade in for a used electric. Sustainable and resilient economies must divest everything oil now!
‘who the heck is the other guy?’ Thanks for asking.
We are on the ballot, this the fourth run for California Legislative Office in a row, and the sixth overall. Green Party of Los Angeles County endorsed our senate run. My republican opponent lost his Los Angeles neighborhood council seat bid. This augers well in our independent (no party preference) effort for placing ourselves in June 3rd’s top two election. We were credited with 22% of the electorate voting for us in 2010’s November election.
– Elected city of Los Angeles neighborhood councilmember public official in Arleta, Panorama City and appointed to Valley Glen. Pending to be elected to my fourth neighborhood council in Nprth Hollywood Northeast.

Candidate, California’s 39th Assembly District, Architect · August 2011 to July 2012
Green Party Nominee.
Of Greens in line to win partisan elected office after decades of building the wider constituent base driving that election – In our Heroic Working Class Communities – we are pitted against the democrat who dissuades anyone to run against him, who is under 24 indictments of voter fraud and perjury, or the equally corrupted chief Legislative aide to the ‘most corrupt Legislator in California’ now termed out – where our electoral effort is building on 2010’s 22% (in a one-on-one rematch against an incumbent, corrupt democrat – we tripled our 2008 8.1%). Jack Lindblad is a proven community leader who pledges, with a staff of community legislative deputies to “fight until every person in the district who needs a job can get one, recapture our position as a world-class public education system, and make our region sustainable: in water, energy and improving our air quality.”

Having demonstrated against Nixon’s expansion of the criminal war in Vietnam into Cambodia in 1972 and having worked on Paolo Soleri’s arcology prototype Arcosanti in 1973 and 1974, while working on my Bachelor of Environmental Design at the University of Washington has carried my work in my chosen profession of practicing architecture + ecology +urban planning into activism for social, economic and environmental justice. Borne of becoming expert in these disciplines, my realization emerged of human society’s dire need to transform behaviorally as a species with frugality, elegance, humanity and compassion 50 to 100 years ago to avoid today’s worsening environmental collapse, of this, the Sixth Great Extinction of this, the Anthropogenic Era, to survive as a civilization.
By the fraction of 1% of humans who control the 99% of us, their corporate governance has violently refused to cede their profiteering, monetizing and control of our lives to a resilient and sustainable steady-state 100% renewable energy economy, so our toolkit has been narrowed from climate mitigation to adaptation and ever-vanishing regions capable of revitalization. We find ourselves now in the midst of an inexorable climate warming unseen for 60 million years that has a locked-in shredding of societal frameworks such as the broken governance and the loss of democracy we experience today.
