Our interests are tied up with forces we oppose but that has always been so

That we are all involved is an accepted cliche
That this involvement requires us to do some fancy extrication
is less evident
I can tell by the reception of my tweets
that I have a way to go
before I can show how our involvement in
sprawl society
places us squarely among those
whose economic lives 
intersect entirely with
the infamous Koch Brothers
whose motive includes our impoverishment
and the dilution of our values to next to nothing
When we oppose big oil we oppose part of ourselves
When we long for a new economy or a new society
we are merely at the first stage of extrication
from our captivity
The best thing is that we can now begin to see
all this
The next step is to start finding ways out
