Think of Making Business Come to You


My headline is speculative but suggestive
It suggests we - workers - creators - skilled ones - etc.
could turn the tables on the entire control
KochWorld now exerts over everyone
Simply insist we work where we live
The employer must locate 
a portion of business where we are
or we work remotely from home 
or a nearby workplace away from our private space
More and more of us
will prefer an urban car-free environment 
(where vehicles are limited to the periphery)
with everything is within walking or jogging distance
It will become cheaper and vastly more integral
to work remotely 
It beats living in a sprawl-burb
having cars for every member of the family
and commuting your life away
If you want to think of a new economy
where workers actually have some leverage
think of creating a union of all workers
who insist on working remotely
Think of making business come to you

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …
