Monday Mayhem: Local, Organic Government


In an ongoing series called "Monday Mayhem," radio host with a pragmatic view of tackling the challenges of energy, food, and the local economy at the end of the age of oil goes head-to-head with a radio host who promotes free-market solutions. In this edition, Carl Etnier and Rob Roper discuss what it looks like to apply the principles of local, organic food to the functions of government. The call-in show takes up both Vermont and national issues.

Editorial Notes: From Carl Etnier: Rob Roper and I are both convinced that the best solutions for our problems will be found through open-minded discussions from people willing to listen to each other. We often represent different ideological perspectives, and we look for areas of agreement while trying to explore areas of disagreement. And we get far more calls for these joint shows than usual!
