Rhapsodies Privacy Matters

Calling on Congressman Mike Thompson to protect our civil liberties BY ANNA GIVENS

C

ongressman Thompson’s oath of office requires that he uphold and protect the Constitution, including the First, Fourth and Fifth amendments for a free press, privacy and due process. This sworn oath does not allow for exceptions in the case of Democratic Party leadership or due to presidential wishes that he do otherwise. In July, Thompson voted against Rep. Justin Amash’s amendment to an appropriations bill which would have barred mass surveillance programs like PRISM. Thompson’s vote was one of only 12 votes that prevented its passage. Along with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Thompson was one of only two Bay Area representatives voting against the amendment. Even after the recent revelations by the Washington Post of NSA violating privacy rules thousands of times each year, Thompson continues to support the NSA programs, saying in a statement on Aug. 16, “I do not believe protecting our citizens’ lives and civil liberties are mutually exclusive pursuits. Through aggressive oversight we can ensure our intelligence community can continue working to keep our country safe while respecting our citizens’ constitutional rights.” This telling statement came from Thompson after reports of thousands of rule violations by the NSA—“abuses” within the program, Thompson called them, adding that “we must act to make sure the abuses are not repeated.” But the NSA surveillance program itself is the problem. No amount of tinkering around the edges of a program in which the government targets the telephone records of journalists, vacuums up the phone-call records of hundreds of millions of Americans, captures and stores citizens’ emails and jettisons centuries-long principles of due process and habeas corpus can make this Big-Brother-on-steroids program fit within the protections afforded by our constitutionally guaranteed civil liberties of a free press, privacy and due process. If Thompson continues to disregard the provisions of the Bill of Rights meant to protect the precious civil liberties of his constituents, he will continue to be challenged.

All the Help We Can Get

Will Durst has a great line, “The Left circles the wagons and shoots inward.” Which is funny-but-true, and is exemplified in the snarky subtext on your most recent cover. Rachel Dovey’s article is excellent, by the way, and notably absent of snark. A big factor in the Left’s aforementioned self-defeatism is the perennial competition of “More Committed Than Thou,” in which there is always a new wave of alpha martyrs poised to rise up and break in righteous fury, now or never, sneering at the complacence and laziness of all others, including their allies. I know this game because I’ve participated in it, along with countless others. We absolutely need Bill McKibben and that screaming kid pictured on your cover, but we also need the very hybrid driving, recycling outcasts you deride, who make environmentalism “normal.” Don’t flip off your allies, kids, you may need someone to post bail.

More Syria Questions Interesting article, and some good points about Syria (“Rush to War,” Sept. 4). Also interesting that the liberal left and Sarah Palin essentially agree that the United States should not become more involved in this. While I understand the resistance to military action, it is clear that more discussion doesn’t get anywhere: we simply have to stop

assuming that everyone on the world thinks and reasons the same as we do. Our logic and arguments don’t work with many of the leaders in other countries. But military action generally includes innocent civilians (and children) who become “collateral damage,” which is little different than their killing by corrupt regimes. Clearly this is not an easy choice, and people will not agree on whatever outcome is finally implemented. Another sad result is that we will never know which option is the path to the quickest solution (end to the innocent deaths of people who happen to live in harms way). Do you believe that the rebels/resistance would massacre their own people and their own children with poison gas? Do you believe that lower-level military people in Assad’s forces have the ability to launch an attack without Assad’s knowledge? Do you believe that anyone else in the free world would assume the responsibility for responding to the situation other than the United States? If no one responded, what do you think would happen? These are not meant to be flippant questions, but to inspire serious longterm thought about our options. What alternatives are there that would engage all the parties in this fiasco?

Whistleblowing is a courageous act. Just ask Chelsea Manning, who faces a sentence of 35 years in prison for supplying classified information in the Wikileaks case, or Edward Snowden, who can’t even set foot in his home country after leaking information about the NSA’s widespread spying program. Daniel Ellsberg, who famously leaked the Pentagon Papers, speaks this week at the Petaluma Progressive Festival in support of the two courageous Americans, along with Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, author and activist Norman Solomon and many others.

Family Plot

MALT makes extra effort to preserve agriculture in open-space acquisitions BY BRUCE ROBINSON

T

he biggest threat to family farms in the North Bay isn’t urban sprawl, the rise of industrial agriculture or even climate change. It’s inheritance taxes. “Estate taxes can be crushing,” acknowledges Jamison Watts, executive director of the Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT). Because the tax code determines

the worth of inherited farmland based on its value for potential development rather than agricultural use, “heirs can be forced to sell just to pay the tax bills.” For the past 33 years, MALT has offered a buffer, buying up the development rights for 72 family ranches in West Marin—46,000 acres of dairy and ranchland that comprise roughly half of the privately owned farmland in the county.

Purchased at a cost that averages $1,500 per acre over the years, these conservation easements permanently prohibit subdividing or building new nonagricultural development on the farms. But with MALT’s more recent purchases costing up to $3,000 per acre, it was agreed that stronger measures were needed. The nonprofit’s response has been to begin incorporating a Mandatory Agriculture ) 10

Mimicking attempts by newspapers around the country to begin charging for online content, the Press Democrat implemented a long-rumored paywall on its website last week. Readers will now be able to access only 15 free articles per month, after which a nominal $10 per month “digital subscription” will be enforced. (Existing print subscribers receive online access at no additional charge.) The New York Times, which owned the Press Democrat for 27 years until 2012, has been successful with a similar system in place for about six years, while the San Francisco Chronicle recently abandoned its online paywall after only four months. Workarounds to the paywall include utilizing simple advanced Google searches and being savvy with social media links, but it appears the Press Democrat hopes $10 per month is worth saving the extra keystrokes.—Nicolas Grizzle The Bohemian started as The Paper in 1978.

Use provision in their new development-rights purchases. One of the first landowners to accept this additional restriction was Loren Poncia, a fourthgeneration beef and lamb rancher whose family already had a lengthy, supportive relationship with MALT. “What that says is, basically, no matter what we do with the property—if we sell it to an estate buyer, we sell it to somebody else down the road—it’s required on the title that agriculture is continued,” he explains. “We thought as a family, this is a great way to protect this ground and make sure that it stays productive in perpetuity. It might be vines or trees or row crops, but there will be agriculture there on that property forever.” It also helps keep young farmers on those lands, adds Watts. “It will make it more affordable, either for the heirs to keep owning it as the generations go forward, or having new agriculturalists come in and purchase the property.” While the Poncias were enthusiastic early adopters, others are more cautious. This approach is “a really personal decision” for property owners, notes Bill Keene, executive director of the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District. “A lot of people, their land is their biggest asset, and so restricting that is something that they think real hard about,” he explains. “It’s not that they’re opposed to agriculture so much as they want to make sure they leave their options open.” While there is usually some additional compensation for the landowner in the short term, Keene says these “affirmative agricultural easements” require taking a long view. “The market will change over time, and you have to think, not what’s happening today, but what might be happening 20, 30, 40, 50, a hundred years from now,” he elaborates. “You want to be careful not to dictate what goes on the land, but just to have it be in agriculture.” To date, the Sonoma County

agency has made only one such purchase, which was initiated by the Cotati-area property owner. But more may be coming. “We do ask landowners that we’re working with who are actively involved in agriculture whether they’re interested in that,” Keene says, but “it’s still a new concept to most of them.”

‘This is a great way to protect this ground and make sure it stays productive.’ MALT has so far completed four easement purchases with the aguse requirement, and intends to apply it to all new deals. And that’s not all. “Phase two is looking to go back and amend all of our old easements,” says Watts. “It would be voluntary on the part of the landowners. We wouldn’t be forcing this on anybody; there would be some compensation involved. And we’re still working on that number.” An answer is expected by next summer. By applying the Mandatory Agricultural Use provision to more—maybe even most—of the land MALT has already protected, the agency hopes to also help sustain the entire ag sector of the local economy. “It works both ways,” explains Watts. “The producers rely on the supporting infrastructure—the veterinarians, the truck drivers, the markets—and those supporting services rely on the production of agriculture. When you start taking pieces out of the puzzle, 500- to 1,000-acre ranches, and you have this fragmented agricultural landscape, you’re diminishing and weakening that critical mass.” Or, as Loren Poncia sums it up: “It won’t just be open space that sits there and is unproductive.”

DOWNTOWN DELECTABLE Small plates on a seasonal rotation complement 1313 Main’s popular wine offerings.

Lulu’s in Town

1313 Main opens Lulu’s Kitchen to ‘cook for the wine’ BY NICOLAS GRIZZLE

N

apa’s 1313 Main is a stunning wine bar, and after two years, it’s taking the next logical step into the culinary world with the opening of Lulu’s Kitchen. While 1313 Main sets a high bar with its wine selection and service, the food is meant to be an accompaniment, not the main focus, says proprietor Al Jabarin.

“We cook for the wine,” Jabarin explained last month at a media preview tasting, with a prix fixe menu served family-style to tables of four. Noting that Napa has so many excellent dining establishments, Jabarin added that it would be nearly impossible to keep the wine bar’s standards at a high level while simultaneously trying to outperform every restaurant in the area. Lulu’s dishes will transition in and out with the seasons and focus heavily on local farms; the restaurant’s purveyors

are noted on the ever-changing menu. We started with a lobster roll, which proved to be the top dish of the night. (It was such a big hit at the BottleRock festival, says Jabarin, that it will be the only exception to the menu’s “farm to fork” concept.) The lobster was fresh and not overpowered by its slaw-like salad, and the roll was light and sweet. The next dish, a raw vegetable salad ($8), visually beautiful, did not shine as brightly with eyes closed. Impossibly thin

cross sections of radishes, carrots and other root vegetables were delicious at first glance, but needed more seasoning on first bite. Crispy Belgian-style fries with poutine and bacon tasted fine, a concession to comfort food slightly out of place in such a refined setting as 1313 Main. Almost in overcorrection, oeufs en meurette, with quail eggs and pancetta, ($9) proved too dainty to support the thick, salty slices of pancetta. Like the vegetable salad, it looked beautiful, but thinner, less salty slices of pancetta could easily complement the rest of the dish. Abita-braised pork belly with peaches and shoestring taro ($11) was served as a “main entrée” in this parade of small bites. This was the burst of flavor I was longing for. Sliced one-quarter inch in thickness and served with grilled peaches and a blueberry reduction, the pork belly melted in my mouth and left me wanting more. Had my fellow diners been any slower, I would have added at least a hundred more calories to my meal. Dessert consisted of funnel cake strings with a trio of sauces ($8). Funnel cake is best enjoyed en masse; its very name implies dumping the crispy, fried, sugary concoction down one’s gullet, and part of the gratification includes a burnt mouth and soiled shirt. Again, this type of dish seemed out of place at such a fine wine bar, and perhaps the bananas Foster ($8) would be a more appropriate option for formal diners. Attractive items on Lulu’s menu that went untasted include the hanging tender with succotash and pomegranate gastrique ($14) and the heirloom tomato salad with mozzarella and crispy avocado ($12). Jabarin says Lulu’s is open to change. “We’re not dogmatic,” he says. “It’s food and wine, for God’s sake. It should be fun.” That’s the kind of attitude that will keep things fresh and inviting as the kitchen sets out on its way. Lulu’s Kitchen, 1313 Main St., Napa. 707.258.1313.

SMALL BITES

Sept. 14 is an auspicious day for day for beer in Sonoma County. The Petaluma River Craft Beer Festival kicks off its first year, with a focus on new and under-theradar breweriesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and Lagunitas, of course. Attendees can drink beers by the downtown waterfront while sampling food from Cordozaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catering, Belly Left Coast Kitchen, Tres Hombres and others. Participating breweries include Henhouse, Petaluma Hills, Lagunitas, St. Florianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Headlands Brewing Co., 101 North, Sonoma Springs, Moylanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Woodfour, Marin Brewing Co., Dempseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Bear Republic, Baeltane and Carneros. The Fossils, the Dixie Giants and more round out the entertainment on Saturday, Sept. 14, along Water Street near the Petaluma River, downtown Petaluma. 1â&#x20AC;&#x201C;6pm. $30 advance; $40 door, includes souvenir glass and 10 tastings; designated driver, $15. 707.762.2785. www.petalumacraftbeerfest.org. There may be long lines at Russian River Brewing Co. as Zwanze Day 2013 unleashes cult beer fans. Straight out of Cantillon brewery in Belgium, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limited batch is based on recently excavated recipes brewed hundreds of years ago by monks at the Abbey of Cureghem, at least according to Cantillonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. But keeping in mind that â&#x20AC;&#x153;zwanzeâ&#x20AC;? means â&#x20AC;&#x153;jokerâ&#x20AC;? in Brussels dialect, anything is possible. Whether Blair Witchâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; style mythology or true, one thingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for sure: this beerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with its long fermentation period, lambic blend and wild yeastsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is going to be a hell of a thing to experience. No wonder theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made a day out of it. Celebrate Zwanze Day on Saturday, Sept. 14, at the Russian River Brewing Co. 725 Fourth St., Santa Rosa. 707.545.2337.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Leilani Clark

Wineries

Most reviews by James Knight. Note: Those listings marked ‘WC’ denote wineries with caves. These wineries are usually only open to the public by appointment. Wineries in these listings appear on a rotating basis.

SONOMA CO U N TY Bartholomew Park Winery A scenic locale for something that sounds like it belongs in a Henry James novel. Sauvignon Blanc and Cab are kings here. 1000 Vineyard Lane, Sonoma. Open daily, 11am– 4:30pm. 707.935.9511.

Claypool Cellars “They call me Mister Knowitall, I sup the aged wine.” Sup on Primus frontman’s Purple Pachyderm Pinot Noir and Rhone-style Fancí Blend in wine country’s cutest caboose, a must-see for rock and wine fans alike. 6761 Sebastopol Ave., Sebastopol. Open SaturdaySunday, 1–5pm. 707.861.9358. Fetzer Vineyards Even as a corporate giant, Fetzer retains its conscience about the earth, the grapes, the land and its wine. Chardonnay is what Fetzer does especially well. The winery also has a small deli and inn. 13601 Old River Road, Hopland. Open daily, 10am–5pm. 800.846.8637. Karah Estate Vineyards Like a riddle bottled up in a mystery, it’s all but hidden in plain sight above the 101 freeway’s Cotati Grade. Impressive view; mixed bag of low-alcohol, low-priced Pinots from quirky winery. 1010 W. Railroad Ave., Cotati. Friday– Sunday 11am–5pm. $5 fee. 707.795-3030.

Matrix Winery Taking over the former warren of Rabbit Ridge, Mazzocco Winery’s new spinoff promises (threatens?) “Wines to die for.” Pinot, Zin and Syrah are tragically good; bar stool seating and a relaxed vibe are pluses. 3291 Westside Road, Healdsburg. Tasting fee $5. 707.433.1911.

Moondance Cellars Dogs, Cabs and cars are the focus; when a supercharged 1965 Corvette is parked in front, the vintner is in the house. Also, Port and Sherry

Goosecross Cellars Wine that feels good before the first sip

from Sonoma Valley Portworks. 14301 Arnold Drive, Glen Ellen. Daily 11am–6pm. $5 tasting fee. 707.938.7550.

River Road Vineyards Russian River Pinot for $18 at no-nonsense, solid producer. 5220 Ross Road, Sebastopol. By appointment only, Monday–Friday. 707.887.8130.

St. Anne’s Crossing Another Zinfandelic brand from the stable of Ken Wilson. Yawn? No, more like yum. 8450 Sonoma Hwy., Kenwood. Daily, 11am–5pm. Tasting fee, $10. 707.598.5200.

Trione Vineyards & Winery One-time owners of Geyser Peak Winery now wear all the different hats that a small winery requires. A popular stop along a well-liked cycling route, where you’re likely to be greeted with a glass of crisp Sauvignon Blanc, or Bubba the bulldog. 19550 Geyserville Ave., Geyserville. Thursday–Sunday, 10am–5pm. Tasting fee, $5–$15. 707.814.8100.

Wine Guerrilla Comrade, it brings glory to the revolution to inform you that this artistic, quixotic all-Zinfandel brand now has its own spacious tasting room in downtown Forestville. I’d say that these screw-capped but definitely serious Zins are worthy of cellaring, but that would be so bourgeois. 6671 Front St., Forestville. Daily, 11am–5pm. Tasting fee, $10. 707.887.1996.

N A PA CO U N TY Bennett Lane Winery The old trope “beer-drinking NASCAR fans vs. Chardonnaysipping highbrows” runs out of gas at a winery that sponsors an annual NASCAR race and has its own car, emblazoned with grapes. A Roman emperor who appreciated hearty vino as much as a good chariot race inspired Maximus White and Red “feasting wines.” 3340 Hwy. 128, Calistoga. 707.942.6684.

Cain Think you know about what food to pair with Napa Valley “mountain grown” Cabernet Sauvignon? How about sake-marinated poached cod in a light broth? Yeah, it is different up here. 3800 Langtry Road, St. Helena. Tour and tasting by appointment only, Monday– Friday, 10am and 11:30am; Saturday, 10am and noon. $35. 707.963.1616.

Frog’s Leap Winery A good story is nearly as important as good wine; Frog’s Leap does a neat job on both. As you wind through the vineyard, the frog pond and the rustic 1884 winery, your tour guide finds bottles along the way, like Easter eggs. Dry-farming, who knew, can produce a beverage more thirst-quenching than water. 8815 Conn Creek Road, Rutherford. Daily, 10am–4pm. Tastings, $20; tours Monday– Friday, $20. 707.963.4704.

Madonna Estate Millennial contingent of multigenerational family winery, once known as Mount St. John, finds success running it old-school: touristy, oldfashioned, and wildly popular. Refreshing Gewürztraminer for summer picnics. 5400 Old Sonoma Road, Napa. Daily 10am to 5pm; $5–$10. 707.255.8864.

Schramsberg (WC) Sparkling wine at its best. The “tasting room” is a branch of the cave illuminated with standing candelabras. 1400 Schramsberg Road, Calistoga. By appointment. 707.942.4558.

Trahan Winery In the fancy heart of downtown Napa, a low-budget “cellar” where wines are shelved, with clever economy, in stacks of wood pallets; vibes are laid-back and real. Carneros Chardonnay and fruity but firm and focused Cab and Merlot from Suisin Valley, Napa’s much less popular stepsister to the east. 974 Franklin St., Napa. Open daily, noon–5:30pm. Tasting fee, $15. 707.257.7477.

Y

ou’re in a room. Yes, it’s a winetasting room. There are two doors, and you must decide. Behind one of the doors is a delicious bottle of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Behind the other is a wild snow leopard. The clock is ticking. Which door do you open? Relax. You’re at Goosecross Cellars, where you can get the wine and help the snow leopard to thrive in its own habitat at the same time. Founded in 1985 by Geoff and Karen Gorsuch with partners David and Colleen Topper, Goosecross purchased a web-based wine charity program from David’s sister a few years ago. Key to the plan is that these are not bulk wines with custom labels slapped on, but the same product as that bearing the sign of the goose. And while the price is the same, the “markup” that goes to participating charity organizations is no 10 percent—it’s significant. That’s an enticing incentive for folks interested in making a donation, says Alicia Antone, who heads up TorchLight Community at the winery. And then, “Once they taste the wine, they’re sold,” she says. Torchlight’s clients are as diverse as the Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort State Historic Park, a Heart to Hold and NorCal German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue. Among their most successful clients is the International Snow Leopard Conservancy, based in Sonoma. The conservancy aims to protect the elusive, big cats through education and partnership with the communities that live with them. Torchlight is much more than just a turn-key website. Winery staff pour at fundraising events, some of which may be held at the property’s old Tudor-style house. Goosecross itself was purchased in 2013 by a Colorado-based investment group owned by members of the Coors brewing family, and for now, manager Christi Coors Ficeli has kept the winery’s low-key, small-winery atmosphere intact. A super-tangy sipper, the grapefruity 2011 Lake County Sauvignon Blanc ($27) is on offer at the friendly barrel room bar; your choice of goose or leopard on the label. The pretty 2011 Napa Valley Viognier ($38) is more peach than apricot, and is unsullied with oak. From the winery’s estate, the 2009 Napa Valley Merlot ($45) rolls a malt ball down a vanilla-scented lane lined with raspberries, the 2009 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon ($79) is elegant and well-rounded and the 2009 Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon ($56) is the kind of bright and friendly Cab that’ll please non-Cab fans, too. These wines are only available at the winery, or via TorchLight Community—except for one retail shop in Omaha, Neb. A charity case, no doubt. Goosecross Cellars, 1119 State Lane, Yountville. By appointment only, 10am–4:30 pm. Tasting fee $20–$25. 707.944.1986.

HOME BASE Andrew Keen will bring his message later this month to the heart of Silicon Valley when he speaks at the C2SV Technology Conference.

You Are the Product

‘Digital Vertigo’ author Andrew Keen lambasts social media’s narcissism and full-scale data mining BY DAEDALUS HOWELL

S

anta Rosa author, speaker and entrepreneur Andrew Keen isn’t interested in becoming your Facebook “friend.” He’s interested in saving your digital soul. A CNN columnist and host of the TechCrunch chat show Keen On, the British-born transplant brandishes a mordant, simmering wit that blooms to full ire when discussing issues of personal privacy in the age of Web 3.0. In

his most recent book, Digital Vertigo: How Today’s Online Social Revolution Is Dividing, Diminishing, and Disorienting Us, Keen contends that Facebook and its ilk aren’t the utopias of interpersonal transparency much ballyhooed by their makers, but rather a kind of exhibitionistic self-enslavement that precludes privacy and solitude, which Keen believes are prerequisite to living fully developed lives. The notion that “social” media makes us less social isn’t a unique one, and Keen is the first to admit it. Thus, to frame his ideas, he

interweaves themes from the classic film Vertigo. “It’s a remix of Hitchcock’s movie, which is about a man who fell in love with a rich blonde who turned out to be a rather poor brunette who was also a murderess. I fear that with social media, the blonde is, of course, Facebook— we’ve all fallen in love with it—but just as in Hitchcock’s Vertigo, the ‘everyman’ Jimmy Stewart got ‘dressed up’ and taken advantage of,” he says drolly. “We’ve all been taken advantage of. We’ve all been turned into the product.” As a read, Digital Vertigo is

a galloping, reference-jammed, personal essay that explores privacy in the age of social and indicts everyone from a 19thcentury prison architect to a certain bottle-blonde along the way. “When you use Facebook, you are the product and they’re profiting from you,” observes Keen. “If you want to know what Facebook’s business model is, look in the mirror. You’re paying for Facebook and none of that revenue is coming back to you.” In Digital Vertigo, Keen points to how the culture of “sharing” advocated by Mark Zuckerberg

K

and in fact seems to relish it. On his Twitter profile he describes himself as “the Anti Christ of Silicon Valley.” As for O’Reilly, “I think he’s a little oversensitive,” says Keen. “I respect him, politically. And I think O’Reilly is a decent guy. I think he’s a good person. But his response to The Cult of the Amateur was such an outrage—that I was only doing it to make money or get attention.” Cult of the Amateur: How Today’s Internet Is Killing Our Culture, Keen’s 2007 bestseller that’s since been translated into 15 different languages, begins with Keen’s epiphany at O’Reilly’s FOO Camp, in 2004, while listening to a bunch of wealthy Silicon Valley types talk incessantly and religiously about “democratization.” Media, entertainment, business, government—nearly everything, went the rallying cry, would be “democratized” by what O’Reilly had famously christened Web 2.0. “The more that was said that weekend, the less I wanted to express myself,” Keen writes in the book’s introduction. “As the din of narcissism swelled, I became increasingly silent. And thus began my rebellion against Silicon Valley.” (O’Reilly declined comment when contacted for this story.) Current targets of Keen’s scorn and ridicule run the gamut from Sean Parker and his lavish wedding ceremony in Big Sur (“I’m interested in this idea of Silicon Valley trying to engineer serendipity”) to Google Glass, which Keen sees as the beginning of an inevitable migration of personal computing off of our desktops and out of our pockets and onto—and eventually into— our bodies. Sitting near the television, amid Keen’s many technological devices around the house,

‘We think that our narrative is interesting, and actually, it’s incredibly boring to everyone except ourselves and advertisers.’

een, 53, grew up in North London, studying history at the University of London. After moving to the United States, he earned a master’s degree in political science from UC Berkeley. Still keeping a house in Berkeley, he moved to a modest 1939 bungalow in the JC area of Santa Rosa in 2010 to be with his two children. On a recent morning, they fiddle around on iPads in the living room, while Keen, in shorts and a plain black T-shirt, offers tea and discusses his place in Silicon Valley. “I see my role in the DawkinsHitchens tradition,” says Keen. “Some of these people take themselves so seriously.” Naturally, Keen is not without his critics. As Sebastopol-based tech publisher and open-source advocate Tim O’Reilly opined in the 2008 documentary The Truth According to Wikipedia, “I think [Keen] was just pure and simple looking for an angle, to create some controversy and sell a book. I don’t think there’s any substance whatever to his rants.” Keen is aware of his reputation,

is a DVD, rented from the video store down the street, of Minority Report. Steven Spielberg’s 2002 film foresaw graphical user interfaces, gesture-based navigation and ultra-thin transparent screens, technological advances now part of modern life. But one prediction in the film eerily rings far truer than the others: when Tom Cruise walks through the city, retinal scans pick up his individual information, and targeted advertising suddenly appears, keyed to his personal data. This seemed intrusive and insidious just 11 years ago. In Keen’s view, it’s something in which we now willingly participate. Except it’s not called a retinal scan—it’s called a “status update.” “We go on the internet and we use these services, and we’re not willing to pay for them. We use Google and Facebook without really understanding that their business model is acquiring our data so that they can sell more and more advertising,” says Keen. “If you’re not paying for your content, check your pockets, because you’re being taken advantage of.”

K

een’s sentiment echoes that of his friend Nicholas Carr (author of The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains), who argues that Facebook and its ilk represents a form of “digital sharecropping.” “One of the fundamental economic characteristics of Web 2.0 is the distribution of production into the hands of the many and the concentration of the economic rewards into the hands of the few,” wrote Carr all the way back in 2006. “It’s a sharecropping system, but the sharecroppers are generally happy, because their interest lies in self-expression or socializing, not in making money.” Keen concurs. “We’re all back in the antebellum South here in terms of working in the fields,

guaranteeing massive profit for a small group of people who are laughing all the way to the bank.” What is the cultural mechanism that brought us to this place of full disclosures, and what pan-global personality tick is it exploiting? “We’re all desperate to express ourselves. We all think we have something interesting to say about ourselves, so we feel we have almost a moral or aesthetic obligation to go on Facebook and tell the world what we’re having for breakfast, what we’re wearing or, all too often, what we’re not wearing,” says Keen. “I don’t think we can blame the social networks; we have to blame ourselves,” adds Keen. “We’ve fallen in love with ourselves, we think that our narrative is interesting, and actually, it’s incredibly boring to everyone except ourselves and the advertisers who are profiting from us,” he continues. Keen doesn’t identify himself as entirely anti-Facebook. “When a grandmother uses it to connect to her grandchild or when we catch up with friends from school or college we haven’t seen in years—those aren’t bad things,” says Keen, who, noting he owns an iPhone, iPad, Macbook Air, iMac and Canon 5DII, insists that he’s not a Luddite, either. But call him an elitist, as Stephen Colbert did on The Colbert Report in 2007, and Keen will wholeheartedly agree. “I’m unashamedly elitist in the sense that I believe there’s only a small group of people that are talented and hardworking enough to create great books, movies and songs, and the vast majority of us are much better off actually consuming that stuff, paying for it and enabling a viable cultural economy than wasting our time blogging or putting our worthless photos, songs or movies up,” Keen says. Since the majority of social networks originate in the United States, it’s suggested there might be something endemic ) 21

and other social-media titans is tantamount to a wet dream for intelligence agencies. We willingly reveal tons of private data, our present locations, what we had for lunch and other miscellany comprising our lives, that, when aggregated, produces an accurate and predictive portrait of who are, who we know and what (and even who) we’re doing. “We should be paying for our content on the internet,” Keen argues, “and until we figure that out—and consumers grow up and understand that they need to pay for online content—they’re going to continue to be abused and exploited by datamining companies like Facebook and Google.”

or many, Keen’s acerbic manner and proclivity for blunt statements (e.g., “Most of the stuff on the internet is either biased or bad”) might disqualify him as a spokesperson for the world of working media professionals. In reality, Keen is among a media professional’s fiercest allies. In Cult of the Amateur, Keen essentially argues that people should leave mediamaking to the pros. Of course, as a maker of content, online and off, Keen has a vested interest in professionals being compensated for their work. It’s a difficult point to counter, especially when one considers that consumers seem happy to pay for everything in the world except online content. (Keen applauds institutions like The New Yorker and the New York Times, which have paywalls around their content, and asserts that more creators should do the same.) Why we should start paying for online content is best illustrated by paying attention to the ads in a browser’s sidebar. You might have noticed that after a Google search for a specific item, advertisements for the item seem to follow you around the internet for days afterward. This is an example of how your ostensibly private online behavior is being used to both market you and market to you. This, asserts Keen, is part of the price of free content. For those with paranoid dispositions, privacy is merely the gate fee. What other personal costs might be levied? Consider the fact that college admissions offices routinely review the social media accounts of new applicants to gauge their suitability for campus life. Then, of course, there

odgy as it may be, we’re caught in a bit of cultural shift, one in which Keen’s suggested remedy for our privacy concerns—simply paying for content—isn’t necessarily the fix. The fact is, Facebook and Google don’t want you to pay for content, at least not with real dollars. A fair amount of social engineering has transpired in the past decade to bring “radical transparency” into the personal sphere. And that is vastly more valuable to data-driven entities than your 99 cent download. What Americans should really stop doing, says Keen, is giving away their data in a misguided effort toward posterity. “What we need to teach the internet is how to forget. At the moment, the internet is lacking a human quality—all it knows is how to remember. Forgetting is much more human than remembering.” And for Keen, he’ll know humanity has triumphed and reclaimed its privacy when someday we ask, “Remember when the internet was free?” Andrew Keen appears with over 70 media and tech professionals speaking at C2SV, a three-day conference of tech and music running Sept. 26–29 in San Jose.

to the American psyche, some kind of hybrid of our can-do spirit and guarantee of free speech that causes us to believe that since we can share our amateur efforts, we should share our amateur efforts. “We’ve fallen under this sort of uber-democratic illusion that everyone has something interesting to say,” asserts Keen, “and they don’t.”

Out of the Shadows After losing his job in the dot-com bust, Zach Schwartz decided to ditch the leagues of the great unwashed to become Zach Rogue, the brilliant musical artist. Since then, his band Rogue Wave’s songs have played on the soundtracks to movies such as Love Happens, Napoleon Dynamite, Just Friends and Rachel Getting Married, and have been featured on TV shows like Heroes, Friday Night Lights and Weeds. The band’s popularity is so apparent that even in the 2009 blockbuster hit Love Happens, the main character is disappointed that the Rogue Wave concert is sold-out, until Jennifer Aniston manages to get her hands on a couple of tickets. Now it’s your chance to snatch a few tickets before they’re sold-out again on Saturday, Sept. 14, at the Sweetwater Music Hall. 19 Corte Madera Ave., Mill Valley. 9pm. $30. 415.388.3850.

Portals of the Past ‘The Pavilion’ a rumination on regret BY DAVID TEMPLETON

‘T

his is the way the universe begins.” So pronounces a congenially mysterious narrator (the dependably excellent Jeff Coté) in the opening moments of Craig Wright’s 2000 drama The Pavilion, now playing at Cinnabar Theater. A bittersweet morsel about fate, love and the choices we cannot undo, The Pavilion establishes from the start that we are always in the act of creating and destroying our own universes. As the narrator—sharing DNA with the stage manager from Thornton Wilder’s Our Town—guides the scenes, stepping in and out as a number of supporting characters, it is clear that we, the audience, are meant to think about our own choices, to recognize them as part

of the grand neverending dance party of time and space. It is a poetic and ambitious goal, and at times, The Pavilion actually succeeds. Unfortunately—unlike in Our Town, where a run-of-the-mill morning in Grover’s Corners really does become a metaphor for the lifespan of the entire human race— little that takes place in The Pavilion feels as earthshakingly profound as it clearly wants to, frequently bogging down in static predictability and simplistic character development. Despite this, there is an honest aching heart beating beneath Wright’s lyrical dialogue, and at times the power of the prose overcomes the script’s other weaknesses. Directed by Tara Blau, the play is set during a 20-year high school reunion in the fictional town of Pine City, Minn. Peter (Nathan Cummings) and Kari (Sami Granberg) were once the cutest couple at school. Twenty years ago, Kari got pregnant, and Peter, frightened by the prospect of losing control of his life, fled Pine City, leaving Kari to deal with her crisis alone. Now, after years of regret, he appears at the reunion—at the Pavilion, a soon-to-be demolished local landmark—with hopes of rekindling the relationship, but Kari, still seething with resentment, initially has no interest in seeing him or discussing the pain of those experiences so many years ago. Cummings and Granberg, though fine actors clearly working at the top of their game here, have little fire or chemistry together, and both read far younger onstage than the 38-year-olds they are supposed to be, robbing the tale of much of its intended worldweary pathos. There is much that is moving and memorable about The Pavilion, but just like Peter and Kari’s hopes for their lives, I somehow expected a little bit more than I got. Rating (out of 5): ++++ ‘The Pavilion’ runs Friday–Sunday through Sept. 22 at Cinnabar Theater. 3333 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. Friday–Saturday, 8pm; Sunday, 2pm. $25–$35. 707.763.8920.

‘Rising from Ashes’ tells fascinating story, blandly, of Rwandan bike team BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

R

wanda is a desperately poor and tragic country, yet it’s also quite lovely, like Oregon’s Yamhill County. T. C. Johnstone’s bland, patchy documentary Rising from Ashes fails to lend poetry to that beauty. Despite its inspiring subject, the film is ultimately interesting only to the most ardent long-distance cyclists. The film is about the creation of Team Rwanda, which Northern Californian bicycling phenomena Jonathan “Jock” Boyer organized with the help of pioneering mountain biker Tom Ritchey. Rising from Ashes tiptoes for a half hour around the “bad choices” that in 2002 landed Boyer in jail. Eventually we hear the bad news: lewd behavior with an 11-year-old. Forgiveness depends on forgivability. Though he’s seen tenderly caring for his pets, Boyer has the 20/20 tunnel vision of any successful coach: his focus is on recruiting, cutting and training a team from Rwanda to compete in several serious international races

before they arrive for competition at the 2012 London Olympics. The interviews are too frequently inexpressive, but you can’t blame the reluctance of these athlete, who suffered unthinkable losses. First they survive the 1994 massacres; later, they’re harassed by criminal countrymen who think they’re wealthy celebs. Johnstone glances over but doesn’t give us the sense of the races on the way to London, including the Cape Race in South Africa and New Mexico’s Tour of the Gila. True, narrator Forest Whitaker gives a good, fast TED-talk on the history of Rwanda’s tragedy: a catastrophe rooted in insane eugenics schemes carried out by the Belgian descendants of The Heart of Darkness’ Kurtz. One roots for Team Rwanda to triumph, but Philip Gourevitch’s account of the intrepid riders in a July 2011 New Yorker article is more informative that what we see here. And the prose is far more cinematic than Rising From Ashes, too. ‘Rising from Ashes’ opens Friday, Sept. 13, at Rialto Cinemas.

I

n poetic verse, it’s convenient that BottleRock scans a bit like a certain colloquialism that starts with “cluster.” With festival organizers facing over $2.5 million in unpaid debts, some vendors aren’t waiting for the courts to decide who gets paid. “I felt super alone at the onset,” says Mary Munat, owner of Sebastopol’s Green Mary waste diversion company, who is owed $28,700. “I didn’t think that my company was going to make it. It’s just too small to take this kind of hit.” Her friends and family hated to see the cheerful environmentalist worried, so they put together this week’s benefit concert in Sebastopol. They’re not expecting

to raise $29,000, but anything would help Munat, who was forced to take out a loan to pay employees after the festival. Munat’s not alone, of course, and there are creditors who haven’t come forward yet. Of the known debts, the largest are to the Napa Valley Expo ($310,938), Bauer’s Intelligent Transportation Inc. ($524,239) and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 16 ($630,000). Like Green Mary, the Up and Under Pub in Point Richmond reached out to the community for support. Owed $185,000 for backstage catering services and struggling to make payroll and keep the doors open, the pub set up a “cash mob” night via Facebook, asking supporters to come out and spend money in droves. It raised a fraction of the debt, but it helped. Munat and her crew separate trash from compost and recycling, which results in at least an 85 percent landfill diversion rate, she says. Now she’s learning to do the same in business meetings, vowing never to work with BottleRock organizers Gabe Meyers and Bob Vogt in the future. No matter how successful the fundraiser is, Munat will still file suit for money owed. “They shouldn’t get away with it,” she says. Though no deal has been officially announced, meetings have taken place between Live Nation, one of the country’s largest concert promoters, and some parties involved in BottleRock. The Napa Valley Register reports that Napa mayor Jill Techel and Napa Valley Expo CEO Joe Anderson met with Live Nation representatives on Aug. 2. If Live Nation buys BottleRock, settling the outstanding debts would likely be part of any deal. If that deal falls through, prepare for an interesting documentary: The Little Festival That (Almost) Could. The Green Mary Gala features the Highway Poets, the Atom Waltz Project, comedy with Swami Beyondananda and a Trashion Fashion Show on Friday, Aug. 13, at the Sebastopol Community Center. 390 Morris St., Sebastopol. 7pm. $15–$50 sliding scale. 707.823.1511.

Another Knockout Year Ben Stiller, Dakota Fanning, among attendees at Mill Valley Film Fest Hi! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Death, the smooth-talking narrator of The Book Thief, the Oscar-bait movie starring Geoffrey Rush, who does not play me, but could have, because Geoffrey Rush rocks! Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just one of the reasons I already snapped up tickets for the 36th annual Mill Valley Film Festival (get them at www.mvff. com), running Oct. 3â&#x20AC;&#x201C;13. The Book Thief kicks things off with Rush in attendance on opening night, sharing the evening with Alexander Payneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new drama Nebraska, starring Bruce Dern (heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be there, too, and he also rocks), as an old coot at deathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s door who talks his son (Will Forte, rocks as well) into driving him cross-country to pick up prize money he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really win. Crazy stuff happens. And that just skims the surface of the action-packed film offerings and celebrity appearances planned for this year. Ben Stiller will screen his new movie. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty; Dakota Fanning, star of the much-buzzed Effie Gray, gets a spotlight; and Revenge of the Jedi gets a 30th anniversary screening. Jared Leto will be there, too, and the whole thingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kicked off with a soldout screening of Metallicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new movie, Metallica Through the Never, with all four band members in a Q&A on Sept. 17. There are tons of other films, too, so heyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;do what I do: keep busy! And see you at the movies! â&#x20AC;&#x201D;David Templeton

Lit events bursting at the spine this week

Gutierrez will be at Book Passage (51 Tamal Vista Blvd.) on Tuesday, Sept. 11, at 6:30pm; Tom Barbash (his story collection Stay Up with Me comes out this month) appears Sept. 10. Then Daniel Handler’s back in town Sept. 12 for “An Unfortunate A-List Conversation with Lemony Snicket’s Alter Ego” at 142 Throckmorton (142 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley). Have you dreamed of reading a novel based around Skinny Bitch, the vegan cookbook empire developed by Kim Barnouin? Well, this is your lucky day: Skinny Bitch in Love is a kitchen rom-com about a twenty-something chef who “loses her dream job—only to find happiness after she launches a vegan cooking school and falls for a sexy carnivore.” Barnouin appears at a $55 Book Passage Literary Luncheon on Saturday, Sept. 14. Back for round two, the astounding Junot Diaz (pictured) will be at Book Passage on Sept. 15 in support of the paperback release of his award-winning short story collection This Is How You Lose Her. That same day, poets Kay Ryan and Jane Hirshfield appear in an afternoon conversation and reading at the Dance Palace (503 B St., Point Reyes Station) as a benefit for the West Marin Review. And finally, Michael Chabon’s latest novel, Telegraph Avenue, takes Oakland as its setting, and kung fu, Blaxploitation films, vinyl LPs and soul music as its ephemera. The author appears at Book Passage on Tuesday, Sept. 27, at 7pm.—Leilani Clark

BY ROB BREZSNY

For the week of September 11

ARIES (March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19) â&#x20AC;&#x153;A good story should make you laugh and a moment later break your heart,â&#x20AC;? wrote Chuck Palahniuk in his book Stranger Than Fiction. From what I can tell, Aries, the sequence is the reverse for you. In your story, the disruption has already happened. Next comes the part where you laugh. It may be a sardonic chuckle at ďŹ rst, as you become aware of the illusions you had been under before the jolt exposed them. Eventually, I expect you will be giggling and gleeful, eternally grateful for the tricky luck that freed you to pursue a more complete version of your fondest dream. TAURUS (April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20) Taurus musician David Byrne was asked by an interviewer to compose a seven-word autobiography. In response, he came up with 10 words: â&#x20AC;&#x153;unďŹ nished, unprocessed, uncertain, unknown, unadorned, underarms, underpants, unfrozen, unsettled, unfussy.â&#x20AC;? The coming days would be an excellent time for you to carry out similar assignments. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to see you express the essential truth about yourself in bold and playful ways. I will also be happy if you make it clear that even though youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a work-inprogress, you have a succinct understanding of what you need and who you are becoming.

GEMINI (May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20) The French word sillage means â&#x20AC;&#x153;wake,â&#x20AC;? like the trail created behind a boat as it zips through water. In English, it refers to the fragrance that remains in the air after a person wearing perfume or cologne passes by. For our purposes, we will expand the deďŹ nition to include any inďŹ&#x201A;uences and impressions left behind by a powerful presence who has exited the scene. In my astrological opinion, Gemini, sillage is a key theme for you to monitor in the coming days. Be alert for it. Study it. It will be a source of information that helps you make good decisions.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cataglottismâ&#x20AC;? is a rarely used English word that has the same meaning as French kissingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;engaging in liberal use of the tongue as you make out. But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recommend that you incorporate such an inelegant, guttural term into your vocabulary. Imagine yourself thinking, while in the midst of French kissing, that what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing is â&#x20AC;&#x153;cataglottism.â&#x20AC;? Your pleasure would probably be diminished. This truth applies in a broader sense, too. The language you use to frame your experience has a dramatic impact on how it all unfolds. The coming week will be an excellent time to experiment with this principle. See if you can increase your levels of joy and grace by describing whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening to you with beautiful and positive words.

LEO (July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;August 22) This is Correct Your First Impressions Week. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a perfect time for you to reevaluate any of your beliefs that are based on mistaken facts or superďŹ cial perceptions. Are you open to the possibility that you might have jumped to unwarranted conclusions? Are you willing to question certainties that hardened in you after just a brief exposure to complicated processes? During Correct Your First Impressions Week, humble examination of your ďŹ xed prejudices is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. P.S. This is a good time to reconnect with a person you have unjustly judged as unworthy of you. VIRGO (August 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;September 22) This is a good time to free yourself from a curse that an immature soul placed on you once upon a time. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not talking about a literal spell cast by a master of the dark arts. Rather, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m referring to an abusive accusation that was heaped on you, perhaps inadvertently, by a careless person whose own pain made them stupid. As I evaluate the astrological omens, I conclude that you now have the power to dissolve this curse all by yourself. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a wizard or a witch to handle it for you. Follow your intuition for clues on how to proceed. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a suggestion to stimulate your imagination: Visualize the curse as a dark purple rose. See yourself hurling it into a vat of molten gold. LIBRA (September 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;October 22) The current chapter of your life story may not be quite as epic as I think it is, so my advice may sound melodramatic. Still, what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to tell you is something we all need

to hear from time to time. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty sure this is one of those moments for you. It comes from writer Charles Bukowski: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody can save you but yourself. You will be put again and again into nearly impossible situations. They will attempt again and again through subterfuge, guise, and force to make you submit, quit and/or die quietly inside. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a war not easily won, but if anything is worth winning, then this is it. Nobody can save you but yourself, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re worth saving.â&#x20AC;?

SCORPIO (October 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;November 21) The cosmos hereby grants you poetic license to be brazen in your craving for the best and brightest experiences . . . to be uninhibited in feeding your obsessions and making them work for you . . . to be shameless as you pursue exactly and only what you really, really want more than anything else. This is a limited-time offer, although it may be extended if you pounce eagerly and take full advantage. For best results, suspend your pursuit of trivial wishes and purge yourself of your bitchy complaints about life.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;December 21) At the last minute, Elsa Oliver impulsively canceled her vacation to New York. She had a hunch that something exciting would happen if instead she stayed at her home in England. A few hours later, she got a message inviting her to be a contestant on the U.K. television show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? In the days and weeks that followed, she won the equivalent of $100,000. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not predicting anything quite as dramatic for you, Sagittarius. But I do suspect that good luck is lurking in unexpected places, and to gather it in you may have to trust your intuition, stay alert for late-breaking shifts in fate, and be willing to alter your plans. CAPRICORN (December 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;January 19) â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only thing standing between you and your goal,â&#x20AC;? writes American author Jordan Belfort, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t achieve it.â&#x20AC;? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t entirely agree with that idea. There may be other obstacles over which you have little control. But the bullshit story is often more than half the problem. So thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the bad news, Capricorn. The good news is that right now is a magic moment in your destiny when you have more power than usual to free yourself of your own personal bullshit story. AQUARIUS (January 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;February 18)

Is the truth a clear, bright, shiny treasure, like a big diamond glittering in the sunlight? Does it have an objective existence thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s independent of our feelings about it? Or is the truth a fuzzy, convoluted thing that resembles a stream of smoke snaking through an underground cavern? Does it have a different meaning for every mind that seeks to grasp it? The answer, of course, is both. Sometimes the truth is a glittering diamond and at other times itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a stream of smoke. But for you right now, Aquarius, the truth is the latter. You must have a high tolerance for ambiguity as you cultivate your relationship with it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more likely to reveal its secrets if you maintain a ďŹ&#x201A;exible and cagey frame of mind.

PISCES (February 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20)

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good time to indulge in wide-open, high-ďŹ&#x201A;ying, anythinggoes fantasies about loveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if, that is . . . if you also do something practical to help those fantasies come true. So I encourage you to dream about revolutionizing your relationship with romance and intimacyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as long as you also make speciďŹ c adjustments in your own attitudes and behavior that will make the revolution more likely. Two more tips: 1. Free yourself from dogmatic beliefs you might have about loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possibilities. 2. Work to increase your capacity for lusty trust and trusty lust.
