Potato salad for a good cause
In a world of no clear hope for tomorrow with all its insecurities from so many points of perspectives, in this place of time where only future holds the answers to all our questions and worries regarding burning farmlands, global warming, financial markets, market economy, waves of refugees, political turns to the extreme in all directions, terrorism, civil war, and all the other relevant topics of today, it is nice to sometimes step back and conjure up that, if you break it down to the essence, it is a new consciousness that shakes and disrupts the old and causes all the anxiety in the now, that some of us suffer from.
It is gender studies, feminism, #metoo, Fridays For Future, Seawatch, drone-delivered mail, self-driving electric cars and more and more people in the streets around the globe telling the past to go home. Times have started to change.
We’re not there, yet. The past claws itself onto its positions as decision-makers in political offices and consistories, it‘s manifested in the minds of the majority of the people, still. The fear of losing status, security, benefits is so immense that there is not only change for the better but also very frightening things going on in this exact moment. But can we, just for a second, appreciate that there is finally visible movement here and there? Because the darker the times, the more important it becomes to sometimes switch your point of perspective!
Only about 5 years ago, Zack “Danger“ Brown, just a guy from Ohio, fundraised 55.000$ for the idea of making potato salad
