The world looks way better through the eyes of the rich.

In a Moment of Truth, Jeff Dorchen peeks at this rosy world through money colored glasses - and sees the accumulated waste piling up in the bank accounts of the tyrannical rich and the guts of sperm whales and the assorted hog farms and sea and earth and sky - it's not a bad view if you all you see are dollar signs.




End of the month, end of the world: On social and ecological struggle with the Yellow Vests.
