Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

In praise of the Sun, the last free thing on Earth.


I know you're all busy with your Insty Grams and your Teddy Grahams and your Taylor Swift and your foie gras, I know those things are very important. Your party clothes. Your chewing gum. But just in case you're ever interested, there's a giant sphere of blazing hydrogen and deuterium plasma that's about a million miles in diameter hanging in the sky. Hanging in the sky. It's just hanging there, smashing subatomic particles together into new elements. Just right up theeeerre.

In a heliocentric Moment of Truth, Jeff Dorchen considers that G-type main-sequence star just sitting there, 93 million miles away, shining all over our our money, our happiness, our sadness, our Bill Murrays, our privatizers, our property-is-thefters, our Mexicos, our baseballs, our capitalists, our artificial shortages - basically everything under the sun, all day.
