“During eight years of relentless attacks, Freeman still managed to bring cohesion to wanting elements of society who needed a place to flourish. Against this backdrop came ‘The Monastery’s ‘come as you are and join us as we are’ message of enlightenment, which provided a ready stage for this city’s alternative community to come into its own.”
This is a great initiative, which many of the city’s well-wishers have lauded, including George Freeman during his run for city council. However, a little competition never hurts. And a need exists for greater commitment to making Seattle’s skyline compatible with the rest of the modern world. This will allow Seattle to compete with other cities on the national scale, like New York and San Francisco.
Freeman believes that, “We live in an age of divisive religious beliefs, and fear is used as an influential tool by militant religious organizations.”
Individuals like George Freeman see the matter for what it is, and realize the need for having a proactive back-up plan for the human species. And that means adapting to a meatless diet as part of our path forward here on earth.
