I was reading some of The Available Man (Warren Harding) today. The book noted that in choosing his Cabinet, Harding wanted to “…have a popular group of the best minds around him.” With my Cabinet, I don’t know so much about “popular,” but I would want the “best minds” around me — if those minds were linked to solid spirituality. What’s more, they would need to be “minds” in step, not necessarily with the mainstream, but rather in step with doing the right things, period. For instance, “traditional farmers” these days are lacing their fields with toxic pesticides, herbicides and fertilizer. By extension, we’re ingesting food with this stuff in it. And by further extension, cancer rates are spiking. So… My Secretary of Agriculture may well be an obscure, but agriculturally right on track: small organic farmer. In fact, see our position paper on agriculture to see this flushed out more.
