The Step Back

Every Friday authors from around the world gather here to share their 100-words and offer constructive crit and encouragement to each other. This creates a wonderful opportunity for free reading of very fresh fiction! Readers are encouraged to comment as well.



I look down from my column, as folk grab a moment’s respite from the rat-race, this Sunday afternoon. It doesn’t have to be this way. Greed drives discontentment, exploitation, war. Self-sufficiency is the path to peace. When we produce everything we need, covetousness, and the endless lust for growth, is history. We’ll never be self-sufficient in bananas, but we can grow apples, pears, raspberries, strawberries aplenty. No-one ever went to war for bananas. Sure, we can still trade, but ensure we want for nothing first. So trade is friendly, not fraught. How I long for the killing to stop. (99)
