“There’s no such thing as a free lunch.”
It’s an idea that is at the core of economics, business and politics. The phrase is often used to emphasize the law of the harvest, which is a valid principle, but one that often serves to justify selfish accumulation. And even those who support compassionate sharing still operate on assumptions of scarcity and materialism, with the goal of effectively managing and distributing the lunch. But deep down, many of us want to get beyond the economic treadmill, beyond politics, beyond the constant pursuit of a lunch that doesn’t satisfy. That’s what this blog is about.
The inspiration for The Lunch Is Free came from the writings of Mormon scholar Hugh Nibley.
