I believe the work of Paul Cienfuegos is relevant to this topic. http://paulcienfuegos.com/
We can only do so much through motivation. The corporation is bound by an ethic based in taking advantage within the legal boundaries. People in corporate management are in a sense “bound by an oath” to uphold the selfish ambitions of capitalism. Capitalism when defined as “free market is natural, proper, and benign. Capitalism in its current form and the effect of current corporate laws have produced a monster that can only be sufficiently shackled by the laws and ordinances of local community. Since every where on the planet is a local community, each needs to be supportive of the other as we stand up to the monster against the tide of inappropriate political pressures and lawless legalities.
Sustainability can only be established through local control of local resources. We must find the process to get there. Sustainability is in the best interests of local community and is a challenge that generations coming of age are up for.

I don't believe in destroying what is here today. I believe in building a future that outperforms and solved inadequacies and failures of present and the past.
My driving intent and focus goes to empower the agrarian reality. I dream of and believe in the need for agrarian renaissance.
Agrarians are those rooted and sustained by the local landscape and community.
I believe that through agrarian success, the world can see a major shift in the human inflicted global ecological effect. We can see a symbiotic future that embraces, feeds on, and promotes ecological and cultural diversity. We can see people, through the natural living of their lives, effecting a rapidly regenerating global environment and reversal of longstanding global desertification.
Since we can, we should. Social engineering? well kind of, yeah. It is intelligent strategic paradigm development. Our civilizational paradigm tends to orient any and all diverse cultures to effect environmental harm/footprint. Therefore, we need to reorient the paradigm to naturally effect regenerative and symbiotic relationships with nature instead.
Agrarian society is in free fall as the paradigm orients cultures and societies around global financial economy with built in rewards and penalties (remember agrarian by definition is place and community oriented).
I believe it is not only possible but crucial to resuscitate and accentuate the infrastructure for global agrarianism and to do it in such a way as to enable renaissance/flowering.
That is my life's work, my passion, and what I live for and would be happy to die for any day of the week. This blog is my rough and in many instances unedited writings on the subject. These are not refined articles. They are a semi-formal journaling to log ideas I find important.
