Backward thinking old paradigm strategy is disease. For a future there is an obvious forward that does not rediscover the mistakes of the past, but rather its successes.
Let local reinvent relevant over the coming 1000 plus years while they collaborate in the global dialogue. Schooling/education that is not local will not empower relevantly. We cannot invent it this time, we must rediscover it and our connection and let local evolve what is right for local in the vial of local sufficiency.
In such we will have a mechanism to determine “appropriate technology” per locale’ and per microcosm. The diverse world fits not in the human pocket just as “deity” fits not in religion’s pocket.
Let’s let nature do the bulk of the work and teaching and disciple under her for a future.
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.
