Step forward into the darkness Out of your comfort zone Put your hand in front until it feels the wire… The wire of the fence that pins you in and keeps you hungry That defines your poverty We are in a test-tube A vial of delimitation and domestication You deserve to live… To be wild…… Continue reading The BARB-WIRE or the FUTURE
Can Agrarianism Build Ecology, Community, & Abundance?
Did you ever wonder how the earth’s life systems had been able to ‘stiff–arm’ basic physical laws of entropy—the movement of all things from more organized to less over time—that should be more powerful than the non-targeted energy inputs of the sun? It is not a reversal of the laws by any means; it is… Continue reading Can Agrarianism Build Ecology, Community, & Abundance?
Bridging to Tomorrow—Creating the social gravity to enable real impact and change
Norms are not like specifics. In Las Vegas the house always wins and yet some people specifically win as well. Averages and statistics are less valuable to individuals in deciding how to live their lives as they are to social policy and predictions of the future. What will statistically happen is primarily the interplay of… Continue reading Bridging to Tomorrow—Creating the social gravity to enable real impact and change
Ecosystem or bust~Paint the future
...If humanity fails to perfect and populate agrarianism and such a coexistent purpose, we will see a collapse that will recycle most of us and ours and set in motion a long term thousands of year cycle of re-generation... The Timing of Now: The internet—invented, developed and ready to evolve—is now in the place to… Continue reading Ecosystem or bust~Paint the future
The quick and dirty politics of now…
Nearly all people are disgruntled with the ongoing ‘business-as-usual’ failings of our current society. Many are concerned with our failure to move importantly toward actual sustainability on a finite planet. Others are concerned with increasingly volatile world politics, never ending wars, weird and perverted covert-ops, subversion of local communities by multi-national interests, and the increasingly… Continue reading The quick and dirty politics of now…
Finding a Tribe in the Living River
An oddly set allegory and truth and a veiled business strategy Once farmers adapted to rivers and prospered for thousands of years. In later times farmers and communities adapted rivers to humanity and prospered for 50 years followed by a steady decline. Farming adapted better ways to control rivers more, to control soils, and to… Continue reading Finding a Tribe in the Living River
What drives our want?
What drives people to want? That is the critical question in every era. That is the critical question in horse training. We people and the other creatures, perhaps even plants and fungi are driven to want. What is it that drives people to perceive a need for drugs, for chocolate, for the newest drill, for… Continue reading What drives our want?
Defining Basic Terms, and short basic on viable B-corp. metrics
“...You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete...” ― Richard Buckminster Fuller _______________________________ Agrarian = those who seek security and social stability from their relationship to environment and community Agroecology = the close meshing of social humanity with functional ecology, hydrology, and geology… Continue reading Defining Basic Terms, and short basic on viable B-corp. metrics
Framing an alternative perspective–human life and energy for net ecological benefit
We have population concerns that we have two ways of framing. We can look at the people as an extra, system-taxing, unwelcome addition to place. Or we can look at self and humanity as a potential positive contributor to system. Ecologically, invasive species are often considered as an unwelcome tax on a system and classified as invasive due… Continue reading Framing an alternative perspective–human life and energy for net ecological benefit
