The invasion of the Americas began in 1492 when the slave-trader Columbus was found lost at sea by the friendly Arawak peoples. Waves of indifferent invaders brought disease, invasive species and toxic memes. So much of wild America has been destroyed that the Arawak could not recognize it today. It is time to honor the Indigenous peoples who tended the wildlands we enjoy today.
Synopsis: Why do we have to participate in the destruction of the earth to survive? Why do we have to work to buy food? Weren’t food and land free once? Is there a better way to live? Are we living our truth? Are there skills that we are not being taught? What changes will make a real difference?
We can downsize, recycle and homestead all we want but consumption, population growth and environmental loss will continue. The efforts of activists, NGOs and well meaning leaders are not reversing human impact. So what is the answer?
How do you truly make the world a better place for everyone, human and all of our relations? Revolutions change civilization. Anarchists say we need to stop it. I would say we need to replace it with something better. Follow this journey of logic to a better world.
