  7. Yes, well ~ why not?

    Fact A: there is an ecological crisis, that is evidenced in the vaunted lack of confidence in an international financial system that is totally disconnected from Nature ~ that only pays lip-service to the immensity of the biosphere services that we exploit, mindlessly.

    Fact B: the entire consumer farrago of gluttonous mismanagement is fueled by politically motivated debt ~ driven by bad energy policies, land-grabbing, profiteering resource wars and a barren market-rigged, agricultural system that is deeply destructive; this is a perverse, square-headed ‘methodology’ that is changing our global climate irrevocably.

    Fact C: democratic process is reliant on the notion of consensus. Forests don’t vote, whales do not have a voice in the councils of mankind; only two broad human groups represent the rights of species & habitat: indigenous peoples and research scientists.

    So why do we not insist these two constituencies get together to initiate and sustain, a powerful dialogue? It is already occurring in many contexts, but it needs to be front and center.

    Why not vote for a student debt jubilee; for community investment; for local banks; for resilient, sustainable and healthy food systems; for a mutually productive existence that contributes to inter-species well-being and does not destroy life’s potential? Why not redraw the redundant maps, dissolve irrelevant borders and shape a better consensus beyond habituated, self-imposed restrictions, freed from conditioned cultural reflex? Why not evolve?

    Why indeed?
