What to think about giving up hope?

I’ve been thinking a lot about hope recently – particularly in the context of the inevitability that faces us. (We’ll be talking a lot about this at the Soul Makers Gathering in September, and my good friend David Hicks will be leading a…

Ecologicial Science of Human Population Dynamics/Overpopulation

We can see and generally agree about what is happening on Earth. Can we focus for a moment on, "Why it is happening?" Under no circumstances can it ever be correct for scientists to consciously censor naturally persuasive scientific research with extraordinary explanatory power just because the new evidence is unforeseen and unwelcome. Our unwillingness to accept what science discloses to us about our di…

Slow Farming

Slow Farming

“These were all manufactured so that a man with a little common sense could repair them.” We were walking the rows of horse-drawn equipment at an estate auction in Dayton, Tennessee.

Sod the odds

It has felt like an uphill task to attempt the healing of waters in a world where elemental is just another commodity to be exploited for profit.

And yet, it is a task which flows from the fact that we are mostly water too, in the way we are; that healing waters is all about the healing of ourselves.

Given this wasting of the waters, poisoning of wells, oceans trashed, acidic rains, shortage and drought, there seems little chance of victory, an increasing certainty of…

Introduction, New Member, Hawaii

I live in Hawaii, and Collapse on a remote, densely populated island presents unique challenges.  I'd like to connect with others around these and many other issues.

Conventional activism is clearly insufficient to generate meaningful change.  Nationalism and the existing economic system, based on scarcity and competition, preclude cooperation on a global scale.  Even the Singularity-like pace of tech progress, producing weekly miracles, seems likely to be at best too little, too late. …
