If you’ve been reading my latest posts you’ll know that I’ve been talking about building an alternative, stateless, permaculture paradigm. If you haven’t read any of the previous posts, I recommend you start with my A Stateless Society post. But with this current post I simply want to introduce you to Larken Rose’s work. Following is an excellent, and short, visual example of everything I’ve been attempting to articulate via words. Before you watch, let me share one of my favorite lines from J.R.R. Tolkien:
“Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay: small acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? Perhaps because I am afraid, and he gives me courage.” – Gandalf the Grey, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Hmmm, what do you think now?
