Andrew I love the simple phrase you posted here !
In my talks, after I've done my best to explain permaculture and the
big picture, I always get this question "WHat can I do? - What are
some measures little ol' me can take in my daily life to make a
difference" and I always hate that question and I didn't know why -
On the one hand I think whatever I suggest is trifling and hackneyed
- "recycle, use less, walk"- D'uh - On the other hand there's my
belief that we as individuals are being played - that the real
leverage is not, e.g. you and I using less water when only 10% of
water use is residential....
Here's my answer to the question forhwith: DO WHAT YOU CAN,
HERE,NOW !! Period - You do the right thing cause it's the right
thing to do..... Exercise the ethics: Care for the earth, care for
the people, return a surplus.
