Thanks for your response.  I'm running a race with ignorance and death, 
not with you or anyone else on this list.  I know what I know and it's 
just one very small part of the collective knowledge.
I'm responding to posts on this list that say, outright or not, that 
politics is off-topic on-list, rather than to the sum total of all the 
work permaculturalists do in the world.  This seems to me a gardening list.
I don't find "Greener than thou" in any way satisfying.   I read about 
your class in starting a food co-op too late to attend but think that's 
the sort of thing that needs to be done on a large scale now to have the 
infrastructure in place when the oil spigot turns off and industrial 
agriculture collapses.  When are you doing it again?  Earth, and 
probably nature, will survive humans, but extinction is so needless, if 
we apply Permaculture principles to liberate ourselves and the remains 
of planetary life from the dark forces of dominion.
