FWIW, I did not interpret "...Permaculture ought to..., instead of ..." as stating what has been advocated, but rather recommending that we avoid something (what he feels we should be doing, set apart from what he feels we shouldn't). I suspect everyone agrees with everyone else, but disagrees on how it ought to be expressed. How did the Tao Te Ching begin?

My comment was a reflection on what looked to me
like an inaccurate judgment on the permaculture
movement. The permaculture movement does not
advocate "sinking all of our energies into growing
food for ourselves". I have been reading this
discussion for a while, and I haven't noticed
anyone advocating that here either. So I don't
know where he got this idea.
