I think i may have a different sense of the ethics than some folks.
I see them as a clear set of instructions on how to behavior rather than
I go to a piece of land. First i:
1. care for the earth: make the system flourish
this includes all the other species.
once the system is established, then you use it's abundance to:
2. care for people
one the people have been cared for you:
3. redistribute the surplus.
which means that you reinvest back in the land, to improve it even more,
to improve the care of people, etc. etc.
whenever i am working on any system: an organization, a community, a
garden, etc i look to the system first and care for it before i try to
take care of the people. Then i care for the people involved (including
myself) and then i take everything that's left and all surplus not
consummed and all available extra labor, and i reinvest that back into the
seems pretty straightforward to me.
