Just a few random thoughts on change:
[from a conversation with a 1961 friend, fellow traveller, explorer
and wildlife conservation activist (had several roads completely blocked
off to protect the habitat of the copperbelly water snake):
If more people the world over did as we (followers of the permaculture
and natural farming discipline) do, global civilization would be on an
upward path with no end in sight.
Remember the statement:
(from John Donne)
Ask not for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee.
Therefore, we should:
turn on naturally
may peace, calm, quietude & tranquillity bring you to a contemplative
state wherein you may become enlightened
become at one with the silence
the infinitesimally small spot at the center of ever-expanding waves
the sound of one mind, motionless
most of the stuff of the world will slough off around you as you awaken
into light and sound

Excellent! This would make a good beginning for a new permaculture
Forget this last step though it may be possible with select honest
corporations, or pass more regulations (like ones that were removed
to make way for corruption).

Stop natural gas drilling and fracking in locations where it should not
be even remotely considered.
