LL et al..re "gift economy" it is a great philosophy and passionate
cry..which I do sympathise with in attempting to understand this
cry......but, IMO I reflect, once again on what nature teaches us "there is
no free lunch" ! We do not have to study nature for long to recognise very
quickly that only the strong and healthy survive and most else is eaten or
evolved to be eaten by others be they organisms or fungi. I also often
refer to one of Bill Mollisons one liners " The further we move away from
nature the further we move away from nature" known as "The Bruce Effect".
Ironically Bills given name was Bruce...Steve Hart
