Permaculture activism is about creating the positive local alternatives to the control of our food by globalist corporations, because those alternatives are healthier, better for the environment and local economy, more democratic, and fairer to farmers. As the co-originator of the permaculture concept, my life’s work has been committed to creating the world we do want, rather than focusing on fighting the world, we don’t want. I don’t often discuss publicly what is wrong in the world. But when there is an issue that so strongly illustrates the divide between common sense of local communities and the dysfunctional globalist takeover of our democratic decision making, it is important to take a stand.
