self-reliance, the world's most subversive practice
7000 years of 'agriculture' vide: turning good soil into desert.


QUOTE

Scott London: A reviewer once described your teachings as "seditious."

Bill Mollison: Yes, it was very perceptive. I teach self-reliance, the world's most subversive practice. I teach people how to grow their own food, which is shockingly subversive. So, yes, its seditious. But its peaceful sedition.

London: When did you begin teaching permaculture?

Mollison: In the early 1970s, it dawned on me that no one had ever applied design to agriculture. When I realized it, the hairs went up on the back of my neck. It was so strange. Wed had agriculture for 7,000 years, and wed been losing for 7,000 years everything was turning into desert. So I wondered, can we build systems that obey ecological principles? We know what they are, we just never apply them. Ecologists never apply good ecology to their gardens. Architects never understand the transmission of heat in buildings. And physicists live in houses with demented energy systems. Its curious that we never apply what we know to how we actually live.

Unless of course no one wants solutions anymore and prefer to wallow in doom...
