Thank you for your questions and comments Eddie. One could say there is a gap between the vision and the reality, but I think the question is - how can we go on being complicit with an economic system (capitalism) that is on carbon overload, and whose end goal is to destroy all life on earth? There are countless solutions on the table right now such as alternative economies, regional economies, gift economies and other manifestos such as The Leap, Drawdown and Green New Deal which seek to keep carbon in the ground.

We have to do something! My work, and my book "Ancient Spirit Rising" is about finding time-tested ways to change our thinking patterns and community actions by decolonizing and using Indigenous societies as our model. It makes as much sense as any other social-cultural path happening right now! And if the apocalypse truly does come to pass, survivors will probably be living in small-scale bioregional groups once again, sustainable and bonded to place, which is the very definition of "Indigenous."

As I say in my book "Ancient Spirit Rising" - “Decolonize now, voluntarily, intentionally, with full awareness and the selective use of resources, OR, decolonize later under duress and hardship, as a dramatic response to traumatic conditions when the current economic paradigm reaches the limits of its sustainability. But decolonize you must, or fade away with the memories of a lost civilization.”
