Just sitting on our porch, wasting time …

Wealth is a deep understanding of the natural world.

Bill Mollison

An intensive monoculture is the breeding ground for unwanted viruses and diseases … That is why people should keep 1.5 meters away from each other …
But how many cows, chickens, pigs, etc. are kept in a modern barn?
How much corn, wheat, soy, grain, etc. is grown on an acre today?

Permaculture is a revolution. But it’s the sort of revolution that no one will notice. It might get a little shadier. Buildings might function better. You might have less money to earn because your food is all around you and you don’t have any energy costs. Giant amounts of money might be freed up in society so that we can provide for ourselves better. So it’s a revolution. But permaculture is anti-political. There is no room for politicians or administrators or priests. And there are no laws either. The only ethics we obey are: care of the earth, care of people, and reinvestment in those ends.

Bill Mollison

In between shooting, I was daydreaming about permaculture as described by Bill Mollison …

And then I noticed which flag the neighbor had hung in his flagpole …

“You could say that Earth’s immune system has finally recognised its most destructive pathogen: humans.”
