PERMACULTURE: A Designers' Manual Bill Mollison, Reny Mia Slay

Is it worth maintaining a system that does not bring anything good? A system based in competition that destroy the possibilities of social cooperation for the common welfare, stopping any attempt of sustainability?

What is the actual social conscience? To live for others who would not die for you; earn money and then nobody else would lend you a single cent; love people who do not know what love is.

We live in a planet in crisis; very often, people feel incapable to realize the change. Permaculture offers positive solutions to world problems, using ecology as a base to study, design, and create systems that last, that are functional, sustainable, and integrated that sustain human establishments and natural ecosystems. Permaculture covers the production of food, housing, technology, communitarian development, legal systems, and financial ones to develop these objectives.

Taking care of the earth and people, sharing the resources, distribution of leftover time, capacities, and energy, are the ethic base of Permaculture.

The key is cooperation, not competition.
