Small farmers movements and defending subsistence both depend on a new worldview. We can’t think in a mechanical rational way and personally relate to nature. We also can’t  patriarchy and capitalism and simultaneously do something about today’s sexual division of labor – or colonialism.

Though the revolution is coming from the bottom up (and could only come that way) it still feels great to have an institutional elite reaffirm the coming of a new way of seeing rooted in wholeness and interdependence. Physicist David Bohm takes all the cold scientific abstractions we’ve had jammed in our ears since we were kids and begins making it human.
