We're running out of History

Sacred Groundskeeping is both entrepreneurial and ecological. It can flourish in a competitive market economy even as it operates as a nonviolent direct action campaign to heal the environment. It seems so strange that we don't talk about it: A healthy ecology creates a healthy economy, and a healthy economy maintains a healthy ecology.  Healthy ecologies reap economic dividends,as it were.  All that is required is a sense of collaboration...

You know that story about the goose who kept laying golden eggs.  The farmer wanted to get rich quick, and didn't care about the goose at all, so he killed her to get rich.  Of course, once dead there was no wealth.

Mother Earth is the goose who lays golden eggs.  Modern Babylon wants to kill her just to get rich.  of course, once she's dead there's no wealth.

So what happens when we start loving the goose, and feeding her really good?

Aha.  Now you see.
