Here We Go Again?
Industrial society is a dead thing, a zombie being. Human intelligence, spirit and awareness are paralysed and the population decays into numbed, dead-eyed, dull-witted subservience.
It’s probably no coincidence that corporations decided to embrace regenerative agriculture in 2019, the year that all 197 member countries of the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation endorsed a set of “10 elements of agroecology”.

It is no longer enough to tether correspondents to the perspective of the military from whose side they report. We appear to be on the way to having wars fought — huge, bloody, consequential wars — without any witnesses.
