Daryl Northrop on Environment


We can learn from indigenous people

We can learn from indigenous people. The earth and its natural systems are to be respected and cared for. Concepts of ownership should be employed in the context of stewardship and social and ecological responsibility. To create an enduring society, we must devise a system of production and commerce where every act is sustainable and restorative.

Redesign commerce to avoid pathological consumerism

Greens support a major redesign of commerce. Consumables need to be designed to be thrown into a compost heap or eaten. Durable goods would be designed in closed-loop systems, ultimately to be reassembled. Toxics would be safeguarded and have markers identifying them as belonging, in perpetuity, to their makers. Recognition of limits is central. The drive to accumulate power and wealth is pathological. We advocate economic relations that are more direct, more cooperative, and more egalitarian.
