Strongly encourage you to watch the entire interview!
My short synopsis that does not do any justice to this interview:
The virus is not the enemy, they are necessary for our adaptation, our evolution.
Our true enemy, the true cause lies in our polluted planet, polluted air, glyphosate riddled and large scale animal Ag dependent food system, our pandemic level chronic disease rates and our disconnection from that natural world.
My short commentary:
What is behind this? Look into predatory capitalism and the economic forces standing to gain from our collective misery, diseased states, ceaseless wars.
Demand clean food, water and air.
Eat whole foods, mostly plants
Reconnect, connect daily with nature.
Move your body daily
Fight for a Green New Deal. We must end our addiction to oil.
End CAFOs (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations)
End the construction of new oil pipelines.
End police brutality
End for profit prisons.
End discrimination in the work place.
Love yourself. Look within, seek out qualified support to help you work with trauma, your disconnection from your True Self.
Love one another. Especially those who are oppressed and dying at disproportional rates.
Black Lives Matter.
How to see the film, more info:
chemicals will no longer be used on our food & soil
farmers will make more money growing organic food over grass seed and Christmas trees
animal agriculture will fade away
non-human animals will be happy and free
our soil will become alive again
our rivers and air will be clean
tools for true health will be taught
the homeless will be housed
the hungry will be fed
workers will have a living wage
basic health care and education will be a right and free
whole plant foods, nature’s best medicine, will be maximized
medications will be minimized
compassion & joy over fear, anger and greed
sharing over hoarding
present over past
union over separation
The powers that be wish to keep us disconnected, distracted, confused & fearful of one another, pointing fingers at those unknown from afar.
We are better
Our destiny is a greatness not yet known
Love in the end wins
Liberation is the goal
Every moment there is a choice to be present, to learn, to listen, to let go and transform
Then to share our gifts with the world
This is why we are here

Will Bonsall is my new hero, and I say that without exaggeration. Check out the short video clip at the top of the Links section below to see half of the reason why.The other half of the reason take a bit longer to explain – hence this full-length podcast episode.Will is the visionary gardener whose half-century of experimentation and iconoclasm can help us save human civilization from collapse. His method, which he refers to as “gardening without borders,” takes into account all the inputs and outputs of a garden or farm, in contrast to the usual methods of conventional, organic, and permaculture production.
In essence, veganic farms are complex systems where native animals, birds and insects are not driven away, but are welcome to co-habitate.
“Ian Tolhurst, a long-time veganic farmer, explains how he uses the fertility of his own soil through a systemic approach to farming. This means that he does not need to rely on external inputs, whether they are synthetic or animal. Indeed, many have arrived at veganic farming from a concern with sustainability, and when framed politically, autonomy.”
