“Global Permaculture not Politics!”

Interview with Rhamis Kent, Co-Director, The Permaculture Research Institute (Australia & USA). By Willi Paul Studio / Planetshifter.com


- excerpts -

"From what I’ve been able to see, the focus in the U.S. is on homesteading, market gardening, variations on urban agriculture, and (to a lesser degree) trying to expand on opportunities for regenerative/agroecological systems to be applied more widely. I think what I have to offer isn’t particularly useful in advancing those particular efforts at the moment. There are plenty of very capable folks working on that stuff already."

I think permaculture is attempting to create the conditions that render survivalism unnecessary. One of the primary ethical principles permaculture Is built upon is People Care. Survivalism strikes me as being very much motivated by a “me first” way of looking at the world and everything outside of “you” being a potential adversary. I don’t see as much of an emphasis on fostering community & cooperation (outside of other survivalists) – and if it is, the groups are quite small and very provincial." - Rhamis
