Regenerators, young and old, given our current situation, need to operate on the old adage that “the darkest hour is right before the dawn.” Instead of just dwelling on the negative, on the things that divide or frighten us, we need to search out and highlight today’s positive trends, best practices, and solutions. For the OCA and Regeneration International community this means not just focusing on the latest corruption and criminality of the ruling class and the technocrats, not just the delusions and self-destructive behavior of those brainwashed by the Establishment narrative, but on finding, highlighting, and scaling up real life regenerative alternatives.
As we inform ourselves and resist the Great Reset, the Big Pharma power grab, Silicon Valley programming and censorship, the Ukraine war and endless conflict, the reckless science, the pollution of our food, the destruction of the environment and climate, and the mass confusion, fear, and psychosis that has debilitated much of the body politic; we must also search out and highlight the positive trends in grassroots insurgency and creativity. We must seek out, highlight, and participate in the best practices of organic and regenerative food, farming, and land use, as well as the holistic natural health practices, food and dietary changes, and lifestyle transformations that are regenerating people’s health, mental and physical. For a full dose of positive information, go to the internal search engine on the upper right hand side of the OCA homepage and type in the words Regenerative Food and Farming.
Even in these alarming and authoritarian times a critical mass of the global grassroots is starting to wake up and resist—North, South, East, and West—self-organizing at the local and grassroots level, slowly but surely developing a parallel infrastructure of information and grassroots practices, offering healthy and equitable solutions to our most pressing problems: food, farming, climate, poverty, injustice, environmental pollution, war, reckless science and genetic engineering, deteriorating public health, forced migration, unemployment, discrimination, and political corruption.
The bottom line is that people all over the world are fed up with corrupt politicians, greedy businesses and corporations, organized crime, and a polluted environment. Whether we’re talking about China, Russia, or the U.S., most everyday people no longer trust the government, the mass media, nor the oligarchs to act or govern in our best interests. As a growing segment of Millennial youth, women, and minorities are starting to understand, there is no future for their generation, nor for any of us, without fundamental change and Regeneration.
