Here you can learn about our 25-year native plant restoration project, one that transformed an entire landscape, abandoned, overgrown, and overrun with weeds for 200 years, now independently validated as the best restoration in North America, if not the world.
Here you can learn the historical origins of a destructive cultural mythos holding “Nature” as self-optimizing only when separate from people, and the mounting ecological damage that results on a continental scale. You won't hear about this from the corporate mass media.
Here you can learn how a corporate collectivist system of international "administrative law," has slowly displaced "We the people" with total disregard for either Constitutionally enumerated and limited powers or the separation of powers in an assault on individual rights on behalf of the exceptionally wealthy.
Here, you can learn how the people can build a new society of citizens capable of maintaining representative SELF-government, based in the most essential of social principles.
Unlike most every contrarian site complaining about government or claiming to protect the environment, here you can study concrete proposals for how to transform our corrupt system of political control into a TRUE free market that can do a better job at lower cost, including concrete examples HERE, HERE, and HERE. The goal is a gradual implementation and displacement of the existing paradigm. This is not the corrupt “nature’s services” gambit, with pricing set by the system’s bureaucrats and pet academics, but an industy trading in services to mitigate measured and actuarially-determined risks, businesses competing to lower costs and reduce those risks.
This site also explores the potential for the human factors in that new industry, a 21st Century, low impact, quasi-nomadic society operating in parallel with agro-urban development, conducting basic research, process development, and detailed stewardship dedicated to optimizing the vitality of wildlands, forests, and rangelands, enhancing their capacity to support both wildlife and people as a key contributor to both environmental health and national security. This proposal is based upon discoveries of exactly such a system that was never implemented and lost soon after it was first proposed 3,500 years ago. This is probably the most libertarian model ever devised, with an experiential base derived from thousands of years of continental-scale land management starting from at least the late Pleistocene, as confirmed by the accumulated archaeological and geophysical records.
This is a site like no other. Here you will learn not just “why” but “how” to do what CAN be done, offered to you by a patriot, for free, who asks nothing else of you but to study, hypothesize, experiment, measure, analyze, and repeat...
