The essential goal of the association "farms of life" is to create the conditions allowing young people, children, to build a future commensurate with their ambitions, desires and abilities.
This civilization is dying and its fall is likely to be brutal and definitive, bringing with it billions of human beings.
This risk is increasing every day a little more by catastrophic human decisions than by the domino effects brought about by changes in the climate, exhausted agricultural land, end-of-life fossil resources and living resources that have been seriously damaged.
It is useless to try to foresee the moment of the fall of our civilization which will continue its way by amplifying its drifts.
The only possible way is to prepare humans to live in new conditions that will be very different from those we are currently experiencing.
Of course, the path we will have to take is narrow, difficult and full of pitfalls.
But if we agree to live with nature and not against it, we will soon realize that living conditions are not so bad and could even be more pleasant than those we know today. hui.
The implementation of this new civilization must first take into account the conditions that will exist in a few years. If we do not know how to predict them with certainty, we can at least define the main features of our future environment.
Create the civilization of the farm.
We will prepare farms.
In these farms there is no tractor or agricultural machinery. The farm is far too small. Its surface is one hectare, 100 m by 100 m. The only tools will be a dibbler and a claw.
No torture machines for the backs of gardeners and the earth that are forks, shovels, hoes and watering cans.
The farm will produce vegetables, chickens, eggs, chickens, rabbits, fruit, and plenty of good food. And she can feed five hundred people and even a little more. In permaculture they are called surpluses that must be distributed.
The farm will also filter the water so that we can drink it, cook and wash. You will not be able to do this at home because there is no water at the taps.
The farm is going to cook food and preserve, but since we will not have electricity, gas or coal, we will use wood.
And as there is very little forest in France, it will be necessary to pay close attention to the quantity of wood consumed. This will be the only energy available. It will protect and enlarge forests.
The farm, finally some, will cultivate medicinal plants, mushrooms to make drugs. And some farms will turn these plants into drugs, most of them as effective as the ones we have today that often come from plants.
In the farm, children will go to school to learn to read, write, count and especially to learn life and not reproduce the mistakes of the civilization before, the one that is dying.
In the farm, medicine and care will be given with great attention, kindness and efficiency, those who will be there will have learned altruism instead of a frenzied individualism. And then, generally, those on farms will be healthier.
Of course, we will no longer be able to use these wonderful machines that were scanners and other MRIs. We will not have electricity for that anymore. And that is why the human genius will have to deploy in order to overcome these small difficulties.
This civilization of the farm will be the civilization of intelligence, knowledge. It will also be the civilization of human relations, real human relations. The human sciences have made very little progress, if not an impressive regression, compared to scientific progress to the end of the previous civilization, and this will have to be balanced. You still have to be a bit silly to make choices that take us all into the hole.
The civilization of the farm will be that of trade and sharing and if there are still rich and poor, it is that the rich will be those who have integrated a farm and who will have every day to eat, all that it is necessary to live, and the others, certainly smarter, who think that they can fend for themselves and who, like the cicada, will come to beg a piece of bread in winter.
The civilization of the farm will be that of horses and carriages, and the diligences will make their return.
The civilization of the farm will be one of peaceful political passions because there will be no more decisions taken away from you. Religion will be a personal affair and tolerance the basis of behavior.
We have to start building these farms now.
It takes four years to get the land, so that the mechanisms of food production, water filtration, heat production and care preparation are operational. I am not sure that the social, economic and especially the financial system of our present civilization is capable of giving us this reprieve. We just have to hope.
