So that our children have a future
DIDIER LAINARD SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 8, 2019
The essential goal of the association "the farms of life" is to create the conditions allowing young people and children to build a future commensurate with their ambitions, their desires and their capacities.
This civilization is dying and its fall is likely to be brutal and final, dragging with it billions of human beings.
This risk is amplified every day a little more by catastrophic human decisions as well as by the domino effects caused by changes in the climate, depleted arable land, end-of-life fossil resources and living organisms that are seriously damaged.
It is useless to try to predict the moment of the fall of our civilization which will continue on its way by amplifying its drifts.
The only possible way is to prepare humans to live in the new conditions which will be very different from those we are experiencing today.
Of course, the path we are going to have to take is narrow, difficult and full of pitfalls.
But, if we accept to live with nature and not against it, we will quickly realize that the living conditions are not that bad and could even be, most of the time, 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 characteristics of our future environment.
Create the civilization of the farm.
We will prepare farms.
On these farms there are no tractors or agricultural machinery. The farm is far too small. Its surface is one hectare, or 100 m by 100 m. The only tools will be a dibble and a claw.
No torture machines for the backs of gardeners and the earth that are forks, shovels, weeders and watering cans.
The farm will produce vegetables, chickens, eggs, chickens, rabbits, fruit, and plenty of good food. And she will be able to feed five hundred people and even a little more. In permaculture, this is called a surplus 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 more water at the taps.
The farm will cook food and canning, but since we will no longer have electricity, gas or charcoal, we will use wood.
And since there is very little forest in France, you will have to be very careful about the amount of wood consumed. It will be the only energy available. The forests will have to be protected and enlarged.
The farm, finally some, will cultivate medicinal plants, mushrooms to make medicines. And some farms will turn these plants into medicine, most of which is as effective as the ones we have today which often come from plants.
On the farm, the children will go to school to learn to read, write, count and above all to learn about life and not to repeat the mistakes of the previous civilization, the one that is dying.
On the farm, medicine and care will be dispensed with great care, kindness and efficiency, those who will be there will have learned altruism instead of frenzied individualism. And generally speaking, those who are on farms will be healthier.
Of course, we will no longer be able to use those wonderful machines that used to be scanners and MRI scans. We will no longer have electricity for this. 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, in relation to scientific progress until the end of the previous civilization and it will be necessary to balance that. It must still be a little silly to make choices that will take us all in the hole.
The farm civilization will be the civilization of the book because there are no more these wonderful machines, which were computers, mobile phones, televisions and electric motors or explosions. And it will be necessary to think of extracting computers, servers, all those knowledge produced grannly by millions of writers and researchers and who will forever lost if we do not do this job to throw them on paper with a Intelligent indexing to find it easily.
The civilization of the farm will be that of the exchanges and sharing and if there are still rich and the poor 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 more clever, who think they can fend for himself and who, like the cicada will come to beg a piece of bread winter come.
The farm civilization will be the horses and carriages, and the diligences will make their return.
The civilization of the farm will be that of the political passions appeased because there will be no more decisions are far from you. Religion will be a personal affair and tolerance the basis of behavior.
You have to start now building these farms.
It takes four years to get the grounds, so that the food production, water filtration, heat production and care preparation mechanisms are operational. I am not sure that the social, economic system and especially the financial system of our current civilization is able to give us this reprieve. You just have to hope.
