Some agroecology claims:
* Agroecology helps humanity relink itself with nature
* Agroecology rebuts the predatory logic of nature’s use as a commodity and production resource
* Agroecology is not just alternative to green capitalism, but an alternative to capitalism itself
* Agroecology is what allows movements of struggle for land to exist
* Any serious struggle movement must have agroecology as its mode of production
@lollonero @mike_hales @nicksellen I haven't heard the name before, but found this article and definitely looks worth exploring. https://www.fifthestate.org/archive/348-fall-1996/beyond-bookchin-excerpts/ . Thanks!
I've not read a lot of Bookchin but I do remember something of the persistent calls to rationality as niggling at me.
@flancian Good shout!
I guess I'm currently not sure what I gain from inline transclusion.
Comes from a position of having not tried it though - not from a position of 'I have and didn't like it'.
e.g. - why pull a link inline rather than clicking to visit? Is it purely a preference of a top-to-bottom document structure versus forward/back navigation?
I should give it a go and get some feels for it
@flancian Like a filter on backlinks to a node maybe? Backlinks by user?
I did start doing that - linking to specific sections of the book. But I fizzled out at some point and just linked to the top-level [[Free, Fair and Alive]] - not sure which is better - wdyt?
@cyberneticpond Welcome! Viable systems and liberation theology, very interesting topics. Interested to learn more on those.
@vera Precisely! That's a massive value of the agora to me, an easy to find bunch of opinionated writing on a topic by people you already know.
TIL about https://lichess.org/ , one of the world's most popular chess servers, run entirely on free software by a nonprofit, ad-free, supported by donations with a budget of ~$420K/year according to https://lichess.org/costs
They've been around since 2010.
As awesome as this is to see, imagine how many free/open nonprofit alternatives to Big Tech platforms would exist if, down to the municipal level, we decided to support them with funding & infrastructure.
Hmm I might rephrase - 'when I'm first deciding whether to learn about X'...
@therealraccoon Thanks! Is this book an example of agroecology to your mind? It's a newish term to me so am building up a mental model.
