Hello all, I have been following Urban Scout's adventures for over a year now. The time between has been an attempt to rationalize how I fit into the big picture of the Earth's fate. I still am contemplating this, but analysis has yet to put me into action other than to provide continuous support for organizations like Defenders of Wildlife and the Environmental Defense Fund on some issues and teach others about what it means to be sustainable.
I was once a member of the Derrick Jensen forum and then got banned for expressing too much frustration, disregarding how every user tried to help me overcome certain things. Had I not been banned, I still would be misunderstanding the use of even language as an abusive and unsustainable tool; I took people's advice, but never returned anything back. What a terrible thing that was for me so insensitive to be doing!
There is no denying that a culture that requires an importation of resources from somewhere else everyday is unsustainable and I am actually quite surprised that the present day civilization has yet to cease to exist. I don't exactly plan on completely rewilding mySELF, but rather continue to support these movements that makes rewilding a more feasible option. Though there are ways for me to enjoy life and music, in the end, MY life does not matter. I live to do what I must to make the world saner and die so that things were left better than found...
I will be spending my time here for the next couple months reading articles linked from rewilding.info and listening to what others have to say. I want to try and keep an open mind to anything that I believe I could be an asset to.
Good luck to everyone,
