Regenerators, younger and previous, given our present state of affairs, have to function on the previous adage that “the darkest hour is true earlier than the daybreak.” As a substitute of simply dwelling on the detrimental, on the issues that divide or frighten us, we have to get your hands on and spotlight at the moment’s optimistic developments, finest practices, and options. For the OCA and Regeneration Worldwide neighborhood this implies not simply specializing in the newest corruption and criminality of the ruling class and the technocrats, not simply the delusions and self-destructive conduct of these brainwashed by the Institution narrative, however on discovering, highlighting, and scaling up actual life regenerative alternate options.
As we inform ourselves and resist the Nice Reset, the Massive Pharma energy seize, Silicon Valley programming and censorship, the Ukraine battle and limitless battle, the reckless science, the air pollution of our meals, the destruction of the surroundings and local weather, and the mass confusion, concern, and psychosis that has debilitated a lot of the physique politic; we should additionally get your hands on and spotlight the optimistic developments in grassroots insurgency and creativity. We should hunt down, spotlight, and take part in the perfect practices of natural and regenerative meals, farming, and land use, in addition to the holistic pure well being practices, meals and dietary adjustments, and life-style transformations which can be regenerating individuals’s well being, psychological and bodily. For a full dose of optimistic data, go to the inner search engine on the higher proper hand facet of the OCA homepage and sort within the phrases Regenerative Meals and Farming.
Even in these alarming and authoritarian occasions a essential mass of the worldwide grassroots is beginning to get up, join the dots, and resist—North, South, East, and West—self-organizing on the native and grassroots stage. This decentralized and non-violent grassroots rising, usually ignored by the mass media, is slowly however absolutely growing a parallel society and counter-culture, an infrastructure of different data and grassroots practices, providing wholesome and equitable options to our most urgent issues: meals, farming, local weather, poverty, injustice, environmental air pollution, battle, reckless science and genetic engineering, deteriorating public well being, pressured migration, unemployment, discrimination, and political corruption.
The underside line is that individuals everywhere in the world are fed up with corrupt politicians, grasping companies and companies, organized crime, reckless scientists, transhumanist profiteers, and a polluted surroundings. Whether or not we’re speaking about China, Russia, or the U.S., most on a regular basis individuals not belief the federal government, the mass media, nor the oligarchs to behave or govern in our greatest pursuits. As a rising phase of Millennial youth, girls, and minorities are beginning to perceive, there isn’t a future for his or her era, nor for any of us, with out basic change and Regeneration.
A rising international majority perceive that we merely can’t proceed to keep up our nations’ respective international empires or spheres of curiosity, in our case the US, and permit our governments to subsidize fossil fuels, the military-industrial advanced, Massive Pharma malpractice and profiteering, and degenerative meals, farming, and land administration practices, if we want to survive. Nor can we proceed with the multinational company elites’ “revenue at any price” practices, bolstered by hyper-consumerism and materialism on the a part of most shoppers.
As a substitute of rallying behind politicians who demonize different nations or religions, deny that polluted meals, power illness, medical malpractice, local weather change, or different critical international points exist, pander to large companies, or harp on divisive single-issues, we should collectively acknowledge that we, the worldwide grassroots, are “all one” in our want for a livable surroundings, secure local weather, equitable economic system, significant employment, peace, and democracy. Specializing in deploying, financing, and scaling up renewable vitality and regenerative meals, farming, land use and well being practices, a lot of that are already in place, or partially in place, we’ve got the ability to reignite hope, activism, and participatory democracy on the international grassroots, and thereby regain management over our future.
What we’d like as a way to save ourselves from catastrophe is clearly not a classical revolutionary insurgency, a frontal assault on the Kremlin, the Chinese language Communist Social gathering headquarters, or the White Home. Within the twenty first Century this kind of armed revolution is unattainable, provided that we the individuals are actually completely underneath surveillance, policed, and out-gunned. What we’d like as an alternative is a non-violent however decided “March of Regeneration” that strikes by way of all of our communities and establishments, a peaceable however forceful international grassroots rebellion from under in the entire 195 international locations of the world.
We want a non-violent Regeneration Revolution on a world scale of public schooling, grassroots lobbying, market strain, and scaling-up of finest practices, techniques, and insurance policies, particularly within the vitality, meals, farming, land use, and well being sectors. We have to deal with the foundation causes of “mass formation” and mass psychosis (loneliness, social isolation, cellphone and social media dependancy, alienating jobs, poor diets, lack of train, lack of pleasure) which have just lately come very near completely turning us in opposition to each other and destroying the potential for a peaceable and regenerative future.
Given the overwhelming energy of the Institution and their forces of surveillance, intimidation, and repression, we might want to fastidiously develop and deploy our new Regeneration program or ideology as a type of jujitsu or martial artwork with the ability to peacefully divide, coopt, deprogram, pacify, and conquer our political and company adversaries. As we outsmart and out- maneuver the worldwide Institution, we are going to regenerate the well being and life-giving optimism of the physique politic. However we aren’t out of hazard but. We stand within the eye of the hurricane.
A fastidiously deployed marketing campaign of truth-telling and resistance will allow us to move off quick catastrophe (“Biofascism”) and purchase us the time we have to additional unfold our redemptive message. In our lengthy march to revive neighborhood, well being, surroundings, peace, solidarity, love, and compassion we are going to steadily achieve the ability to encourage and unite, throughout points and borders, a essential mass of the worldwide grassroots. This is not going to solely regenerate our society, however our optimism and our consciousness as properly, restoring, as Pope Francis as soon as put it, “an consciousness of our widespread origin, of our mutual belonging, and of a future to be shared with everybody.”
Please be a part of us on this local-to-global March for Regeneration. The hour is late, however there may be nonetheless time to show issues round.
