[PDF / Epub] ⚣ Green Wizardry ✈ John Michael Greer – Tactical-player.co.uk

Green Wizardry This book was useful as a framework but in terms of the actual skills however I feel confident i already knew much of what he was talking about The part i benefitted most from was his identification of three strands of thinking or styles of appropriate technology from the 1970s etc i d never seen that before and it s helped to develop my thinking about what approaches to take with my own urban homesteading whilst keeping the other foot in the real world and the cash economy You have to balance what appeals to your sensibilities with what is suitable for the socio economic conditions I suppose i prefer down home funk as i m generally pessimistic regarding how technology can diminish rather than extend human beings potential However going for the Retrofit style might be realistic, even if what i m trying to retrofit to might be shifting substantially in the years ahead New Alchemy is closest to the current technophile zeitgeist so doing projects along those lines might cross subsidise the other two. Excellent introduction to the necessary rethink of our survival tactics as the industrial world we have grown up with disappears, the supply chain breaks down and the consumer grid we are trapped in becomes a prison. A really helpful guide to LESS as a way of surviving the times ahead To find out what LESS stands for, you will have to read the book.
