The Gnu Party supports the restoration of the “Deme” from which we get “democracy. A Deme is a coop farm owned by the citizens who go out from time to time to help, where they grow the food the citizens want they way they want it grown.
Each citizen owns a share of the harvest, as we see now in community gardens. But these farms should be placed in gerrymandered districts and have housing for parents to get their kids out of drug infested neighborhoods. Of course, parents and others in the Deme should be registered to vote, which will destroy the political party control gerrymandering was setup to provide.
Hope you are well. I have included you in the list of SQSwans: people whose research and info contributed to Ecology of Peace principles.
If you got links to more info on the GNU party, or your website; I can add that too. I don’t remember your websites url.

You are too kind & generous Lara. Nobody seems to want to post on the FB Gnu Party page, and I dont still think anything will come of it or any other political party any more. http://realbigbird.com is pretty crude (I await a Wacom tablet to do better graphics with) but is an example of the scale of investment coping with climate catastrophe will take.
The system is too corrupt and incompetent to be reformed. The only question is what to do for those you care about. I’m working on an antique 73 Chevy 4X4 to load up to move to an even more hidden location if need be in my neck of Ozark woods. Also working on a solar system & batteries to keep me going if the grid goes down. And an even bigger garden.
Some of the FB GNU party info – collective organic farming, etc — and PIE – ancient Aryan yeoman farming lifestyles – may be useful; ; for others searching for alternative ways of living.
Re: Corrupt Incompetent System. You may be correct, it is too late. I think there is still a 2-5 year window of opportunity for an EoP intnl law social contract to be implemented that restricts all citizens to breeding and consuming below ecological carrying capacity limits, and humanely and orderly removes breeding/consumption cheaters from the planetary genepool. If so, such an EoP SC shall enable humane and orderly deindustrialization and depopulation, which shall have a massive effect on reforestation — http://ss-defcon.tygae.org.za/2011/01/20-jan-pongratz-genghiskhan-green/ — and consequently carbon sequestration, biodiversity and climate change.
However, if that window of opportunity closes, or has already closed, then it is true. Time to make departure plans. I have also been making departure plans, just in case, the EoP social contract efforts don’t work out.
Info on the different options for implementing an EoP social contract can be found at eop-nwo-sco.tygae.org.za.
Hope you are well.
