Everything was clearly better in the past, we can't even get #radioactive toothpaste anymore!
One effect of the #UkraineWar is that it gives the #US #UK #NATO #Saudi etc a case to use to rehabilitate the idea they focus on: that military power is a force of good. #AfghanWar #IraqWar #LibyaWar #YemenWar provided a template for #Putin to follow. This is really not discussed enough because people want to support Ukraine in this difficult time, but it must always be part of any discussion of providing military support. Kudos to #politico for running this political cartoon linking these.

I always had this picture of a beautiful natural setting when I thought of #organic farming. That's how it is so often portrayed. The reality in the #EU is that #organic produce comes from food factories that have the same impact on the ecosystem as any other massive factory. The whole area is paved and roofed, the soil, insect, and bird life is wiped out, and the crops are grown in highly controlled, factory conditions. Watch the industry video to see the whole picture https://vimeo.com/183478317

I've been thinking about the #city as a #desert, it is mostly devoit of plant/animal/insect/etc life, often even when there is exposed dirt. I've been working on bringing life back to a few tree pits around where I live, and it is not so easy. It was then fascinating to see this on a massive scale in this documentation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDgDWbQtlKI
