Every successful community that ever existed depended on food security.

Successful communities created the only known universal consciousness, the living surface and global mind of our unique planet.

Then came fantasy. The modern world has been fantastically successful with the introduction of fantasy. No need to concern ourselves with our own waste, be it matter or energy. No need to protect the fragile heat sensitive ecosystems responsible for life. Fantasy has won. Almost everyone is addicted to it. 

Following fantasy comes reality. Every year a record heating event, and this is apparently only from the C02 emitted in the 1970s when our C02 absorbing forests still existed.

Massive population and temperature increases were predicted to cause contagion, and coronavirus may soon arrive with our millions of visitors. Two weeks later it may have spread throughout the community, particularly effecting markets, festivals, shopping centres, health centres, cafes and schools – wherever people gather. Compromised transport systems and the collapsing tourism sector will mean catastrophe. Establish food gardens and food distribution immediately as if your life depended on it. Think globally, act locally.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
