Making Peace with the Earth

Beyond Resource, Land and Food Wars

Summary

Wars in the 21st century are wars against the earth; against natural resources like water, soil, forests, minerals and seeds. The global corporate economy based on the idea of limitless growth has become a war economy.

Trade wars. Water wars. Food wars.

Corporate control violates all ethical and ecological limits. It promotes industrial development that entails the enforced appropriation of land, rivers, mountains; agribusinesses that deplete nature’s diversity, and land-grab. Exploitation of this order incurs the kind of ecological and economic debt that is unsustainable, unbailable and unbearable.

Making Peace with the Earth outlines how a paradigm shift to earth-centred politics and economics is our only chance of survival; and how collective resistance to corporate exploitation can open the way to a new environmentalism of interdependence and earth democracy.
