Primal Culture vs Modern Culture and Their Relationships With Nature

Is it possible that primal culture could have or may become the dominant culture?

If primal culture were to become dominant, what would our world look like?

New Version: On Legitimate and Illegitimate Protest

Ok all you babblers,

I have heard from many people who read the original version of this piece. In response to all your thoughts, I significantly reworked it to include new ideas that people shared with me and to clarify the most important ways we need to build solidarity right now.

Given the ongoing need for unity as we continue to work to get our friends out of jail, get all the charges dropped, and build the movement from within, seems like a good time to post this new and updated version.
