When we think about food freedom (or indeed, permaculture), we tend to think about growing vegetables, and in this class we explore how profoundly distracting & misleading this can be.
The sicknesses of civilization, such as diabetes, depression, obesity, mental illnesses, and many others, don’t exist, or are very rare in indigenous cultures. Nowadays there is much confusion about what is healthy, and it’s pretty clear that sickness is big business. How did this happen? What is the solution?
Very few people realize that each generation of civilized humans is weaker, more deformed and more prone to sickness than the last. In this class we explore why that is, and also how this is related to other patterns of oppression.
In the Patrix (from Patriarchy), food industry is a very good business. Since we are born, we’re plugged to this patrix of industrial food, and we become addicted. Yet euphoria is our natural state when we are healthy: our brains naturally segregate hormones and neurotransmitters that make us feel good. The drugs we are addicted to (most notably sugar, in its many forms) keep us sleeping, numb, in order to not feel pain, but they also numb our ability to feel happiness and our intelligence.
To free our plates and our economies from multinationals we have to, in the first place, understand which mental model of the economy we are using, and then make the changes necessary by asking the right questions. Here we start with exploring why an example of the answer to a wrong question is “to live without money”.
We explore the work of several integral pioneering women of eco-economics & how common mis-conceptions about food & health are – surprizingly – at the core of how the system stays in place.
