What Is An Earth Democracy?

Vandana Shiva argues we need a deeper democracy called "Earth Democracy" that is practiced close to where we live.

We need a new paradigm to respond to the fragmentation caused by various forms of fundamentalism. We need a new movement, which allows us to move from the dominant and pervasive culture of violence, destruction and death to a culture of non-violence, creative peace and life. That is why in India, Navdanya started the Earth democracy movement, which provides an alternative worldview in which humans are embedded in the Earth Family, we are connected to each other through love, compassion, not hatred and violence and ecological responsibility and economic justice replaces greed, consumerism and competition as objectives of human life.

Globalgreens.org the only ones with no corporate governance influences...growing respectfully peaceful...support stand and help education....so we do repeat THE RIGHT THINGS OF HISTORY...not forget them and repeat the wrongs! "They" erasing cultures histories for centuries...is why we still are in primitive take and conquer wars! man made religions included...is not God and His many versions...the many not accepted Books destroyed and forbidden from humanity...stop the destruction of societies...to embrace our future...we can not excuse religions that harm PERIOD! THAT SHOULD BE OUT LAW NOT ENCOURAGE...is contradictory to profess religious ways that hate and support genocides and wars....is time to evolve...if it harms ...FIX IT!
