    Dear friend Kostas, quoting you to me: Its critical that we act, on a worldwide effort to change agriculture as it is practiced today, and to plant billions
    Message 1 of 9 , Feb 7, 2011
      Dear friend Kostas,

      quoting you to me:
      "Its critical that we act, on a worldwide effort to change agriculture as it is
      practiced today, and to plant billions of trees in order to have a place for us
      and our children on this planet."

      My reply:
      'You're telling me! '
      (the dictionary defintion of this vernacular English: informal used
      to emphasize that one is already well aware of something or in complete
      agreement with a statement.)

      —what i've been 'acting' doing in successful nature restoration practises
      myself, in educating adults, the young and children, in advocating and in
      banging on about (vernacular English meaning: saying) for more than 25 years
      here in south eastern Oz.

      At once both critically and as a rave, i must add saying that all the more
      urgency and importance, has:
      personal action alone in one's own nature farm or nature garden practise,
      without any other kinds of action, is not enough (scholarly: it gets called
      mindless empiricism) to avert 'collapse' at this late stage in *human material
      affluence multiplied by growth* history (IPAT for those who know it).
      'Acting' doing: That i take for granted in my own practical life, as i have done
      and my late father had done, for the last 25 or more years.
      Spreading the messages:
      All the way to the depths of the philosophical message(s);
      Right all the way back up to the shallow softly softly introductory messages to
      encourage everyone;
      (and continuing the metaphor of going in all available directions of depth,
      shallowness, across ways -width, breadth, and height):
      Critically piercing or cutting across all the way through all those which we
      know inside-our-hearts-at-least are bullshit philosophies, propaganda, marketing
      horse-shit, empty ideologies, racialism, false evidences, pseudo-religions,
      pseudo-sciences, political spin and obscurantism crap, all which we've (i at
      least have) all had shoved in our faces, which have been making the general
      population, nearly everyone recently in the 'western' influenced world at least,
      obscured from reality, from each of our sovereignties, from real robust respect
      (which necessarily is mutual)
      and have been making the general population, nearly everyone recently in the
      'western' influenced world at least, 'skeptical' of the truths of all these
      messages; (and)
      –have been being obscured, blinded and skeptical of those natural messages, of
      liberating ourselves to reach back to each of our own 'inner already known'
      great heights (enlightenment)
      – each of our own birth-rite personal sovereignties on which this inner
      enlightenment founds itself;
      in the way that late Mr. Fukuoka Masanobu sensei and Dr. Vandana Shiva do so
      well, for two critical examples;
      (this: –has all the more urgency and importance.)


      Biggest best wishes to all,

      Jason Stewart

      Thanks Jason,
      we needed this info put together in this manner - its good work.
      its good to know that Antony is a member of this group.
      Its critical that we act, on a worldwide effort to change agriculture as it is
      practiced today, and to plant billions of trees in order to have a place for us
      and our children on this planet.

              Hi Jason,

              I did not mean to "tell you" - I think sometimes, I speak/write to hear my self speak i.e. to give orders to myself, certainly not to anyone else.

              We all do the best we can, and we should be thank full for what we are able to accomplish.

              Thank you Kostas, I agree – in complete agreement with a statement. – both your sentences below and the previous email message. Sorry the wording of the
              Message 6 of 9 , Feb 8, 2011
                Thank you Kostas,

                I agree –"in complete agreement with a statement."– both your sentences below
                and the previous email message.

                Sorry the wording of the words after that, quoting:
                "'You're telling me! '(the dictionary defintion of this vernacular English:
                informal used
                to emphasize that one is already well aware of something or in complete

                agreement with a statement.)"
                – in the rest of my reply was rather pithy –i've always been really busy–, and
                pithy (or terse or dense) language is quick for my own perhaps–vain attempts to
                articulate deep points, but pithy (or terse or dense) language isn't much good
                for readers who haven't already 'seen for themselves' what one is talking about,
                such as who are on a part of or a different learning curve.
                This is why personal face-to-face communication is so much better communication
                –one of the many reasons why.


                Biggest best wishes to all,

                Jason Stewart
                —in practice (at the moment in summer season) in the nature farm,

                Hi Jason,

                I did not mean to "tell you" - I think sometimes, I speak/write to hear my self
                speak i.e. to give orders to myself, certainly not to anyone else.

                We all do the best we can, and we should be thank full for what we are able to
                accomplish.
