An Essay for Permaculture's People: in addendum to An Exorcist's Paradigm By anonymous Australian indigenous Christian author
eBook (ePub): $8.50
An essay, a few poems, and an oddly assorted set of other writing, all working within the emphasis of enabling us to regard the potential for global warming to have been caused by the excessive... More > criminalization of humanity. Specifically, as with the first volume of An Exorcist's Paradigm, this work points to an economic over reliance upon finding addicts at fault for economic failures, (as well as for the successes of corrupt economies) as the base line fault, we normally avoid stating since it is already so overstated in the collective human subconsciousness. This work stirs up some of the muck of what the problems we all face have been, and points to Aboriginal Australian culture as having sustainable solutions. The solutions are not overtly stated, because I believe that solutions work better when each individual need seek and claim a solution within their own life story, and from within their own internal mind. However problems are certainly exposed as issues which need be collectively prevented.< Less

Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book. About the author: Catherine "Katie" Langloh Parker (1 May 1856 – 27... More > March 1940) was a writer who lived in northern New South Wales in the late nineteenth century.She is best known for recording the stories of the Aboriginal people around her. As their culture was in decline, because of pressure by European settlers, her testimony is one of the best accounts we have of the beliefs and stories of the Aboriginal people of north-west New South Wales at that time. However, her accounts reflect European prejudices of the time, and so to modern ears her accounts contain a number of misconceptions and racist comments.
