Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

From The Guardian: Is it Worth It To Fight For Industrial Society?

Is there any point in fighting to stave off industrial apocalypse?
The collapse of civilisation will bring us a saner world, says Paul Kingsnorth. No, counters George Monbiot – we can't let billions perish.

For some reason this debate puts me in mind of the Titanic. Buckle your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy night.

If it's going to become the new Dark Ages, I vote to be an Irish monk. They kept the flame of civilization alive throughout the wreckage of the Roman Empire.
