  The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers

The Question (ID Number 47)...

    Is Ishmael saying we should give up agriculture?

    ...and the response:

    As Ishmael says again and again, many Leaver peoples practiced agriculture. Its only our special style of agriculture, found only in our culture, that is problematic. It's problematic because it's based on the idea that all the food in the world belongs to humans, and we're free to destroy any other creature---to the point of extinction, if we wish---that tries to compete with us for that food.
