There is no one right way for people to live. Rather, there are many, many ways that work—that are sustainable. Leaver agricultural systems provide good models of sustainability. We don’t have to INVENT sustainable agriculture, but the typical Taker attitude is that if we (with our mighty intellects) don’t do it, then of course it won’t get done. Rather than admit that Leaver peoples are millennia ahead of us in the field of sustainable agriculture, Takers would rather reinvent it for themselves, starting from scratch. I can’t recommend particular ventures to your attention, because it’s beyond my competence to judge their success. Even many Leaver systems proved to be unsustainable—after a few thousand years!
