Mainstream madness and its alternatives

The following dialogue continues an on-going cyber-discussion between two cultural philosophers, Dr. Sherry Ackerman and Dr. Guy McPherson.

My whole thrust lately has been re-skilling — to learn the simple, creative techniques that my grandparents knew for growing food, home repairs, resource conservation, making clothing, and preparing herbal medicines.

My idea of preparing for the future is to relearn skills from a simpler, saner time when neighbors helped neighbors (instead of hiring professionals for every little job), and bread was eaten straight from the oven — still warm.
