Food System Fragility and Human Nature in Crisis – Shane Ward

Shane is a permaculturalist and agriculture consultant, and talking with him changed some of my perspectives on some big topics. In this episode he outlines that without a permanent system of agriculture, one that is truly sustainable, permanent civilization is impossible. We also talk about human nature and how it is typically misconstrued and weaponized against us. We talk about politicized science, the ecological impact of the coronavirus lockdown, which he argues that it is not big, because our agriculture has not been impeded or reformed in the midst of pandemic. Its an amazing talk I hope you enjoy it.
