Book Description

November 2000
Ecophila is an unusual and intriguing work, probing the possibilities of a future as yet unknown. With the last century just behind us, many see the new millennium as opening the door to a time of change, with a reassessment of values and an exploration of a more evolved social and political system. During the 10,000 years of the Agrarian Era, humans lived with and from the natural elements, taking only what was necessary for their own survival and that of the natural order. The Industrial Era arrived with tremendous power and little constraint. Free enterprise operated on outdated social and political concepts, and brought global calamities in its wake. Ecophila is used as a distant point of observation, a platform from which the present and the future can be appreciated. Observers of existing social and political conditions will recognize in Ecophila the direction toward which an updated democracy could well evolve. Ecophila represents the social, political and philosophical exploration of a future society governed by Nature as a creative guiding form of intelligence, addressing the most pressing issues of the moment, and offering a way forward.
