Eco-communities as a social vision
Egalitarian and ecological communities, like the pictured East Wind (www.eastwind.org), are very close to our vision of an ecological society

The Beauty Of Dead Cities


Concrete cracks, gives way to green

forests fall come glass and steel

The beauty of dead cities

the splendor of nature


Glass framed cities

untamed gardens

Wings in the meadow

asphalt hardens


Everything in its place

the duality of the natural order

An unforgiving faceless warder


Powerful green forces gray away

steel constructions lead life astray


The beauty of dead cities

the splendor of nature


Nature regains its natural place

cities absorb their needed space

The duality of the natural order



The Earthling


Children, behold the elders falling

hear nature chime, the widow calling

See that moldered face, once gazing

throughout horizons, throughout seasons


Men, behold the nature tolling

hear the depravity of man

See the sunshine blurring, once sharp and gleaming

Throughout winters, throughout summers


Nature, the venomous path of man

the existential gravity, the blinder of light

Mankind, bestride the glimpse of the Sun

instinctively oppose, the harvester of light


Elders, hear the mountains calling

behold the certainty, the leaves of future falling

See the downfall, in midst of the havoc

throughout ages, throughout generations


Nature, the venomous path of man

the existential gravity, the blinder of light

Mankind, bestride the glimpse of the Sun

instinctively oppose, the harvester of light

Dwelling the night towards further sight


I am the earthling, bearer of the past

I am the earthling, dwelling the presence

I am the earthling, exploring the future vast

I am the weaver of the Sun

I am the earthling, I am the weaver of the Sun

"Hunters Will Be Hunted" by Heaven shall burn , album: VETO (2013)



This is the end of all endurance,

No mercy for assasins
Violence against violence
And hunters will be hunted
Until the slaughter ceased to be
Believe me, you'll regret your deeds
We took a stand and won't retreat
Until their malice ceased to be
Nothing justifies your greed
You will not succeed

You shall regret your felonies

We took a stand and won't retreat
And hunters will be hunted
Until the slaughter ceased to be
Across the open seas, together through the storm
You'll make no creature bleed, nevermore, forevermore

No drawing back, direct actions strike upon you

No compromise, no giving in
Defending those who cannot fight
Justice must prevail
A campaign for relief
Across the open seas, together through the storm
You'll make no creature bleed, nevermore

I looked him straight in the eye

This moment of compassion
I found my mission in life
We send them to the bottom
Forevermore


An anti-hunt song with brutal lyrics and a very beautiful and meaningful video clip:

Neil Young - The monsanto years, album (2015)



"Monsanto Years"

You never know what the future holds in the shallow soil of Monsanto, Monsanto
The moon is full and the seeds are sown while the farmer toils for Monsanto, Monsanto
When these seeds rise they're ready for the pesticide
And Roundup comes and brings the poison tide of Monsanto, Monsanto


The farmer knows he's got to grow what he can sell, Monsanto, Monsanto

So he signs a deal for GMOs that makes life hell with Monsanto, Monsanto
Every year he buys the patented seeds
Poison-ready they're what the corporation needs, Monsanto


When you shop for your daily bread and walk the aisles of Safeway, Safeway

Find the package to catch your eye that makes you smile at Safeway, at Safeway
Choose a picture of an old red barn on a field of green
With the farmer and his wife and children to complete the scene at Safeway, at Safeway


Dreams of the past come flooding back to the farmer's mind, his mother and father

Family seeds they used to save were gifts from God, not Monsanto, Monsanto
Their own child grows ill near the poisoned crops
While they work on, they can't find an easy way to stop, Monsanto, Monsanto


Don't care now what the Bible said so long ago not Monsanto, Monsanto

Give us this day our daily bread and let us not go with Monsanto, Monsanto
The seeds of life are not what they once were
Mother Nature and God don't own them anymore

The Monsanto Years is the thirty-sixth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young, released on June 29, 2015 on Reprise Records. A concept album criticizing agribusiness Monsanto, the album is a collaboration with Willie Nelson's sons Lukas and Micah, alongside Lukas' bandmates in Promise of the Real.

"A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop"

If you don't like to rock Starbucks A coffee shop
Well you better change your station 'cause that ain't all that we got
Yeah, I want a cup of coffee but I don't want a GMO
I like to start my day off without helping Monsanto

Monnnnnn-sannnnnn-toooooooo
Let our farmers grow what they want to grow

From the fields of Nebraska to the banks of the Ohio
The farmers won't be free to grow what they want to grow
When corporate control takes over the American farm
With fascist politicians and chemical giants walking arm in arm

Monnnnnn-sannnnnn-toooooooo
Let our farmers grow what they want to grow

When the people of Vermont wanted to label food with GMOs
So that they could find out what was in what the farmer grows
Monsanto and Starbucks through the Grocery Manufacturers Alliance
They sued the state of Vermont to overturn the people's will

Monnnnnn-sannnnnn-toooooooo (and Starbucks)
Mothers want to know what they feed their children

Monnnnnn-sannnnnn-toooooooo
Let our farmers grow what they want to grooooooow


"A Rock Star Bucks a Coffee Shop" is a protest song aimed at Starbucks and Monsanto recorded by Neil Young that has attracted world-wide attention. It is a criticism of Starbucks. It's about Starbucks and its alleged use of GM food. The lyrics include "I want a cup of coffee but I don't want a GMO," Young sings. "I'd like to start my day off without helping Monsanto." In the song there were references to the lawsuit by Monsanto which is against Vermont because the state and its attempt to pass a GMO labeling law. It also mentions “the poison tide of Monsanto” and about a farmer who signs a GMO deal. In a brief review on the song, Stephan Schmidt of The National in the Singles Roundup said: The album’s opening track, A Rock Star Bucks a Coffee Shop, does not pull any punches, attacking Starbucks as well as Monsanto and suggesting Young has not lost his appetite for tackling the big issues of the moment

An acoustic version of the song was debuted in Maui, Hawaii by Young and his backing band called The Promise of The Real. The reason for it being done there was to bring to attention the attention to Monsanto’s destructive practices in Hawaii. Paul Towers of the Pesticide Action Network said that Hawaii was the global epicenter for GMO seed testing.

Cattle Decapitation "Manufactured Extinct", album: The Anthropocene Extinction (2015)


In the beginning of this, the anthropocene era
Life was pristine, resonating impact …the instigator’s arrival
Densely populating smashing biodiversity

Altered climate accelerating exacerbated by our human activities

We used it up, we wore it out, we made it do what we could have done without

Machines to make machines fabricating the end of all living things
Sacrificing all morality, the ends never justify the means

Technology defines the ages - Our human history burns its own pages

Under the sun and in the light of day we throw this all away
Instinctual devotion to annihilation
Eradication, mass predation - manufactured extinction
The powers that be are you and me

These enemies of inconvenience = undertakers

Entire species erased
Millions of acres defaced
Nonrenewable

Fuck this flesh
Curating distress
Composing our dirge
True nature emerged

Under the sun and in plain sight a tragedy has been designed
by hands of cultures intertwined in greed and cruel ways of life

The Anthropocene Extinction is the upcoming seventh studio album of American deathgrind band Cattle Decapitation. It is set to be release on August 7, via Metal Blade Records. The last record, Monolith of Inhumanity, dealt with future of Earth, if mankind keep its current style of life. The Anthropocene Extinction now deals with the results of mankinds influence on the environment, such as the Great Pacific garbage patch.

"Harakiri" by Serj Tankian, album "harakiri" 2012


We're the day birds
Deciding to fly against the sky
Within our dreams, we all wake up
To kiss the ones who are born to die

We're the greying herds
Hurting each other with our lies
Within our dreams, we all wake up
To kiss the ones who are born...
Born to die
Born to die

The drum fish
They beached themselves in Harakiri
The blackbirds
They fell in thousands from the sky
Their red wings
Streaming down from the higher seas
Deflected by the ground
They crowned the sun

They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
But I believe that they are FREE
When their time was done (Their time was done)
They were drowned by the only one (They crowned the sun)
But I believe that they are FREE
Washed by the sun

Our statues
The soaring edifice of our times
Detracted from the ways of the wise
The future will view all history as a crime
So father, tell us when is the time to rise

They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
But I believe that they are FREE
When their time was done (Their time was done)
They were drowned by the only one (They crowned the sun)
But I believe that they are FREE

We're the day birds
Deciding to fly against the sky
Within our dreams, we all wake up
To kiss the ones who are born to die

We're the greying herds
Hurting each other with our lies
Within our dreams, we all wake up
To kiss the ones who are born...
Born to die

They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
But I believe that they are free
When their time was done (Their time was done)
They were drowned by the only one (They crowned the sun)
But I believe that they are free
They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
But I believe that they are free
And we believe that they are free
Cause I believe that they are me
Washed by the sun

"The Eye Of The Eagle" by U.D.O., album: "Mission Nº X" (2005)


Mother nature comforts us
Embraces to her breast
Fields of gold and icy plains
We feel her great caress
Cocooned by earthly majesty
A cosmic jewel in time
Surrounded by a giving sun
It's good to be alive
Pasture lands and silver streams
Finger through the land
Magnify the hopes and dreams
Moving living sand
Canyons wind and trembled winds
Mountains touch the sky
It's nature's breath we all depend
It's good to be alive
Oh - the eye of the eagle
Oh - finds it all
Oh - the eye of the eagle
Oh - sees it all
Sounds of silence fill the air
A diamond in your palm
The elements in harmony
Innocent and calm
So stand alone and touch the stars
Heaven will be kind
Feel the love of brotherhood
So good to be alive
Towering woods of dignity
Oceans giving birth
Arose a host of energy
A hail to mother earth
Never blind the eagles' eyes
Keep wind beneath their wings
Living free and soaring high
Good to be alive

"Native Blood" by Testament (2012) album: Dark Roots of Earth


Whenever I stumble, whenever I fall
Whenever I’m pushed against the wall
This white man’s world won’t tell me what to do

Nowhere to run my native blood
I wanna reach and touch the Sun
Blistering my soul but I can’t feel
You hear me say, get out of my way
I’ll do it my own way
Cross my path and get what you deserve

I’m warning this world
To stay out of my way
My voice will be heard
I'm alone
I won’t be afraid
I got something to say
My voice will be heard
So loud
Native blood

Forever proud
So God damn loud
It’s me alone against the crowd
Right or wrong it's the road that I must choose
There’s no excuse
Attitude
Got something here that I must prove
Live to win instead of born to lose

I’m warning this world
To stay out of my way
My voice will be heard
So strong
I won’t be afraid
I got something to say
My voice will be heard
So loud
native blood

I never learned to walk
Before I could crawl
Whenever pushed
I push back
Not afraid to throw the first punch
I’m never wrong cause I’m always right
When I’m wrong, I won’t admit it
Like the person your mother warned you about
They broke the mold after I came out
What gives me strength is my beliefs

Whenever I stumble, whenever I fall
I won’t be pushed against the wall
This white man’s world won’t tell me what to do

Nowhere to run, native blood
I wanna reach and touch the Sun
Blistering my soul but I can’t feel

I’m warning this world
To stay out of my way
My voice will be heard
I'm alone
I won’t be afraid
I got something to say
My voice will be heard
So loud
native blood

I’m warning this world
To stay out of my way
My voice will be heard
So strong
Oh I won’t be afraid
I got something to say
My voice will be heard
So loud
Native blood

My native blood
My native blood
My native blood

Solidarity to Turkish Uprising and Resistance


Two songs about the brave resistance of Turks for ecology and freedom



 And an older with a prophetic verse

 
Istanbul, Istanbul, 
We'll kill the fear Mother dear, 
I'm strong tonight, 
like an anarchy 
Your dark eyes are now my flag

The woman in red becomes a symbol of peaceful protest and resistance towards the raw police brutality:
