Eco-communities as a social vision

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

Corrosion Of Conformity

A socio-politically orientated band that has started in early 80s playing punk rock and since early 90’s has played progressive metal

Poison Planet, Album: Eye to Eye, 1983

Because you're old and rich
You don't care about this earth
Only about your filthy profits

Poisoned Planet nuclear war
It's not you're problem anymore

The problems belong to your generation
The consequences to mine
You've spoiled my chances
and robbed me of my time

Bodies piled in rotting heaps
Mass-destruction empty streets

Martial law declared
nothing left to rule
Death will soon come
to the surviving few

Why should we pay the consequences?

A punk song with simple and clear views about pollution and war causes: The lust for profits. But the consequences of today’s wrong choices will affect strongly future generations.

Technocracy, Album: Technocracy, 1989

This ecological atrocity finally
caves in on itself...
perhaps it's all for the better

Lock your doors and say goodnight
As toxins leach out of sight
We're living in the new age
Of electronic security

Technocracy probable cause
Technocracy bending some laws

Living in fear
Making something of yourself
is making fifty grand a year

The technology that spawned
Our every convenience
Creating more and more poison
Pledge of toxic allegience

Technocracy probable cause
Technocracy bending laws

All American clones
On and on their sermon drones
Rabbit at your career
It goes on all around you
Part of this insanity
Working for the technocracy

Technocracy probable cause
Technocracy bending some laws

There are limits to growth on this planet
but there is no limit to your green or potential to exploit...
the end of suffering or just an eternal scream

A song about the uncontrolled expansion of technology for the wasteful use of natural sources and improvident development. In the last lines the band marks exactly this: The necessity to put limits to the lust for profits and exploitation of nature

This won't really have effect, I consider like this.
