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

“Mother Gaia” by Stratovarius, album: Infinite (2000)

Time waits for no one
So they say
It goes on forever
The tears of pain
I see in your eyes
How can we change for the better?

Hate and greed`s getting stronger day by day
Injustice rules the world
Killing the lungs of the Earth
How far are we prepared to go?

I have seen the Light
It came into my life
There's no second chance
We should have learned by now
But it's not too late to change the course
There's so much more than this,
oh Mother Gaia

Can you see,
can you feel all the beauty
that we have in this world?
There's so much to see, forever
Ignorance, arrogance
Keep us from being ourselves
so we just follow our leaders – Why

A lament for the destruction of our planet and a call to take responsibility for reversing the tide. No matter the sad attitude of the song, the message is optimistic: It’s not too late to rise against our ignorance, inactiveness, and our submission to corrupted authorities.

You can hear this beautiful power ballad in youtube
