Eco-communities as a social vision

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

"Slower than guns" by Iron Butterfly, Album: Metamorphosis, 1970


Can you feel the manmade mist
As it starts to twist your lungs?
Slower than guns

Breathe deep
As you enter sleep
Fell secure it’s all around you

Can you see the golden brown
As it circles round your town
Town coming down

Smokin’ stacks on industry’s backs
In this land of a cigarette pack
Feel secure there all around you

Miles and miles of gasoline fumes
In the air like transparent tombs
Feel secure there all around you

DDT making bugs relax
There in your food like poison tacks
How about that

Eat well there all within you
Town coming down



Environmental pollution sap gradually our health either mental or body, a slow death that could't be realized easily, so people don't feel so uneasy about the future consequences of the release of new substances in the environment. Pesticides, heavy metals, CFC, fumes, smog, drugs, radiation, GMO etc will reveal their impacts decades after their disposal, so there is some kind of irresponsibility by people towards such issues. A gun is a dangerous machine because its deadly effect is immediate, what about a mobile phone/aerial, GMO or a nuclear plant?

The line is "endless lines of cigarette packs" not "in this land of ...."

And as far as I can tell, there is no end to them.
