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

Album "E Pluribus Funk" by Grand Funk Railroad (1971)


Loneliness cries deep from my soul,
Keeps trying to tell me about the world growing so cold.
Too many people trying to take from my Earth,
But we can't live without controlling our birth.

Deep inside a voice cries out for you,
It's not alone 'cause, people, I been cryin' too.
If we don't stop what we all see is wrong,
I guarantee you mankind won't live long.

There's a land, a glorius land,
It's right here on Earth.
Understand what you can from the land,
Your life is it's worth.
Woah-oh, woah-oh, woah-oh-oh.
Woah-oh, woah-oh, woah-oh-oh.
Woah-oh, woah-oh, woah-oh-oh.

To face the problems that everyone's found,
We must replace what we took out of the ground.
Pray for your brother, let your soul find a way,
Help one another, oh, please listen to what I say.


Loneliness ...
Oh ..., I can't get away from loneliness ...
Yeah, loneliness ... oooo ...
Loneliness ...
Yeah, loneli- ... loneli- ... lo- ... neliness ...
I just can't get away from loneli- ...loneliness ...
Yeah, ... yeah ...

Loneliness ...
Can't get away from loneliness ...

Save the Land

Look out for the land rush, it’s coming day by day.
Said, get ready for the land rush, it’s headed right your way.
Look what you’re paying, to live on your land,
And most folks don’t even have some, but I don’t understand.

Spread the news across the land, and just do the best you can,
All we’ve got is just the land; take a stand, save the land.

Sometimes I sit here thinking, but all the answers just don’t appear.
I’m calling to my brothers and sisters, let’s get together and kill this fear.
There ain’t really gonna’ be much to it. we can control the thing if we try.
With just a little more understanding, the whole world will get by.

Two beautiful songs from Grand Funk, appeals for respect and mindful treat of land and Earth as a whole
