Ancient Futures - Learning From Ladakh
Thanks to Adam for recommending this excellent documentary "Ancient Futures - Learning From Ladakh." This film explores the interconnections of how state-forced development inevitably leads to unsustainability by destroying local forms of economy, ecology, free choice, happiness and self-sufficiency despite expanded material plenty. Using Ladakh as a perfect case study, we can see the problems and solutions to our current societal woes, glimpsing our coming "Ancient Futures" in which we get back to gardening, small community living, and self-sustainability in accord with nature.
