Ruined by Design / sample chapter

Re: Zero Wasters?

Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Refuse even buying or using is primary. Recycle is last because its easiest, but also least important.

Perhaps having to earn that status by being able qualify as a citizen (passing the civics test, no felonies, no arrest record, all taxes paid, ...) and then repeating/renewing the qualification every 10 years, like at age 20, 30, 40, .... So even people arrested and not charged with anything would ...

Re: Growing Food for $0

Get to know some local gardeners - all gardening depends on local conditions. The best way to garden on one area is going to fail in another. Watering, raised beds or not, varieties to grow, when to plant, what to plant - all vary immensely. Often gardeners will share surplus plants, seeds, supplies...

Re: What aspects of today's society will we be ashamed of in sixty years?

Great trees! It must be so satisfying to see them grow.
