Principles of Earth Democracy - Part 9 - By Vandana Shiva - Earth Democracy

9. Living cultures are life nourishing .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        . Living cultures are based on the dignity of and respect for all life, human and nonhuman, people of all genders and cultures, present and future generations. Living cultures are, therefore, ecological cultures which do not promote life-destroying lifestyles or consumption and production patterns, or the overuse and exploitation of resources. Living cultures are diverse and based on reverence for life. Living cultures recognize the multiplicity of identities based in an identity of place and local community-c-and a planetary consciousness that connects the individual to the earth and all life.
