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.
