Gene Logsdon,
People in Monet’s day saw much more than just the beauty of a haystack when they looked at one. They saw survival. As long as haystacks dotted the horizon every fall, society knew that it would survive until the next growing season. I wonder if even today, people look at those hay bales dotting a field and instinctively realize the same thing.

Reviving anarchy for the sake of sustainability (original)
Antonio Roman-Alcalá, Civil Eats
One thing that fascinates me about political theorist Murray Bookchin’s writing is how prescient it is. His essay, “Ecology and Revolutionary Thought,” was written in 1965, six years before Earth Day, and almost a half-century before now. Yet its content is as relevant as ever, if not more so, given society's increasing interest in all things “green.” Bookchin even references future ramifications of climate change, long before many had even considered it.
