Re: Profit from permaculture SueinWA, if that's what you want to do great, go for it! Like I said, that's not for me though and I think it's possible to birth another economy inside the old (in fact it's already being done, see freeconomy, freecycle, really really free market, etc.). Yes, unfortunately as of now I still have to participate in the old economy somewhat since it's currently extremely pervasive and global (i.e. totalitarian), that's why I'm still keeping my day job for now. But I still believe it's possible to move towards something new. It's like the idea of sustainability or self-reliance. It's never completely possible to be 100% sustainable or self-reliant, but I think it's possible to take steps and move in that direction. Besides, I've been fortunate enough to be given a lot in this life, so I feel the need to return the favor. Like I said, I think a diversity of tactics to spread permaculture is good though.
