This short documentary gives insight into important issues facing indigenous people and human culture in general, in the world today. It also looks at empowering actions people are taking to restore Man’s cultural heritage, our connection with the Earth, and our place in the world.
I wish to highly recommend familiarising yourself with Earth Jurisprudence, or Earth Law, as outlined on the Gaia Foundation web site.
Earth Jurisprudence or Earth law recognises Earth as the primary source of law which sets human law in a context which is wider than humanity. This is to say that human law should be derived from the laws which govern life – it is secondary to Earth law. Earth Law acknowledges that the good of the whole takes precedence over the good of the individual elements. Thus the way we govern ourselves needs to embody an ethical code of practice which requires us to live according to Nature’s laws, for the well-being of the whole Earth Community and future generations of all species.
