Funny how everyone is in a rush say "permaculture isn't socialism" And I'd agree up to a point that it's incompatible with many ways socialism has historically manifested. But permaculture is also obviously incompatible with capitalism. Capitalism already violates the first two permaculture ethics.

Now, do people need to make a living in order to survive? Absolutely. But permaculture isn't just about adapting to the way things currently stand, whether ecologically or socially/economically, it's about making things better.
