This is the conclusion of Gordon Katic’s documentary The End of Civilization Ecovillage, in which he tells the story of his visit to Ecovillage on Salt Spring Island. It was rebroadcast on the ECOreport as EcoReality on Salt Spring Island 2.
“Gordon Katic is an environmentalist, but he doesn’t get out of the city very much. He’s plugged into politics, but removed from nature. So he boarded a ferry and went to a farming co-op on an island off the coast of BC. He found old hippies, a new-agey kid, and a man very afraid of peak oil. They all say that civilization is doomed, so they decided to escape. But what did they escape to?” – from the opening of EcoReality on Salt Spring Island 1.
