India: Sikkim is the first organic state in the world

There is a place where using chemical fertilizers is a crime, where the farmland is 100% organic, and where a major reforestation campaign is underway. Welcome to Sikkim, the first organic state in India and the world.

    If we have an organic nation very soon mos of our water sources will be drinkable so water in plastic bottles to hold it will become surplus to requirement. Some of our worst polluted water is in towns and cities where it is contaminated with chlorine and fluorine.

    It's all about cooperation. It's a hard work but feasibly possible. Kudos.

    A wonderful example what can be done for a win win no matter what your ideology. It takes a political will, which unfortunately is almost impossible as long as we are under the illusion that we are living under a democratic system. As long as just a few dictate and control our governments decisions. Our Constitution is a living document to be changed when appropriate. Democracy is not Freedom for whatever we wish to do. A social awareness of survival is part of it. Stop calling this Socialism.
