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.

    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.
