Book cover of A Modern Herbal

“Patriarchy isn’t working for us.” @AlysFowler on @AndrewTimothyOB’s Garden’s Weeds & Words podcast. The inclination to control plants, destroy pests, to have dominion over every living thing, this runs deep in the monotheistic, Judeo-Christian and patriarchal tradition. It is the fallacy of human supremacy. This is what makes the The God Delusion such an interesting read, and Darwin’s Dangerous Idea. Godless but not good-less, life as the measure of good. Just an idea.

Oh, the podcast is a great listen and Alys Fowler’s book A Modern Herbal sounds wonderful 🙂
