Ryan, I'm with you. A community comprised of differing uses seems much more harmonious. To me, I draw an analogy from my back-yard vegetable garden: if I plant only potatoes, the risk of diseases and attraction by pests is much higher. But if companion planting, as, for example, 'Roses Love Garlic' says, is the way to go, then the benefits of one plant and the insects it attracts or denies can balance the drawbacks of another plant. My belief is that the further we draw ourselves away from the land and root our discussions in the ether of money and facts without a base, the more difficult it becomes to imagine a human community.
