In the human world of faster, bigger, and more profitable, it is difficult to conceive of one based on slower, smaller, and free. But all we need to do is observe nature to see this is the way to go.
Over millions of revolutions on its axis, the earth builds mountains, and it wears them away. The geological time frame is so vast that a human life, in comparison, is like the breath of the buffalo on a winter day.
There is no inherent hierarchy of life with 'man' at the top. Any life is as important as any other life, and has an equal right to exist. That goes as much for blue whales as it does for microscopic organisms. All is important and vital to a functioning biosphere. It is often the smallest of things that have the greatest roles to play.
Before humans commenced large-scale exploitation of the land and everything on it and under it, all was free for everyone. It still could be. There is more than enough. Nature is endlessly abundant.
Nature can't be wrong. Slower, smaller, and free is the way to go.
