Vision for sustainability

Dear SANETers,

I have followed the discussion lately with interest; it seems that
sustainability deals with many more issues than just the physical fact of
food.  People have talked about gender, equality, justice, fulfillment,
Spirit...many things.

I would be interested in hearing what people's VISIONS are for a
"sustainable" world.  What would the world look like, what would it be like
if we could truly achieve that goal?  Why would it be important that it be
just that way?

Please, if you choose to answer this question, stay away from telling us
HOW you would get there; talking about methods will likely precipitate
fruitless circular discussions.  I also ask that people refrain from
criticizing others' ideas...if you have questions about what someone
proposes, please make them true questions which show that you honor the
thoughts, instead of veiled objections.

Thank you all so much, I have learned a great deal from you all, and look
forward to more.
