John Michael Greer on Druidism and The Ecotechnic Future

Archdruid John Michael Greer

John Michael Greer’s book THE ECOTECHNIC FUTURE is a closely reasoned, completely secular treatment of what he calls the Long Descent as our industrial civilization limps to a close. But his faith as a Druid — he’s an Archdruid and blogs at The Archdruid Report — is what spurred him to examine The Long Decline and how human society can optimally deal with it to create a future technology based on ecological principles and respect for the Earth.

Host Francesca Rheannon interviewed him for Writers Voice. You can hear the rest of the interview here.
