The members of this group, as they themselves claim, are not ‚systemic’; they closely observe current world events from Orzechówka, they are aware of the artificial political division into the left and the right, and they consider large corporations to be the greatest evil. They want to be attached to their land, but they know that it is becoming increasingly difficult, even in Poland there are few places left where they could settle. The intuition of the members of the mentioned community was developed from their interaction with the environment of the Świętokrzyskie Mountains. While spending time with the group members, we noticed many facts analogous to those described in the Bruno Latour’s book „Down to the Earth”. Co-authors: Jan Kanty Zienko, Antoni Skrzyniarz
