Is Prince Charles' 'Heart In The Right Place'?

The Duchy has no hippy heart and he runs it.
Don't you think the hippy stuff is something of a cover?
All the top super rich impoverisher sociopaths do this PR.
Charles has a massive PR operation costing around £500k anually, both proactive visiting Dr Who sets etc etc and a small army of lawyers to detect negative stories before they emerge and issue legal threats to stop publication.
Here's just one old article illustrating this
Hard up, Charles? Who do you think you're kidding?
I suppose the point of this is to get a good review in The Land of Charles' Harmony book, his 'vision for Britain'.
Poundbury in a small way sums it up. So why not a genuine C21 ecovillage such as the Ecoville 2000 project Roger Kelly from CAT and Richard St George from Schumacher Society designed? Giving the residents genuine freedom and autonomy. A real vision for the future.
This could be Britain's gift to the world if Charles were a real libertarian in any way - which I believe he isn't. His is a fake eco vision which totally sells out to the same money system which is destroying society and the planet.
