Quote:
We appear to be reaching the physical if not also the moral limits of globalization.

And so, we must ask ourselves, if the dreams of the late capitalist paradigm are counter-factual to aspirations for a socio-ecologically sustainable society, what kind of dreams should we aim to realize?

If we begin with the goal of eliminating systems of enforced dependency in an effort to create or restore diverse and resilient societies, I believe we are on the right track.

We must begin this work at home, in our communities, in our nations, and in the larger world system.

There has been some really good stuff come out of Feasta. It rarely translates into action by the Irish government.

'Enforced dependency' - spot on. Good on you 3R.

US centric I know, but worth a read nonetheless. Very Happy

Why do our friends across the sea insist on using a 'z' when they should use an 's'? Strange.

Ah sorry, I haven't read it all yet - I wrongly assumed it to be Feasta work.
