This is a wide reaching historic and evolutionary account and view of human endevours with a view to show that we are heading for the cliff, nature does not care, but that we should change course completely for our own sake. Should be read by anyone who has some sanity left
Eaarth, The Great Turning,
Some of it is really scary and hard hitting stuff, which is hard to stomach
Absolutely worth every minute
This is just another book about how existing systems and institutions will be able to overcome the mess we are in, not realising that the systems and insitution of empire and capitalism are at the heart of the problems and unless we completely change that around we are doomed one way or another.
He is living in his own elite world in the clouds at Aspen ski resort, removed from reality of the real issues and greening the current economy does not achieve much, and will be way to little far too late and just prolongs the suffering for the rest of us (the 99%).
Not worth reading unless you think everything is gonna bee OK with business as usual.
One of the best in the genre of analysiing and bringing to the fore the historic, social, psychological and many other root causes for the mess we are in and provides very much spot on recommendations on how to fix the mess we are in.
This book is highly recommended to anyone trying to understand and see the light at the end of the tunnel of where we should head. But also should be compulsory reading for all economcis and law students (often part of the elite), an all in political and economic power (they will likely hate it).
