Jeg er abonnent på Resurgence, og der er det mye bra. Her er noen sitater fra no 255:
”… for every kilo we eat, ten kilos of waste is generated along the food chain. For consumer goods the trail of waste can be much greater. A car that weighs a tonne takes seventy tonnes of material to produce. Waste is the leviathan of the modern industrial system.”
Robin Murray, Resurgence No 255, p 35
”… if trading activity becomes dominant, people spende more time working than experiencing wellbeing in family and community. Then the quality of their lives decreases and this is experienced as a loss of meaning and quality of lived experience, which people are encouraged to compensate for with more quantity of goods and money. This is the retail therapy that is notorious in our culture: a desperate attempt of consumer items. Because community has been destroyed, people often fail to notice this because of an absence of the relationships required to evaluate quality of life.
This politive feedback loop leads to the disintegration of society as people search desperately for ways of finding meaning, ususall through the accumulation of money. This inevitably fails…”
Brian Goodwin, Resurgence No 255, p 39
