In this interesting video, George Monbiot argues we need a new story that appeals to a wide political spectrum, that is simple, intelligible and grounded in reality. He explains we have been lulled into a dominant political narrative that pushes us to competition, atomizes our modern society that is governed by psychopaths. In reality, human beings have a massive capacity for altruism; we are also cooperators, with an incredible capacity for togetherness and belonging.
My newest book, Edging Forward, brings forward the new stories we need to reframe our community development to reconcile and reconnect to solve our modern grand challenges of climate pollution and biodiversity loss. Maybe it is all about the return of dragons. . .
