2196. Vision and retreat

People are not liking what they see. How do we direct our efforts without a vision? A coherent vision must go beyond  the  “re” words of re-construction, re-novation, re-storation, all of which are conserving views,  like “sustainability”, and not sufficient to get us through and onward. The earth obviously cannot take on an affluent life of consumption for all. More fundamental changes are necessary. But so far we are fighting ourselves.  Just as it is clear we need fundamental change to avoid interdependent catastrophes, many are working to reinforce their current activity in order to remain viable a little bit longer. But this  gets in the way of change. Moreover many are making plans for what they see as a post crisis opportunity to rebuild what was lost, but this too gets in the way and delays, potentially lethal, the possibility of encouraging changes.
