Speth, James Gustave. The Bridge at the End of the World: capitalism, the environment, and crossing from crisis to sustainability. Yale University Press. New York. 2008.

Only some parts of contemporary society recognize and embrace the concepts described in this book. Wise reflections on how we can modify our society and corporations to stop destroying ourselves and start regenerating.

Arundhati Roy, via Speth's book:

Another world is not only possible. She is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.

Let's pay attention to the warning signs Speth highlights:

  • Being, not having
  • Giving, not getting
  • Needs, not wants
  • Better, not richer
  • Community, not individual
  • Other, not self
  • Connected, not separate
  • Ecology, not economy
  • Part of nature, not apart from nature
  • Dependent, not transcendent
  • Tomorrow, not today
