I have just bought David Korten's new book, "Change the Story, Change the Future".
I didn't realize this was in fact a Report to the Club of Rome at the time I bought it (last night after reading David's post here on Common Dreams).
The last report I read from the Club of Rome was "The Limits to Growth" by the MIT Systems Group in 1972, after I had dropped out of my third year at McGill University in 1970. But I knew enough science by then, and enough about the world, to realize that the picture painted by that MIT Group was accurate enough. I have never forgotten about that report in the forty-four years since, and as David Korten reports in this new Club of Rome Report, "The Limits to Growth" has proven largely accurate and on the money, to indulge in a bit of morbid humor.
I can say with certainty that I agree with both the forecast of the "Limits to Growth" and with David Korten's new Report to The club of Rome.
It is reminiscent of Ervin Laszlo's Club of Budapest book "Worldshift 2012", but this one by David is by an American, and is couched in more understandable language - closer to the culture I grew up in.
But the message is the same - change or die.
I urge all to read this new book.
The inertia in the system all but guarantees ongoing collapse, but without hope we are truly lost.
