David Korten – Change the Story, Change the Future

Now, hold on there – I know these days when many of us see an older white man behind a podium – a numbed, dulling fatigue immediately begins to set in, like right behind the eyes, but trust me: this is one of the good ones.

“Deep democracy, real democracy is the only way that we can organize as a society, to achieve balance with Earth – and to do it in a way that meets the needs of all.”– David Korten

America’s Latest Utopian Experiment

summit powder mountain utopia
(Marshall Birnbaum)

“Its founders say they are creating a year-round community for innovators, thought leaders, artists, scientists, and others to solve the world’s most pressing challenges, from environmental catastrophe to access to basic medical care.

“The leadership is baking equal opportunity into the town’s design.”

. . . via “America’s Latest Utopian Experiment” by Laura Raskin @ The Atlantic

The article quoting Michel Foucault: ” . . . utopias are fundamentally unreal spaces.”

To which I say: screw you, Foucalt! (and RIP)

What if the greatest untruth ever perpetuated upon mankind was the lie that a better world was not possible?
