A Certain Uncertainty
The more dependent we become on money,
the more dependent we become on the money masters.
~ David Korten
The money masters of our globalized, exploitive, industrial economy have highjacked our political system, deteriorated the health of our families and communities, destabilized our climate and exhausted our natural resources. Transition is a localized response to this global uncertainty. It is about mass mobilization of creation, not opposition. Like warriors, we focus on efficiency of motion, and ask for no permission. By creating and participating in what we do want, we are building area resiliency while simultaneously moving towards ultimate non-participation in a system we no longer condone. We are the hands and feet of global finance. What if we stopped being so cooperative? What if we gave up the myth of our own powerlessness?
By creating homes of production, rather than consumption, nestled within neighborly economic networks, we not only have a chance of navigating uncertain times, but also helping to end them.
We repattern the world when we repattern our communities,
