Participatory Spirituality for the 21st Century
I'm sure you've seen the articles, the videos, and FB pages -
What do you think about it all?
You'd put money on it? Wow. I hope you're right.
Thomas - thank you again so much for providing us with all this info - it's invaluable information.
Q re. "The banks really really were bailed out. Really."

Do folks here use a credit union rather than a bank? I've long been contemplating a switch (my mother was actually urging me to do this several years ago), and I am thinking the time is now well overdue.
Yes, after the '08 crises I moved my $ into a local credit union. It's FDIC insured up to 100k per account like any bank, so it seems the money is protected. But then again, I don't understand what Tom is talking about so who knows? And I guess if the economy completely collapses then so much for any insurance.
This makes me very angry.
You can say that again. I don't know what country I'm living in any more.
I've been looking forward to getting this book. I really liked his previous book, The Empathic Civilization. We have a thread dedicated to Rifkin here, if you'd like to talk about the new book there.
Looks like Otto Scharmer has a new book forthcoming which is relevant to some of the themes in this thread.
Cool piece of news on Germany's progressive energy initiatives.
