Great minds think alike. No sooner do I write a post on why we need to be both "for" solutions and "against" problems, than I come across Richard Heinberg piece outlining what it is that we are "for". He too suggests that opposition is at least as important as advocacy, but he also makes the case that we need to frame the argument around the positive future we wish to create. As excellent videos like the Story of Broke and the Plenitude Economy have shown, we can both define the problems and identify a better future in one and the same narrative. From energy literacy and conservation through relocalization and beauty to family planning and biodiversity—Heinberg lays out some of the key pillars of what that future must include.
What Green Activists Are "For"
Oppositional politics is important right now. But we can also take the time to define what we are aiming for.
