A destructive way of life is now so deeply embedded within our daily lives, our economies, our livelihoods, our ways of doing business, that addressing the various crises, including the ethical and moral crises with which this way of life confronts us, means change at scales few of us want to consider, or are willing to accept – and I include a lot of the environmental and social justice communities in that critique. I’m part of them, so I am critiquing from within, not from without. We are all part of this awful dilemma that confronts us now.
