Description:In this Schumacher Briefing, Roy Madron and John Jopling argue that the main purpose of our Western democracies is to satisfy the needs of a global debt-money system through the pursuit of economic growth. This 'Global Monetocracy' is a hugely powerful system that is imposing social injustice, economic incompetence and ecological disaster on the human family. Madron and Jopling make the case for a very different system of globalisation. A global network of Gaian Democracies could achieve very different aims. The concepts, insights and tools of Gaian Democracy have already been used to successfully reconfigure organisations and communities in very tough situations. And that they provide the means by which states, communities and people from all walks of life could generate the collective power, both to overcome the stranglehold of the Global Monetocracy and to co-create the just and sustainable societies that the human family desperately needs.
