Thanks to Brent Dean Robbins and the Society for Humanistic Psychology, Division 32 on Facebook for the link to this interesting article in Yes Magazine, on the subject of how we have lost our way as cultures, and what might help us to address this – essentially it’s about stepping away from consumption and the values of consumerism, towards ecologically and financially sustainable models centered around values of interconnection, equality, diversity, social justice and the ethics of stewardship and service. It’s U.S. focused – and what it says is for the most part equally relevant here. It’s also long – and it repays the reading…..
These ideas about the ‘good life’ are of course similar to those Rogers wrote about decades ago….a person-centered conception of our needs, and enhancing ways for us to structure our societies and live alongside each other/in harmony with the natural world.
