THE SEQUEL: What Will Follow Our Troubled Civilization?
THE SEQUEL shines a light on the work and legacy of David Fleming, a historian, economist, and ecologist with a deep understanding of how our prevailing economic systems have guided and defined our present society. It is a compelling vision of how we can recover what we have lost as the market economy has worked its way into every aspect of our lives.
We encounter extraordinary people and projects from four continents that are cultivating a resilience not reliant on the impossible promise of eternal economic growth: renegade economist Kate Raworth, conservative philosopher Roger Scruton, Gaian ecologist Stephan Harding, localization revolutionary Helena Norberg-Hodge, inspirational practivist and Transition Network co-founder Rob Hopkins, eco-pioneer and Forum for the Future co-founder Jonathon Porritt and philanthropist/composer Peter Buffett, among many others.
As we discover, all were inspired by a work of rare depth that is rekindling optimism in the creativity and intelligence of humans to nurse our communities and ecology back to health: Fleming’s posthumously published lifework, Lean Logic: A Dictionary for the Future and How to Survive It.
The Sequel recognizes the fundamentally unsustainable framework of today’s society and dares to ask the big question: What will follow?
