Society is made by developing systems to benefit what benefits people. It is repaired by tweaking or repairing those systems to achieve beneficial effect.
In 2014 we finally seem to be coming back to the understanding that all of life on the planet is inexcusably linked, and we sink or swim as an ecosystem. We do not own the earth or its resources, but we do own our human systems and their effects is our responsibility. We simply need to restructure the human systems that do not benefit ‘life on earth’. Difficult as it may sound, that is what we must band together and do.
