Healing the Heart of Democracy
Mutual Aid Network
An Economy of Assets, not deficiencies.
The growth and capitalism doesn't necessarily encourage wellbeing, just increase in wealth in the simplest sense
MAN style encourages existing assets and also the increase of skills, wellbeing, and self-worth as they are already.
Reduces barriers to wellbeing by running on peoples gifts and assets instead of not having enough money to have wellbeing
Patience Vs. Waiting
Waiting may mean that change will never come, but it also might mean that we don't persist in our engagement.
Patience can mean that we are persistent in our engagement but we do so with the understanding that change takes time and slow persistent action creates real change.
The Price of Inequality
American as the land of opportunity is a myth
increase in money doesn't mean increase in wellbeing. Why is it that money can't achieve the same wellbeing as the MAN style economy
Has more barriers than MAN
What's yours is mine, the rise of collaborative consumption
reduces quantity of new products, and raw materials consumed
creates new consumer mindset
similar to Robin Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass, (Gift Economy).
Do things will a collective good mindset instead of purely for self-interest and self-advancement.
self-advancement is unattainable since we all in it together
Reputation capital, what about reciprocity capital???
Creates persistent, patient, forward thinking, sensitive, empathic, bigger picture thinking leaders
