"Terry Patten asserts that we are living at the center of a multidimensional and radical revolution. Recasting current problems as emergent opportunities, he points out humans' natural tendency to evolve during periods of acute crisis and offers creative responses, practices, and conscious conversations for tackling the profound inner and outer work we must do to build an integral future. In this book for seekers and change agents, Terry Patten makes the case that the mounting challenges of our current global crises are being met with an emergent, interconnected revolution that integrates both inner personal growth work with outer awareness, activism, and service. Rather than diagnosing everything that is wrong with our current society, Patten identifies how spiritual and political awakenings are intertwined. He also looks at the range of responses to the crisis--from techno-optimism to ecological activism to survivalism--appreciating the partial truths in them all. Patten explores creative responses, practices, and conscious conversations that, together, will be taking us into an integral and inspiring future. This is a practical book for activists seeking to reframe, reanimate, and reintegrate their work for change"--

Diese Ausgabe von "Sonnenstaat" wurde mit einem funktionalen Layout erstellt und sorgfältig formatiert. Dieses eBook ist mit interaktiven Inhalt und Begleitinformationen versehen, einfach zu navigieren und gut gegliedert. Sonnenstaat ist ein Werk, das den wirtschaftlichen und politischen Aufbau eines idealen Staates darstellt. Die Darstellung erfolgt in Form eines poetischen Dialoges zwischen einem genuesischen Schiffskommandanten und dem Großmeister der Hospitaliter. Der Genuese ist beim Großmeister zu Gast und erzählt von seiner letzten Reise und dem Aufenthalt im Sonnenstaat. Sein Gastgeber treibt das Gespräch mit Fragen zu Alltag, Politik und Lebensweise der "Solarier" voran. Campanello führt im Sonnenstaat alle sozialen Übel auf das Privateigentum zurück. Dieses will er mit seiner kollektivistischen Gesellschaftsordnung, die sämtliche Lebensbereiche umfasst, beseitigen. Genau ermittelte Bedarfspläne bestimmen demnach die Produktion. Die Institution der Familie, die das materielle Denken fördert und deshalb das Privateigentum stützt, soll aufgelöst werden. An ihrer Stelle soll ein Frauen- und Kinderkommunismus verwirklicht werden, der eugenischen Zielen dient. Im "Sonnenstaat" bedeutet die Gattung alles, das Individuum nichts. Tommaso Campanella (1568-1639) war ein italienischer Philosoph, Dominikaner, neulateinischer Dichter und Politiker.

by Sir Thomas More; Francis Bacon; Henry Neville

While Thomas More first coined the word utopia in his 1516 book of the same name, the concept of a near perfect society dates at least back to the period of classical antiquity. Plato's "The Republic" is often cited as one of earliest attempts at addressing just such a society. However in the 16th century Thomas More's work established itself as the most famous example of this genre of literature. More's "Utopia" is described as an idealized island community upon which perfect social harmony has been achieved, all property is community owned, violence is nonexistent and everyone has the opportunity to work and live in an environment of religious tolerance. Along with this work "Three Early Modern Utopias" also includes Francis Bacon's "New Atlantis" and Henry Neville's "The Isle of Pines." Bacon's work, which appears over a century after Utopia, also concerns a utopian island which is happened upon by the crew of a European ship. On Bacon's mythical island of Bensalem, "generosity and enlightenment, dignity and splendor, piety and public spirit" are the commonly held qualities of its inhabitants. Neville's work follows a similar construct as Bacon's when five people are shipwrecked on the idyllic "Isle of Pines." These three early works help to define an entire genre of literature and greatly influenced the work of the many authors who followed in their footsteps.

Ludger Eversmann hat sich mit den langfristigen Wissenschaftszielen der Wirtschaftsinformatik beschäftigt, die zur Bearbeitung einer der zentralen ökonomischen Fragen der Gegenwart führte: Wie können Gesellschaften stabilisierend und wohlfahrtsteigernd mit extrem hoher Produktivität umgehen? Auf diesem Hintergrund hat er den Mut gefunden, eine Utopie zu entwickeln. Dafür holt er weit aus und erzählt anschaulich und unangestrengt die Geschichte, die zu einer neuen industriellen Revolution führt und jetzt schon begonnen hat. In den 3D-Druckern und der digitalen Fabrikation ist der Vorschein nicht nur einer neuen Produktionsweise, sondern auch einer neuen Gesellschaft zu sehen, die den Kapitalismus hinter sich lassen könnte. Geleitet wird die Utopie vom Ziel einer etwa auf Nano-Technik basierenden universellen Fabrikationsmaschine Wie wäre es, wenn die Fabriken so klein werden, dass sie bei jedem zu Hause in den Keller passen, auf den Küchentisch oder auf den Schreibtisch? Oder in einem kleinen Shop stehen, um die Ecke? Das würde etwas ändern, dann könnte jeder seine eigene kleine Fabrik besitzen, und diese Fabrik im eigenen Keller macht all diese Dinge, die ein Mensch im Leben braucht. Jedenfalls möglichst viele davon. In Zukunft wird der Reichtum nicht mehr zentral, in riesengroßen Fabriken und weltbeherrschenden Konzernen hergestellt, sondern dezentral, ganz nah beim Konsumenten, in der Regie des Konsumenten und auch mit dem eigenen Geld des Konsumenten. Denn der Konsument wird auch Produzent und die Grenzen und die Trennung von Kapital und Arbeit werden sich auflösen. Reichtum besteht in Zukunft aus gerade so viel Dingen und Gütern, die ein Mensch oder ein Haushalt gerne besitzen, benutzen und konsumieren möchte, und nicht etwa aus endlosen, gigantischen Geldmengen, die am Ende keinen anderen Zweck mehr verfolgen und realisieren können, als einfach immer nur noch weiter zu wachsen.

A more cooperative world is possible. If we were to put the entire history of humankind into a 24-hour-day, it would only be in the past couple minutes that civilization has looked like this. Pollution. Exploitation. Isolation. Disparity. Symptoms of a society out of control, and certainly not one that was designed to last. But what if we could live differently? It turns out, more than 100,000 people already are, in ecovillages, cohousing, communes, and communities of all kinds around the world. They're working together to create fair, sustainable, and satisfying models of society.How can you find intentional communities? The answer is the Communities Directory -- an online and printed catalog of intentional communities in the US, and all over the planet. For 25 years the Fellowship for Intentional Community (FIC) has been building, innovating, and keeping this catalog fresh. A book to find the community that suits you!In addition to profiling more than 1,000 communities, the book includes full-page maps showing where communities are located, charts that compare communities by more than 30 different qualities, and an easy index to find communities interested in specific pursuits. Also known as the Guide to Intentional Communities & Cooperative Living -- this epic book includes tons of bonus content, including articles on how to start or join a community, the basics of group dynamics and decision-making, and countless resources and links to help your community thrive!

For Erik Reece, life, at last, was good: he was newly married, gainfully employed, living in a creekside cabin in his beloved Kentucky woods. It sounded, as he describes it, "like a country song with a happy ending." And yet he was still haunted by a sense that the world--or, more specifically, his country--could be better. He couldn't ignore his conviction that, in fact, the good ol' USA was in the midst of great social, environmental, and political crises--that for the first time in our history, we were being swept into a future that had no future. Where did we--here, in the land of Jeffersonian optimism and better tomorrows--go wrong? Rather than despair, Reece turned to those who had dared to imagine radically different futures for America. What followed was a giant road trip and research adventure through the sites of America's utopian communities, both historical and contemporary, known and unknown, successful and catastrophic. What he uncovered was not just a series of lost histories and broken visionaries but also a continuing and vital but hidden idealistic tradition in American intellectual history. Utopia Drive is an important and definitive reconstruction of that tradition. It is also, perhaps, a new framework to help us find a genuinely sustainable way forward." ... an engaging exploration -- and example -- of the fruitful tunnel-visions of dreamers turned doers." - Publishers Weekly
