The New Realism

For some time, our world has been dominated by ideologies of nation, race, religion, class, and gender that represent clashes and competition as natural parts of life and cooperation and accord as artificial deviations from human nature. However, their grip on collective conscious is giving way to new ways of thinking and being in the world. Agency and Change is a blog by Michael Karlberg, author of the book Beyond the Culture of Contest. In his most recent post, Karlberg raises the possibility that humanity's increasing social and economic interdependence will drive a re-evaluation of what constitutes a "realistic" approach to addressing social issues.

  1. Michael Karlberg lives in my area. He does a great job facilitating youth projects and schools. I've never heard anyone better describe the force of the media on society.
