In the midst of chaos and confusion, perils and problems, it is possible to see through the mists to another version of reality. Hazel Henderson provides some penetrating insights to help light our way through the darkness. Here she speaks of the death of the old socio/political model and the rise of new ways. Eco-philosophy, eco-feminism, return of the goddess, patriarchy's decline, thinking globally/acting locally and more provide the focus in this far-ranging yet succinct dialogue.


 Hazel Henderson (1933-2022) was a self-taught environmentalist and futurist who became an apostle of the green economy and of socially responsible investing, and who popularized the slogan “think globally, act locally, She sought to redefine gross national product as a measure of prosperity not merely to encompass material success on the bases of the cash value of goods and services produced annually, but also to include health, social, educational and other benchmarks that make life worthwhile. She was instrumental in pressing for qualitative measurements suitable for people focused on a democratic economy, in contrast to the dominant monetized yardsticks of the corporate economy and through networking she spread those measures throughout the international civic community.
