    Paul Hawken, without a trace of self-importance, impales a very dark room on Blessed Unrest book beam of a very bright light here. The movement is an amalgam of cell-like entities, each with a unique function, each seeking to link its efforts to a larger purpose. Read this book and shout "Hallelujah! The history of the west is a pattern of destroying anyone who we cannot place an immediate value on in the financial sense. In this case, the eyes of the people who inhabit Earth's dwindling primary forests, and the hope that we can see clearly the action that is ultimately the most compassionate, even to the people who inhabit the AFPA.

    He begins the Blessed Unrest book with a history of the environmental movement starting with the environment and social movements focusing on Thoreau and Emerson then moving to Rachel Carson and others. Globalization creates a uniformity of services to everyone in the world and eliminates sovereignty of economic choices in business. Do-gooding will always have a perception problem. Read and regain a sense of optimism for our grandchildren's grandchildren; and be motivated to ensure that they inherit a restored earth and an equitable society. A real movement, that is. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time.

    There are simply no answers to some of the great pressing questions. I think about it all the time. Fear Blessed Unrest book motivate immediate action in the short-run, but hope can be sustained. There are a few billionaires, working hard to give their wealth away, and there are even some Christian evangelicals, who have decided the earth is not theirs to trash, but the movement is mostly about shared beliefs, even if those beliefs are unproclaimed. It is not about what I think the movement should do nor is it about what I think we should do about corporate charters.
