An insight into the prosocial process...

Today I facilitated a call between volunteers in the Earth Regenerators community who are designing websites and cultivating strategies for our continued evolution. All of our work is done in the spirit of the gift economy. No one is being paid for what they contribute. All of us are friends who seek to serve the recuperation of health for Earth's living systems.

One of the most important things I've discovered is that humans can thrive in small, prosocial groups. We are nourished and nurtured to develop our capacities when open to and supported by others who share a deep sense of identity and purpose. This week we will complete a two-month learning journey about how to regenerate the Earth. Our process has been to cultivate prosocial groups who together live into the tensions of planetary collapse and earth regeneration.

I've been asked to elaborate more by a few of you... so this thread will expand on what I've seen.

Firstly, let me say that I did watch the movie and that my FB feed has been filled with reviews, critiques, and commentaries by people I would generally call allies in all of this. What I've seen is a handful of people who get what the film was about. These people already were "collapse aware" and knew that green energy is a superficial response to a deep relational crisis.

I'll let William Catton's 1980 book Overshoot stand in for their position.

A brief commentary on the ineffectiveness of protests in today's world...

Let me begin by acknowledging protests played an important role in earlier times; especially during the Age of Broadcast Media in the 20th Century when protest images had big impacts on public awareness. They were part of larger social movements engaging in structural policy interventions through alternative social models, new modes of political organization, adoption of new policy frameworks, and so forth.

This is NOT what protests achieve today.
