We Don't Know: Reflections on the New Story Summit | Charles Eisenstein

We Don't Know: Reflections on the New Story Summit | Charles Eisenstein | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
By the standards of a conference, the New Story Summit (NSS) at Findhorn was a tremendous success. It featured a culturally diverse line-up of speakers who illuminated, both through the content of their speeches and also through their authenticity and presence, the deep crisis of our civilization and the possibility of its healing. Grief, despair, and anguish were allowed space alongside hope and inspiration; systems change and personal change were intimately acquainted.

John Pilger on ISIS: Only When We See the War Criminals In Our Midst Will the Blood Begin to Dry

John Pilger on ISIS: Only When We See the War Criminals In Our Midst Will the Blood Begin to Dry | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Like Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, ISIS are the mutations of a western state terror dispensed by a venal imperial elite undeterred by the consequences of actions taken at great remove in distance and culture. Their culpability is unmentionable in "our" societies.
