About this deal

In Breaking Together, he lays out the evidence that collapse is now under way, and the clarity he gained by accepting that. Ten years later, I know that there was a lot more to it, and that prostitution is the wrong word – paedophilia, sex trafficking and even blackmail are more accurate. Reviewing Organizational Vulnerabilities: While this action isn’t inherently ecolibertarian, it can be aligned with these principles when organizations work towards reducing dependencies on destructive systems and embracing local, sustainable solutions. And remember, it’s okay to find humor amidst the seriousness, it often brings the most enlightening insights. Now that’s a lot of wonderful humans and beautiful cats, but shows just how much damage and distortion has occurred.

If we take the time to really look at what’s going wrong in the world in general, it can be worse than disheartening.So that you can get a sense of the quality of the output, I paste in his correspondence with JemBot below. He says we need ‘freedom from banking’ and the ecocidal stranglehold that money and monetary systems have on our society, which not only reinforce the delusion of our separation from nature, but lead to “routinised socio-environmental oppression”, and “routinised cultural and political oppression”. My speech at the launch of the book is now online (see the video below, along with a rough transcript).

JemBot: “In the context of ‘Breaking Together,’ Jem Bendell’s ecolibertarian approach is about building self-reliance, decreasing dependency on harmful systems, and fostering communities that are more in tune with nature and each other. Queer black feminists (particularly) have been talking about civilisational collapse due to biosphere destruction, climate change and an expansionist money system? It is important this matter is a priority of the new mayor of Glastonbury and that proceeds from today will contribute to local mental health support for the homeless.Perhaps a collapse of our modern day society will be a good thing as it presents us with a real opportunity to develop a fairer , freer society in which we take back our inalienable rights and power. But there is an interesting new way that such chatbots can be used – as interfaces with specific publications, or collections of works. This suggests that we should exercise our personal agency in the most productive, compassionate way possible, despite possibly unavoidable outcomes. Participatory Decision-Making: Community-level initiatives that encourage participatory approaches to decision-making can empower local residents. But I also have little doubt the book will resonate deeply with the wider public, those that are now experiencing the effects and anxieties of crumbling societies in their daily lives.

Covid makes regular appearances in the book because it is very much a product of the crisis that we are building around ourselves. This could involve joining book clubs, discussion groups, or even partaking in critical online forums. It should be noted that this decline preceded the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic which took effect from 2020. Unfortunately, most leaders of the green profession and movement have been inconsistent in their challenging of the abuses of power during the last few years. Covid exacerbated the decline in many ways: early death, loss of health, distrust in government, loss of income, poor mental health, and corruption.

No doubt some will argue with his assessment of the severity of some problems, or argue that we have time or the capacity to turn some of these things around. Having made his case for the process of collapse being underway, Bendell spends the second half of the book inviting his readers to consider how they will choose to be in the face of this predicament and what sort of society they will choose to create through it. This book is part of a healing movement that extends beyond what we normally think of as ecological. One, that is a zoonotic disease that spread to humans because of our destruction and exploitation of natural habits.
