Most of our big systems—education, healthcare, government, business—are failing our communities. What if we stopped trying to fix them? Deborah Frieze says it’s not possible to change big systems—we can only abandon them and start over or offer hospice to what’s dying. This talk explores the underlying beliefs in our culture that continue to prop up the global mindset and shares a radical theory of change that reveals how localism is the hope of the future—and you have a critical role to play.
MARG is sharing this resource as it has many lessons to impart. For those who cannot 'walk out' and abandon dying systems around us, such as Education, Healthcare and other frontline service professions, we salute you and acknowledge that you are doing valuable hospicing work by staying within these failing systems. For other who chose to 'walk out' and be part of emergent phenomena, there are lessons to learn here about connecting up wtih other trailblazers to strengthen the local alternatives that you are part of creating.
