Example text

The fabric of global society is woven with diverse communities. Some are abuzz with cultural experimentation, political intensity and technical innovation. Others are slow-paced bastions of traditional culture, direct democracy and small-is-beautiful technology. A few combine reflection, craft skill and high esthetics into a kind of “sophisticated simplicity,” reminiscent of the Zen art of antiquity. Most are admixtures of countless subcultures. The plurality of ways is deeply cherished for the choice it offers individuals and the richness it offers social life.

But they do not seize it. The moment of unity and possibility is squandered, in a frenzy of militarism, suspicion and polarization. The empty rhetoric of Earth Summit 2002 is an obituary for the lost era of sustainable development. Gradually, a coordinated campaign is able to control terrorism at “manageable” levels, although episodic attacks periodically invigorate the politics of fear. The mantra of economic growth, trade liberalization and structural adjustment continues to be heard in the halls of global governance organizations, such as the WTO, the boardrooms of transnational corporations and corridors of national governments.

The prospects for a Great Transition depend on the adaptations of all institutions—government, labor, business, education, media and civil society. But three emerging global actors—intergovernmental organizations, transnational corporations and non-governmental organizations—move to center stage. The fourth essential agency is less tangible—public awareness and values, especially as manifested in youth culture. Meanwhile, other powerful global players—criminal organizations, terrorist rings and special interest groups—lurk in the wings, threatening to steal the show.
