Social systems scientist and author Riane Eisler is a contributor to the discussion in The Great Transition Initiative forum on The Climate Movement: What’s Next? at greattransition.org.
In “A Caring Economy Is Key”, Eisler comments that climate change and other environmental threats are the result of a fundamentally imbalanced socioeconomic system. “It should not surprise us that neither [capitalism or socialism] can help us effectively address climate change or other environmental crises. Both are not only antiquated; both perpetuated traditions of domination, be it of people or of nature”.
Eisler writes that we can change our course and bring about a Great Transition if we focus on root causes rather than symptoms—focusing on groups who are working to shift from domination systems to partnership systems.
