Description - Integrated Activism by Alexis Zeigler
"Activists of all kinds will be drawn to this impassioned, broad-sweeping treatise examining not only the hidden cause of all social progress, but also the hidden connections between ecology, economy, and policy--and showing how to use this information to effect real change now. How do peak oil, climate change, and the limits of growth affect abortion rights, income equality, and civil liberty? In this broad-gauge, impassioned treatise, author and activist Alexis Zeigler reveals the hidden connections between ecology, economics, politics, and social justice--and shows us how to use those connections to effect real, long-lasting change. Most activist movements suffer from a kind of tunnel vision, Zeigler says, in which the true causes and resulting side effects of the desired change are left unexamined--rendering the movements feeble, short-sighted, and ignorant of their own fallout. This cannot stand, says Zeigler. The only way to effectively deal with the complex problems we are facing is to realize, understand, and incorporate into our solutions the intrinsic interconnectedness of ecology, economics, politics, and social justice. The most-overlooked aspect of any given issue
