“Today, many things indicate that we are going through a transitional period, when it seems that something is on the way out and something else is painfully being born. It is as if something were crumbling, decaying, and exhausting itself –while something else, still indistinct, were rising from the rubble.”

–Vaclav Havel

Culturally & socially we are struggling with a misfit between the work & learning we need to do to have a just & sustainable economy & an inhabitable planet and the taken for granted social forms we rely on to organize ourselves. Our frustrations with the Act & its related policies are only one instance of this misfit.
