I think I’ve got something cool to share, from a home town gal at that.

The decreased resiliency that stems from enforced dependency is especially troubling in the current time of converging socio-ecological crises including climate change, peak oil, increasing fresh water shortages, depletion of soil fertility worldwide, decimation of ocean fisheries from overfishing, economic destabilization, increasingly apparent limits to the biosphere‟s ability to absorb pollutants, and more.
I argue that understanding enforced dependency as a driving force behind the many converging crises we face can serve as a springboard for effective sustainability-oriented action aimed at reducing enforced dependency while also increasing resiliency at multiple levels within societies and nature.
