We are excited to announce a change in the distribution of Green Social Thought. GST will become an on-line publication that will reach a much wider audience. It will continue the important discussion that was started many years ago.
Continued economic growth now threatens the very existence of people and nearly all life on earth. Yet we live under the political and cultural hegemony of monopoly capitalism, a system that maintains that economic growth is the solution to all social problems and relies on unsustainable growth for its continued existence. Our challenge is to advocate and create an alternative that empowers people across the planet while establishing a new economy and global social order based on equity, social justice and peace. We believe that a truly democratic economic order can enhance the quality of life. Achieving that will require eliminating unnecessary production, ensuring satisfaction of needs for all people, and placing the survivability of the ecosphere at the center of our social, political, and cultural life. Green Social Thought welcomes the reading, thinking, and writing of all who recognize this threat to life on this planet, and who want to actively become part of the solution.
