Staying Optimistic in Troubled Times
This week, Glenn Aparicio Parry shares directly with listeners some of his own thoughts about current events, putting them in a larger historical context.
An uplifting but realistic peek at the founding of the United States, the history of the Republican and Democratic parties, emphasizing how much they have changed over time and could change again, perhaps even become defunct and have a new party form.
The questions he examines are: “Why stay optimistic during troubles times?” and “Is the world transforming in a positive way?” He reflects on human culture: Are we a destructive force that imagines we are separate and transcendent from nature? Or can we learn to listen and be directed by the wisdom that is found in the land? Can we merge ecological and social justice? Can we remember how to love nature, so that we love each other?
