Being Human: A Question of Survival, explores what it means to be human today and exposes the means by which economic activity works to capture the human spirit and ensure it operates to benefit the economic system. Being Human: A Question of Survival offers an alternative lifestyle that allows us to retake control over our lives and ensure a healthy future.
The book deals with three basic ideas:
Without nature humans cannot survive.
Without natural resources from nature, much of economic activity as we know it today cannot continue.
Economic activity consumes the natural world that gives us life.
This is a circular self canibalising system. As we allow economic activity to consume resources, so we undermine the systems that provide life to our kind.
