Greening of America, the 1969 Book by Charles Reich

Greening of America

Charles Reich said the Green Revolution had already begun spreading rapidly through society by 1970, bending it towards a more humane community of reasoning individuals in touch with themselves, each-other, and Nature. “It will originate with the individual and culture, and it will change politics only as its final act… This is the revolution of the new generation.” – Greening of America, by Charles Reich

Charles Reich explains the American Crisis as:

1. hypocrisy of unjust war on the poor; 2. political, corporate, and legal corruption; 3. industrial destruction of natural environments; 4. helplessness of common people due to weakened democracy and liberties; 5. meaningless pollution of work and commercial society; 6. apathetic and hostile anti-community; 7. individuals enslaved to the system. We feel we have no control and are powerless to make constructive changes.
