REVIEW Å FOOTHILLFLYINGCLUB.CO Ï Paul Hawken

READ ä Blessed Unrest How the Largest Movement in the World Came into Being and Why No One Saw It Coming The New York Times bestselling examination of the worldwide movement for social and environmental changePaul Hawken has spent than a decade researching organizations dedicated to restoring the environment and fostering social justice From billion dollar nonprofits to sing. Paul Hawken s new book entitled Blessed Unrest How the Largest Movement in the World Came into Being and Why No One Saw It Coming makes a simple argument in a straightforward fashion This makes the book infinitely readable than another book that makes a similar argument in incomprehensible poetic prose Multitude War and Democracy in the Age of Empire by Antonio Negri and Michael Hardt The only problem with the clarity of Hawken s argument is that it brings into full relief its deficienciesThe book begins by chronicling the rapid rise of the NGO both in sheer numbers and in political power Somehow this multitude of NGOs is part of The Movement heading toward a consistent vision of a better world Hawken makes an analogy to an immune system where thousands of different cells each do one tiny thing and together the whole system creates a collective property called immunity Another analogy which Hawken doesn t make would be the similarity to free market economies where thousands of firms each independently just try to make money but overall the system achieves efficiency The clear message of the book is that even if only a small percentage of NGOs achieve their goals they will help further The Movement In a sense this kind of argument is motivated by the desire of progressives to believe we can win in the absence of a single unifying ideology The principle problem with the argument is the fuzzy concept of a Movement The diversity of NGOs is staggering and I don t see any real coherent goal that they all share In fact many conservative NGOs which presumably express at least somewhat real desires by real people are working at cross purposes with liberal NGOsIt s much better to think of this explosion of NGOs as simply the birth of a global civil society Just as we don t expect consensus in a republic among all the elected representative since their constituents are too diverse neither should we expect consensus among NGOs There s a word for this explosion of NGOs and it s not Movement it s Democracy Wood Pallet Projects: Cool and Easy-to-Make Projects for the Home and Garden (Fox Chapel Publishing) Learn How to Upcycle Pallets to Make One-of-a-Kind Furniture & Accessories, from Boxes to a Ukulele liberal NGOsIt s much better to think of this explosion of NGOs as simply the birth of a global civil society Just as we don t expect consensus in a republic among all the elected representative since their constituents are too diverse neither should we expect consensus among NGOs There s a word for this explosion of NGOs and it s not Movement it s Democracy
