Default The story of change (part 2 of "the story of stuff") - Video

It came out earlier this year but I just now had the chance to watch it:

Story of Change « The Story of Stuff Project

It is an interactive video about why "consumer choice" and "voting with your wallet" will not save the planet. Its funny - and it basically says what I once wrote here, that it is a good place to start doing personal action, like using less electricity, getting organic products and so on - but that it cannot stop there. That it simply is not enough to change lightbulbs, take shorter showers and put the trash into the recycling bin.

Its a short video and I recommend it. Have fun.

Also - what type of helper are you? Take the quiz at the end of the video and if you like to share it, do so.

For me it was this:
Know your idols: Who said "Hitler killed five million Jews. It is the greatest crime of our time. But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher's knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs.". (Solution: "Mahatma" Ghandi)

Stop terraforming Earth (wordpress)

"Humans are storytellers. These stories then can become our reality. Only when we loose ourselves in the stories they have the power to control us. Our culture got lost in the wrong story, a story of death and defeat, of opression and control, of separation and competition. We need a new story!"
