Break Through: From the Death of Environmentalism to the Politics of Possibility

I`m reading "Break Through: From the Death of Environmentalism to the Politics of Possibility" at the moment. I think the book is like eating vegetables. You know there 
are lots of vitimains in them but you'd rather eat something a bit more appatising. 

That brings me on to a simple point that i forgot to post some time back:
Resisting the status quo is vital, accepting the possiblity of radically revising views is so important. The idea of 'group think' is a very real threat. People seem to revel in certain assumptions, the sort of assumptions that somone will allude to in a joke and everyone will chuckle. Whilst this easy comfort is all very well for a friendly social grouping it is deadly for the prospects of comming up with original ideas and ways of working. All the excititing stuff happens at the uncomfortable margins, where people are thinking carefully and clearly. This is where the authors of my current piece of reading are.
