How We Lost the Common Good & How We Might Restore It with Beth Bartlett

Exploring the idea if the loss of the "The Commons" ties into our loss of protection of the common good.

Beth Bartlett, Ph.D, is an educator, author, activist and spiritual companion. She returns to the show with another thought provoking concept few of us seem to learn in our educational institutions but many should understand. This program is about how we lost our concept of the Common Good and that loss just might have begun quite sometime ago. We'll delve into the structures that drove people from self-sustainability and self- reliance into becoming wage slaves in cities, into patriarchy and capitalism. It's quite a explanation no one should miss. Beth will also offer ideas about how we just might restore this all important idea that serves humanity - putting importance not on just ourselves as individuals, but on the trive, the common good for us all so that we all thrive and prosper. We'll also delve into the loss of our appreciation of vastness and what that might have to do with the loss of the common good.
