The post-development network
The network of growth objectors for the post-development
More than one century of development, of economical growth, of
a more or less forced march - depending the hemisphere on which we are
living - towards technical and scientific progress, of rationalisation
of economy and jobs - division of labour, constant productivity increase
-, of massive industrialisation and exploitation of the nature. The expected
result, this better future promised to our forefather, did not come. On
the other hand, the economical inequality between the different parts
of the world, and within the nations, has dramatically increased; the
social conditions in the rich countries is getting worse; under the ruling
of consumerism, cultures are disappearing; other are today regressing;
the ecological destruction is accelerated. The situation is sombre.
« We have not to prepare a better future,
we should live otherwise the present » François
Hope glimmer: the initiatives of men and women in the South and in the
North, who are trying to take over with courage their future in hand again:
resisting is an imperative.
