The gap between rich and poor, weak and powerful grows ever wider, In parallel with increasing threats of violence, environmental destruction and economic collapse, and the loss of a happiness falsely built on the fruits of wealth. The catch that Curle so vividly describes in this book is that we cannot destroy this modern Hydra, because we are part of it. Yet there is another model, an alternative reality, and by showing us examples from all over the world of this other reality at work, he show us that it is possible, even at this late stage, to tame the Hydra, and use its skills and energy to built a safer, happier future. He writes: The chief characteristic of this emerging world is the interconnectedness of the destructive forces, the interwoven and increasingly interacting world-wide forces of economic, political and military power: a global culture of violence.
