Reworking Success: New Communities at the Millennium is an eloquent call for fundamental social change to deal with the overwhelming challenges facing humankind at the start of the new millennium.
Well-known futurist Robert Theobald argues that we must adopt new goals for the 21st century if humankind is to continue to inhabit the planet. Challenging the current dogma of maximum economic growth, globalization and international competitiveness, Theobald maintains that our whole notion of “success” requires a complete overhaul: that the required criteria of success for the next phase of human social evolution are ecological integrity and a respect for all of nature, effective participatory decision-making, and social cohesion based on profoundly changed concepts of justice. These radically changed goals would force us to reconstruct our communities. Reworking Success documents the steady slide of “successes” into failures that characterizes the latter part of this century, and then describes the new role that citizens are adopting to help create new kinds of success.
