Aurora Levins Morales: Where Greed Has No Power

Aurora Levins Morales is a writer and visionary whose work I want to know better. In the quotation below she identifies the problem facing humanity and, consequently, all life forms on our planet as well as the solution. I’m glad to see that her books are still in print.  

My job is to change the stories we tell and help us imagine a world where greed has no power, the earth is cherished and all people get to live safe and satisfying lives. Because once we truly imagine it, the pull to create it becomes irresistible.
