Q: Do you have a vision of an alternative societal or world order (in socio-political and political terms)? — A.C., Sweden

A: +Yes, A.C.

By counteracting fear, gratefulness reduces and eventually eliminates aggression.

By promoting frugality, gratefulness counteracts the prevailing consumerism and its economic underpinnings.

And by promoting appreciation of the earth as gratuitous gift, gratefulness counteracts exploitation of Earth’s resources and promotes environmental rightness.
