Part 1: Skills for a changing world
Chapter 6: Commons Thinking: the ability to envisage and enable a viable future through connected action
By Justin Kenrick, University of Glasgow, and PEDAL--Portbello Transition Town
- we live in a common life-world upon which we all depend,
- any problems stem from a breakdown in relationships, and
- solutions are primarily about restoring these relationships
- one's well-being ultimately depends on controlling the devalued other (whether other life forms, other humans, or other aspect of oneself),
- problems are about the lack of such control, and
- the solution involves the dominant realm (the mind, the 'developed' world, the adult, the expert, or humans in general) imposing control on the supposedly inferior realm.
Moving towards a society based on Commons sufficiency requires recovering a Commons way of thinking and relinquishing dominance thinking, the dualistic problem solving approach underpinning non-egalitarian and unsustainable social systems. Several questions follow from this:
- How do we make the transition from a system in which problems are made worse by the way solutions are imposedㅡimposed by a supposedly superior realm on a supposedly inferior realmㅡto a system that no longer divides the world into superior and inferior realms?
