The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community
©2006 Army Armstrong Films, LLC
(60 minutes)

In this call for a change to the ways we think about our lives and run our socioeconomic system, author, lecturer, and engaged citizen David Korten lays out the impending challenges. "We humans have come to the end of a long and deeply destructive era. It is time to turn this world around for the sake of our children. Change is now inevitable. Business as usual is over--peak oil, climate change, the collapse of the U.S. dollar, and spreading social disintegration are poised to bring a dramatic restructuring to every aspect of human life."

Deftly weaving words and images, Korten contrasts the dominator model of Empire that has existed since the ancient cultures of Egypt and Mesopotamia with the partnership model of Earth Community that preceded these imperial civilizations. He argues convincingly that we must again build societies and economic systems that emphasize relationships over wealth, and interdependence over competition. In doing so, we must change the underlying stories to ones supporting and celebrating peace, sustainability, social justice, and equity.

The spiral into chaos that is so prevalent in all parts of the globe is a sure indicator that the old stories no longer serve us. Korten's clear articulation of the interdependence of all life and the central role of relationship is one story that everyone should hear.
