Are you a Cultural Creative?
( I borrowed heavily from a piece written by Nick Kettles for the Ecologist magazine, which is a fabulous magazine)
A growing group of people in the west are referred to as ‘cultural creatives’-people who combine a serious concern for their inner life with a strong passion for social activism. Cultural creatives care deeply about the destruction of nature; are willing to pay higher taxes or spend money for legitimate green goods, but at the same time also have a intense interest in spiritual and psychological development; in the importance of maintaining relationships, and in helping others make changes that are pleasant and fulfilling.
There’s no doubt that it’s better to live in a society where people are awake and taking action rather than inert and unconscious.
