From Peter Senge in Leader to Leader Journal: As individuals and organizations, we have never had to be concerned about how our day-to-day decisions, like the products we make and buy and the energy we use, affect people and larger living systems thousands of miles away, even on the other side of the planet.

From Leader to Leader Journal: The word revolution has many different meanings. We often use the word to represent political revolutions. And then there are techno-economic-cultural revolutions such as the Industrial Revolution, where in many ways virtually everything about society shifted—the nature of the economy, core technologies, how people lived, where people lived, and how they saw the world around them. But while the Industrial Revolution vaulted society dramatically forward in many ways, it also put us on a path that is so fundamentally contradictory to nature — both the nature of living systems in general and human nature — that it can't possibly continue. It is not sustainable.
