The Necessary Revolution

The Necessary Revolution is another engaging book by Peter Senge who also wrote The Fifth Discipline.

Here are interesting quotes from the book:

  1. People living under growing stress, whether physical, psychological or economic, have great difficulty acting as stewards for the future.
  2. The real threats of collapse have more to do with denial than with unawareness.
  3. The Industrial quest for efficiency and standardization has gradually unleashed relentless forces for homogenization, destroying cultural diversity just as it has destroyed biological diversity.
  4. Industries, either knowingly or unknowingly, have been able to pass along waste management costs to society at large, just as they have passed along public health costs resulting from toxins  embedded in their products or processes.
