This came across the LA Indymedia newswire. I’m interested in the reduction of consumption and production, but not so sure about the three postulates… but will consider them.
Downshiftism – a philosophy established on the theoretical bases of the economic decrease. According to Jean-François Jaudon, this contemporary philosophy is defined by the three following postulates:
– spirituality can fight against the worst of the shelves of the companies of the Western type, the consumerism,
– the search for political solution to the ecological problems has as a sine qua non indispensable condition the exit of its corollary and consumer society, the economic growth,
– the intensity of the disorder of the end of the consumer society will be inversely proportional to the level of awakening by the citizens of this end.
