Johnson argues that it is time to start seeking ways of letting the economy slow down gracefully, and that if this small, beautiful planet is to be a true home for our descendents, we will have to find satisfactions more in the social, emotional, and spiritual realms than the material and competitive. He points to peaceful cooperation as the key to human evolutionary success, and explores how we can begin moving in this direction now.
