Frances Moore Lappe believes that we must practice "living democracy" as the only effective way to solve today's social & environmental crises. "Living democratcy" involves practicing day-to-day decision making that is based on life-sustaining values in contrast to corporate, profit-driven values. Her 2007 book, Getting a Grip: Clarity, Creativity & Courage in a World Gone Mad is available from [VisionWorks].
