Having an acute interest in climate change, I found Cormac Cullinan's thoughts helped me better understand the importance each of us have in caring for the earth, or at least doing what we can to keep it in a state suitable for human habitation.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A Mild-mannered Call For A Paradigm Shift 27 janvier 2012
Par SLS - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
In his new edition of Wild Law, Cormac Cullinen applies his legal background to the position that Planet Earth has inherent natural rights, going as far as to include a "manifesto" which specifically verbalizes these rights. In its several starts and introductions, this book lays out how modern (mostly Western) civilization has been conducting a calculated assault on the planet. It's not that we do not have enough law, but that we do not have the RIGHT law, or in his nomenclature an "Earth Governance Holarchy". He proposes that an international covenant should be developed and enforced, by which all nations would literally swear to Cullinan's "Universal Declaration of Mother Earth Rights". (It is this Declaration, included as an appendix, which is one of the 2 new additions in this second edition.)

While blaming the legalities of the American Constitution in one sentence and calling for new "legal structures and political establishments" in the other, Cullinan clearly believes the world did not respond to his manifesto's first edition in 2002 with the requisite attitude change. Unfortunately, I fear this edition will be no more effective. Although I do indeed agree with the need and the urgency to treat our planet more benignly (and I agree with his new concept that governance should be in balance with nature, not a conquest of it), his style here is frankly lacking luster and spirit. He uses a terminology which becomes clichéd and forced, making countless references to cultural DNA, Gaia, and holons.

Rather quickly, I found his messages to be more meandering than meaty, repeating at frequent intervals across 15 chapters that lose their distinctiveness. Some readers will find Cullinan's approach calming and convincing, while others will find the repetition unrelenting and uninspired. For a book with the word "manifesto" in its subtitle, any reader might well expect a more robust and highly energized read. Perhaps what Cullinan's original message needed was not a second edition, but a more efficiently pointed and poignant first one.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Read for Inspiration, Not for Practicle Application 21 mars 2012

"Wild Law: A Manifesto for Earth Justice" is a call for the next evolution of modern civilization. Some criticism of this book has centered on the practical application of what this book calls for - I didn't read it as a manifesto of practical change, but instead as a manifesto of philosophical change. Humans, whether we want to admit to it or not, are an integral part of the world's ecosystem; we cannot disconnect ourselves from it through scripture or cybernetics... no matter what we do to ourselves - our bodies, our brains, our religions, our civilizations - we will still be a part of the whole. Some would call this the Gaia theory, but to me it is just obvious, common sense. If you kill the predators in an ecosystem, the ecosystem will change; if you alter how we do something, it will change the ecosystem. Everything is connected to some degree or another.

What "Wild Law" proposes is that we alter our laws - our very civil structure - to take into account that we are a part of the greater system, and what we do affects that system. Unless we blow the atmosphere off this planet, whether humans are here or not and whether this planet can support human life or not, history has shown that some form of life will likely continue on planet Earth. If we can evolve our civilization to live more in sync with our planet, its ecosystem, and every other living thing, we can enhance our chances of continuing to be a part of that system.

A Guide to my Book Rating System:

1 star = The wood pulp would have been better utilized as toilet paper.
2 stars = Don't bother, clean your bathroom instead.
3 stars = Wasn't a waste of time, but it was time wasted.
4 stars = Good book, but not life altering.
5 stars = This book changed my world in at least some small way.
