Jonathan Porritt "We're in a growth spiral, from which there is no politically acceptable exit." {by implication, need to look at changing the political climate, as
well as overpopulation, resource depletion, etc.}

Tim Gorringe "Redistribution is at the heart of what Leviticus is about" {is it at
the heart of what CEL is about? if not, how (why) to make it so? or is
that the territory of other organisations?}

T.G: "The situation in Greece - could be our situation here in 5 or 10 years

T.G:"The bonds of society wont work if the inequalities in it are too great."

Paul Bodenham: "How do we find our way to those alternative visions?" {need to set
sights on where going, not just analyse what's wrong with the present trajectory}

Mark Letcher "The person who delivers the message is as important as what they
say". using Gandhi's "Live the change you want to see". "What would the
world be like if we achieved all we want to?"

Jonathon Porrit and Ellen Teague by Martin Davis
