A Turning Point

A Review of 
GAIA & the NEW POLITICS of LOVE: NOTES for a POLY PLANET
by Sasha Lessin, PhD

You must read Serena Anderlini-D’Onofrio’s GAIA & the NEW POLITICS of LOVE.

This electrifying work will be seen as a turning point, on the order of The Aquarian Conspiracy, The Greening of America, The Earth in Balance, as a seminal turning point in the paradigm with which we as a species face our existence on Earth.


Gaia and the New Politics of Love presents a meticulous philosophical and critical review of Western thought that bridges the dichotomies–energy-matter, competition-symbiosis, war-peace, male-female, postmodern-neomodern, abundance-scarcity, allopathic-holistic, WASP-colored, indigenous-techno, human-nonhuman, hope-fear, subject-object, sacred-practical, mind-body and love-hate–that have led us to the brink of extinction. Anderlini’s analysis points the way to center ourselves among these dichotomies, to embrace these apparent opposites that, processed discerningly, can enhance one another. In the discerning centering she proposes we find a path that can save our species and the planetary ecosystem from destruction.

Anderlini identifies LOVE as the overall panacea for humanity’s crises. Love, she shows, can be expanded from application of the methods developed in the polyamorous and bisexual communities. These communities, she demonstrates, have developed ways to engage in safe, consensual, mutually-enhancing, respectful ways of relating and celebrating personal choice as well as common welfare that evolve individuals and groups to ever-more inclusive and loving behaviors. She advocates the generalization to these evolving psychotechnologies and the ethos they imply to all humanity for its survival and contribution to the planet.
 

I cannot too highly recommend this book. It’ll change the way you and all who read it view our world and its possibilities.
