Toward a Legal System in Tune with Nature and Community
What can our legal system do to contribute to solving the great crises of our times?
Rules restrain but also enable. Law elevates this capacity onto a higher plane but succumbs to its dark side when shaped by vested interests extending cleverly their tyranny upon humanity and nature. Things do not have to be this way. As this book vividly explains law can be turned into an instrument for defending the planet and its inhabitants from the encroachments of financialized commodification. - Yanis Varoufakis, former Minister of Finance of Greece
