To build a truly sustainable economy and society we will have to realize a paradigm shift, breaking with some of our habits and getting rid of some of our goods.
Resetting means bringing closure to the past, deciding what of all that you value is worth preserving, then using the turbulence as an opportunity to change the rules of the game and invent the future. Reset is operating as if nothing is certain except uncertainty. (via Obama is Reset — Are You?)
This does not mean that we will have a worse life, just that our lifestye will be different.
