Invest in culture. Be an art lover and you will find you consume less. You will get depths and start a better understanding of the world you live in. These are the great messages from designer Vivienne Westwood's Active Resistance Manifesto.
The AR manifesto reveals that in the pursuit of art the art lover becomes resistant to propaganda. This ethic arms him with a sane outlook on life. Westwood's Active Resistance Manifesto is influenced by Ervin Laszlo’s amazing book “The Chaos Point”. "The Chaos Point" shows a concise overview of the present world situation showing where we are and how we get here. Laszlo claims, for the next six to seven years - roughly until the end of 2012 - we have the opportunity to head off trends that would lead to a critical tipping point. Beyond this `chaos point,' we either evolve to a safer more sustainable world, or the social, economic, and ecological systems that frame our life become overstressed and break down. He does not only identifies the problems every one and every society now suffers from, but offers a solution.
