"Post capitalist philanthropy is a paradox in terms. A paradox is the appropriate starting place for the complex, entangled, messy context we find ourselves in as a species." This is how long-time activists, political strategists, and accidental philanthropy advisors Alnoor Ladha and Lynn Murphy start their treatise on Post Capitalist Philanthropy. This book is a result of decades of practice and research, including a hundred plus interviews with leading activists, philanthropists, philosophers, social scientists, cosmologists and wisdom keepers. The authors take us on a journey from the history of wealth accumulation to the current logic of late-stage capitalism to the lived possibilities of other ways of knowing, sensing and being that can usher in life-centric models. This "ontological shift", as they call it, is at the heart of the text - creating new-ancient-emerging realities is not simply about how we redistribute wealth or "fight power", but rather, how we perceive and embody our actions in relationship to a dynamic, animistic world and cosmos. This book is made available by Daraja Press on behalf of the Transition Resource Circle.
