We are facing a crisis - or an opportunity hidden in danger. The fact is, our ruling myths are in a mess. They've failed. We know we have to change, but to do that we have to chuck out politics-as-usual, economics-as-usual, pretty much everything. We must drop the played-out complacencies of left and right. We desperately need to rethink all flavours of capitalism, and all strains of socialism - none of them really work consistently or in the long term. And so we have to completely reinvent the ruling myths of our culture.
The good bit is that doing it should be a lot of fun.
