The Cry: A Manifesto for Change written for the benefit of humanity and the Earth
offers readers a powerful message of transformation.
Simple, concise and gently confronting, yet full of optimism and hope as it puts current affairs and our western lifestyle into perspective, drawing upon global atrocities and climatic events of this time. A comprehensive, thought provoking read for the masses.
Kim Venskunas' inspirational The Cry: A Manifesto for Change is a warning shot across the bows of the developed world. Both a cry of anguish at the state of the world today and a message of hope for the future.
Venskunas suggests that, in contrast, our world can achieve its highest potential within a generation, if we as readers can only heed the call for change. Her manifesto calls us to account for our apathy in making change happen, little by little convincing us that the time is now to stand up, make a stand, and make a difference, because, make no mistake, our very survival is at stake.
Stepping into the skirmish for your point of view amongst the cacophony of aspirational marketing messages and mind-numbing media offerings, The Cry offers three strategies – personal, local, and global – as ways of instigating global change. It argues that our current Western lifestyles cannot continue into the future, or we face the destruction of that which we hold most dear – our home. Each and every one of us is called to join the struggle to help the Earth save herself and, by extension, all life.
The Cry shows us that there is something we can do, right now, to effect change and begin the meaningful task of making the world a promised land and ourselves a more promising people.
As the Mona Lisa watches, The Cry speaks.
