Welcome to my blog—Chronicle of Wickedness!
This little piece of the internet is a ‘brain-space’ for me to unload and share all of the issues I am learning about and processing during my course of study on sustainability.
Why ‘Chronicle of Wickedness’?
Chronicle because it is my written account of issues that are important to me as I encounter them in my course.
Wickedness, because in the first weeks of study, I was introduced to the idea of a ‘wicked problem’. In this instance, wicked does not mean bad (although many issues are often confronting, difficult and have dire consequences)—it means complex and resistant to being solved.
I explain it better here:
I have spent many years roaming this planet wondering about inequities, while at the same time being part of the system that has seldom had a good hard look at itself. There are myriad issues and problems, but in the Western world at least, I think we are stuck in the miasma of consumption.
It’s time, people, to research, discuss, and question what we are doing to this lovely blue and green planet.
In fact, it is long overdue!
