Let's See Ourselves By Gustavo Esteva with Juliette Beck

Localization means being rooted in our own place, in our own culture. At the same time, we are open to creating coalitions with others like us who are also locally rooted and discontented with the so-called “modern world.” We share the belief that it is important to be ruled by the traditions originating from our own culture—not by norms established by the capitalist economy or the nation-state. We also believe in defining the rules collectively, by the community, by the group, by the we. For us this is autonomy.
