ABSTRACT. From Rio to Rio with Kyoto, Copenhagen and Durban in between, the conclusion remains the same: There is fundamental disagreement on the realities of this planet and the ways we can tackle them. A decisive breakthrough would necessitate both wider contexts and a larger participatory base to identify problems, to formulate policies, to broaden and synchronize our actions. But, who in politics is sincerely motivated for the long-range and far reaching policies? This does not pay off politically as such policies are often too complex and too time-consuming to survive the frequency and span of national elections as well as the taste or comprehension of the median voter. Our crisis is deep and structural: it is a recession of courage, retreat of our ideas, all which leads us into a deep, moral abyss. pp. 90–106
