The term "Green" could be defined as
"environmentalist", but there is a lot more to it than that. The Green
movement includes green politics, green/ecological living, green businesses, and
green/ecological products. Green politics ranges from dedicated Green Party members
and/or Green movement political activists worldwide to the major environmental
organizations to the majority of Americans who consider themselves pro-environment.
Then there is the left-green political movement, the deep ecology spiritual/political
movement, and the environmental justice movement.
When I use the term Green I am referring to a holistic 1960's-style worldview that includes ecology, peace, feminism, social justice, the human potential movement, the counterculture, etc.
For info about socially responsible businesses building a Green economy in America, see Co-op America.
For more info about the U.S. Green political movement,
see The Greens/Green Party U.S.A. and
The Green Parties of North
America. Ralph Nader was the Green
Party candidate for President in 2000. (Note: My personal position was
and is "Think and live Green, vote
Democratic to defeat the Republicans.") Here is one version of the 10 key values of the U.S. Green Movement:
1. Ecological Wisdom
2. Social Justice
3. Grassroots Democracy
6. Community-Based Economics
8. Respect for Diversity
9. Personal and Global Responsibility
10. Future Focus/Sustainability.

Welcome to the EmpowermentResources.com website!
The goal of EmpowermentResources.com is to provide the information- especially the
books and the Internet
links- to allow people to empower themselves, take charge of their own lives, and
collectively take charge of society. EmpowermentResources.com is openly Green in philosophy and seeks to blend the personal,
cultural, political, and ecological aspects of the Green movement.
In EmpowermentResources.com and EmpowermentBooks.com I attempt to combine the best info from the personal growth and self-help movements, voluntary simplicity, holistic health, natural living, vegetarianism, alternative medicine, the counterculture, the co-operative and communal movements, the Green movement, the left, eco-feminism, and a focus on building a peaceful, humane, co-operative ecologically sustainable society into one overall strategy, vision, website and online bookstore. I also include a book proposal in this website, but at the moment this is a lower priority for me than expanding EmpowermentResources.com and EmpowermentBooks.com.
