'Networks are cooperative not competitive.
They are true grass roots:
self-generating, self-organizing, sometimes self-destructing.
They represent a process, a journey, not a frozen structure....
a network is both intimate and expansive...
Networks are the strategy by which small groups
can transform an entire society.'

- Marilyn Ferguson, The Aquarian Conspiracy. [1982].

'I have had with my friend Wes Jackson a number of conversations about the necessity of getting out of movements - even movements that have seemed necessary and dear to us - when they have lapsed into self-righteousness and self-betrayal, as movements seem almost invariably to do. People in movements too readily learn to deny to others the rights and privileges they demand for themselves.'

- Wendell Berry, 'in distrust of movements.' In Orion. [Summer 1999]. 18, 3.
