Metanoia describes the philosophy of an emerging social movement which rejects materialism and the driving force of greed. The term refers to the changed mindset of people who are lucky enough to escape from addiction to consumerism. Live more with Less is their motto. Metanoians realise that the quality of life on Earth can be enhanced if, and ONLY if, humans leap laughing from the life threatening wheel of industrial growth and discover the true sources of happiness in comradeship and enjoyment of the simple things in life. Metanoia is the opposite of Affluenza.
The philosophy of Metanoia was developed during the 1990s in the writing and work of John Seymour and Will Sutherland (joint authors of the New Complete Book of Self Sufficiency). Its origins go back much further to the radical ideas of William Blake and William Cobbett who questioned the nature and direction of progress in industrial society.
