Sample text

Carr interprets the social and philosophical evolution of bioregionalism based on a decade of taped interviews and wide participation in bioregional events. Bioregionalism did not emerge in the 1970s perfectly conceived or practiced. Intense and informed debate about the weaknesses of the essential tenets of bioregional living is constant. Without recognizing the diversity of voices from which bioregionalism originates, and the context-driven manner in which the bioregional movement evolves, academic critiques can only be short-sighted and reductionist.

Bioregionalists temper this understanding by remembering the fate of 1960s-era leaders who either succumbed to the vainglory of media-created charisma or treated dogmatic allegiance to indulgent rhetoric as more important than empowering a self-actualized citizenry. The compromise that seems to have been accepted is that leaders at the bioregional level will most likely be those who best put to practice of locally-focused resistance and cultural renewal. Academics and ideologues attempting to tie bioregionalism into a variety of their debates have also made Sale’s treatise a target for critique.

In a range of national settings, the language of bioregionalism has been appropriated to assist in conceptualizing experiments in institutional and organizational reform. However, these government-sponsored developments have occurred with little reference to or contact with the grass-roots bioregional movement. Explicit uses of bioregional terminology include the September 1991 Memorandum of Understanding signed between heads of federal and state resource management agencies active within California state borders (California State Resources Agency 1991).
