So far, remotely done power & glory—as via government, big business, formal education, church—has succeeded to the point where gross defects obscure actual gains. In response to this dilemma & to these gains a realm of intimate, personal power is developing—power of the individual to conduct his own education, find his own inspiration, shape his own environment & share his adventure with whoever is interested. Tools that aid this process are sought & promoted by the WHOLE EARTH CATALOG.
