Issue 9 (Spring 2013) of B Beyond Magazine. From the Editor’s Letter:
As we said goodbye to a mixed blessings and fair share of tragedies 2012 and welcomed 2013, we are determined to keep upbeat about it – especially as humankind escaped the vague but darkly portentous Mayan propechy of The End of the World.
We dare to hope that this year will bring a little light at the end of the recession tunnel for millions of beleaguered people in Europe who have borne the brunt of austerity measures, spiralling energy costs, crippling debt and shrinking incomes.
We hope the globalisation will unite climate control and sustainability crusaders, that profiteering will be mitigated by a degree of compassion, that art and culture will become a beacon of peace through mutual understanding , that all people in the developed world will remember how to be a little more human and and a little less technology driven.
Here is to a happy 2013 to all B Beyond readers and contributors.
