In the first part of your reflection, you synthesized Helena Norberg-Hodge ideas and offered your own evaluation of her text. In this part, I would like to focus more attention to your mentioned, as well as author, one-way notion of development, linear progress path. This perception of the world leads to unification of the systems, which develops the same agendas for the desired outcome and in the same time it depends to have constant growth. However, the natural world does not fit in these frames of similarities and unstoppable augmentation, because it has its own laws that cannot be tamed. Thus this created the alienation between expected outcome and the real results. In some point, Helena’s attention to global and local visually expresses this gap and she considers this to be the reason that caused the problem created by unification. I believe it is important to understand that unification does not bring equality and equity, but on the contrary it caused gentrification.
