Mary Hoff How did you decide which institutions to keep and which to throw away — the United Nations, individual governments, things like that? Jonathon Porritt I should have been much bolder about that, to be honest. But there was only so much perturbation in the system that I thought people could really cope with.
What would you like people to do after reading The World We Made? Psychologically, we spend too much time on that. We devote a huge amount of our political and psychological energy to trying to stop more bad things from happening.
