Donnachadh McCarthy, former deputy chair of the Lib-Dems, is a man who has seen what damage Wounded Leaders can lead us into, without feelings and conscience tempering their actions. McCarthy highlights the collapse of governance in modern day Britain, which he names a s a Prostitute State. He believes that reform is both necessary and achievable.
In a new article he speaks to The Ecologist about the collapse of British democracy and his hopes for reform. 21 years ago Donnachadh McCarthy became an active environmental campaigner after spending time with the Yanomami people in the heart of the Amazon forest and seeing first-hand the destruction wreaked there by the ‘civilised’ world. Since then he has helped local environmental campaigns, turned his home into a carbon negative retro eco-house, become Deputy Chair of the Liberal Democrats, written a regular eco-column for the Independent and worked as an eco-auditor advising businesses and charities.
