New Age, socialism and other millenarianisms: affirming and struggling with (post)socialism

Useful,, but scholarly takes on both the New Age and socialism are likely to miss core issues. Indeed, socialism is already (post)socialism. The core themes are simple: the nature of consciousness, meditation in action as the common denominator, and social justice as a post-buddhist reconstruction of Mahayana.

A blending of the two is entirely possible and relevant as long as New Agers can find a core issue with universal (and secular) significance and socialists can transcend their narrow socialfocus
