In her newest book, HOW TO END INJUSTICE EVERYWHERE, psychologist Melanie Joy reveals the common denominator driving all forms of injustice, from sexism to speciesism to abusive interpersonal relationships and group dynamics.Joy explains that all injustices-such as racism, patriarchy, animal exploitation, environmental degradation, and domestic abuse-share a common denominator, which is relational dysfunction, or dysfunctional ways of relating: to other individuals, between social groups, and to nonhuman animals and the environment.Relational dysfunction stems from a particular psychology, a "nonrelational mentality." This mentality causes us to think, feel, and act in ways that violate integrity, harm dignity and lead to unjust power imbalances. Joy sheds light on the nonrelational mentality and explains how it shapes and is shaped by the various oppressive, or "nonrelational" systems in our world that cause widespread injustice.Until those of us who are helping to bring about justice understand relational dysfunction and know how to change it, we risk recreating injustice even as we work to end it, and our movements are at risk of cannibalizing themselves.HOW TO END INJUSTICE EVERYWHERE is a call for anyone working toward justice for humans, animals, or the environment to unify behind a shared "metamission" of creating a more relational world. The book provides an empowering and unique approach to ending injustice, and it offers not only an examination of nonrelational systems and behaviours, but also practical tools to help raise awareness, reduce infighting, and build more resilient and impactful justice movements.
