Living in a globalised world demands an awareness that words are never neutral. They are laden with culture-specific meanings, and often (especially when at their cultural finest) – untranslatable. Clear definitions of terms used in thinking and action towards environmentally and culturally sustainable futures, including resilience, need to be contextualised, both in terms of place and time of application. They need to be both accurate and open to discovery, novel directions, uncharted territories of innovation. But, hegemonic power is conservative. In order to preserve (its own) order, it controls change, selectively limiting or accelerating innovation in favour of that which does not challenge, but provide solutions for re-production and re-invention of its rule.
