After being reared in an orphanage, the Reverend John Papworth has been at various times a baker, journalist, economist - London University graduate, ecologist, a self proclaimed 'futurist' and Church of England priest. He was under licence to officiate from the Bishop of London until his remarks about the non-sinfulness of shoplifting in giant stores attracted global media attention and caused him to be sacked from his non-stipendary post. (He was, he says, "concerned with the way the giants were destroying local community life" and argued, "Jesus taught we should love our neighbours" - he had said nothing about loving Marks & Spencers). With the help of 'Fritz' E.F. Schumacher and Sir Herbert Read, he founded and edited Resurgence magazine (now edited by Satish Kumar). He has also been: a parliamentary Labour candidate, 1955; for nine years personal assistant to the then President of Zambia, Dr Kenneth Kaunda; consultant to Greenpeace; associate editor for The Ecologist magazine.
