gradual small scale change

deep green resistance seems to push for an overnight dismantling of industrial civilization by targeting critical nodes of infrastructure and accepting the subsequent mass population die-off as collateral damage.  there are also militant anarchists and other radical groups like DGR that sympathize with the notion of forcefully implementing a direct change on a massive scale.  other radicals and anarchists opt instead for a multiplicity of small scale grass roots projects being employed sporadically at the local level, creating cells of alternative living that serve as bases from which new human communities can emerge.  do people even have time for small scale change to gradually shape the future?  there is a great deal of pressure to think in terms of rapid, global-scale radical transformation.  what if this is only possible through a gradual amalgamation of grass roots efforts at the local levels?  how does one choose where to get involved?
