is an open dialogue dedicated to developing ideas and strategies for
social and economic reform.
|Over the past century we have
witnessed incredible advances in our knowledge of science and
technology. Yet for all these advances millions upon millions of people
worldwide continue to suffer from starvation, homelessness, and
oppression. We continue to release toxic chemicals into our air, water,
and land although we know we cannot survive without the elements they
provide us with. Too many people seem intent on enhancing what they see
as their position among men and their personal lifestyles at the
expense of the rest of mankind. Is it just me or is there something
wrong with this picture?
This is not to say that there is nothing good
occurring in the world. In fact there are many wonderful people and
organizations out there dedicated to helping others and protecting the
ecosystem that we depend on for survival. And its not that people are
necessarily aware that the actions they take may result in causing
great distress to others. Or that anyone recognizes the possible long
term effects on the environment produced through new technologies.
Perhaps the concern here is not that there are
people who are unaware or fail to recognize these consequences, but
that there are too many people who either don't care or don't feel as
if they have any ability or power to change the situation. If man is
ever to realize his full potential and that of his creations, then his
societies and his concepts of economics will need to evolve along a
higher level of ethics.
The challenge is to see past all the political
and corporate agendas, and promote the basic needs and respect all
people deserve for a healthy and fulfilling life. This is not a task
for a single individual to dictate, but a monumental effort to bring
people of every background and culture together via the internet to
help create the future we all deserve today. The more of us that are
involved in this effort, the more significant the results that are
produced will be.
To that end, we open this site to anyone and
everyone to bring forth their concerns, ideas, and strategies they feel
need addressing in creating a world filled with peace and abundance for
all. If all you wish to do is complain, degrade, and lay blame, please
take some time to reconsider and find a more constructive way to
express your concerns. There are many problems in the world, but it is
not our place to lay blame, merely to find solutions.
Send your comments, concerns, ideas, and
hopefully solutions through our Comment
Form; as long as they contain nothing hateful,
destructive, or violent in them; and we will post them for discussion
on our Forum Page link. The intelligence,
creativity, and innovative capacities of the great wealth of common
people that exist on this planet far exceeds that of any government or
corporation ever conceived of. And the only outside influences we have
to take into account are our families and friends and their well being.
In addition, we present a page of Site Links, from our own research
and your suggestions, of sites that are compatible with creating a
better world for all. And last but not least we present the opening
section to The Art of Survival, an alternative way of looking at economics that
expresses our own concepts which led to the creation of this website.

nothing is going to get better. It's
