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.
"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going to get better. It's not." - The Lorax

If you would like to contribute to keeping this site available for all, your support would be greatly appreciated!
