A United Front Creating:
The Energy and Economy Paradigm Shift
Did we forget something as everyone was going about doing their own thing?
IMAGINE: Living by the shores of a seaside community. Of a sudden, a tsunami warning of great magnitude is received. We see one person going to cut the grass. Another goes to upgrade to a 3D, full wall, flat screen TV. Several others join together for beer and watch football. Another goes to fix the kitchen sink …………….... as the tsunami, or in real life, global warming, energy stagnation crisis, economic strangulation system for the majority , continue to accelerate unabated, decade after decade, while traffic thickens like fast drying glue.
Would not MAJOR UPGRADES in our stagnant concepts of ENERGY and ECONOMY give us FREEDOM to do our own thing with far greater capacity…….WITHOUT creating lethal, looming threats?
Poverty is not a game to be played forever. The complete eradication of poverty was possible in mid-20th century. With 21st century science, it defies intelligence why poverty still exists. Our stagnant views of Energy and the Economy require a dramatic UPGRADE.
I can understand through the insights of Industrial and Organizational Psychology, the effects the “me generation” can have on groups and systems, that the glory of the ego can become more important than life itself. However, a repetitious broken record, akin to the ‘rise and fall of civilizations’, goes counter to the Life Source.
It is not as if we are JUST receiving the insights of well adjusted (versus mal-adjusted) group/community/system behavior from General Systems and Industrial and Organizational Psychology. Historically, Philosophies and Religious doctrines, even the Old Testament are rampant with the guidelines of healthy, sustainable, group/community behavioral maturing and evolution (as likewise, the New Testament presents for the “I”, “Me”, “Individual” evolutionary roadmap).The road back to “living economies” will require a global, united effort, through self awareness of our perceptual hang-ups and outdated definitions of both Energy and Economy.
A truly United Front appears to be in the making as revealed in the presentations on links below in this blog post. The links and the people behind the presentations would find the ‘combo’ effect far more powerful than the stand alone.I find it strange indeed in the last 35 years, that I have only seen the question of global, systemic PRIORITIES raised once, this on the Wiser.org blog, by Dan Bassill, back in 2009, also to no avail.
Dan Bassill on 10 Apr 2009 at 6:51 AM: “ I think you’ve developed a valuable resource. However, because it is so comprehensive, I wonder how effective it is in mobilizing people to connect around any particular issue. I see that there are hundreds of groups, but many with just a few people. Unless these groups grow, or find ways to connect with others focusing on similar issues, they won’t have the power that is possible with so many like minded organizations meeting on the same web platform.”The following links present an excellent synopsis of the issues and solutions that we all must address. The “need to know”, the “right to know” remains the most basic, fundamental right of FREEDOM and SURVIVAL.
A United Front would consolidate the questions and solutions raised in the following presentations together towards the creation of a feasible, workable, manageable AND Unlimited, Prosperous, exciting future for all:
