I have defended your words before, but this is just plain silly, R. The healthy immune system kills cancer cells, just like it kills viruses and other threats. Violence plays a role as last resort. Being dogmatic about non-violence is just as unwise as dogmatism in other areas. It would be nice, for a change, to hear less exhortation and more self-disclosure. I think that is a partial truth only. It equally needs each of us to live differently. Jason R. Seeking power is a two edged sword, be careful what you wish for.
But if you think that is enough, then you are part of the problem.

That is exactly where the frontier lies. This, we need to figure out, and do.
Thank you for putting it so well! Pardon me, but when was being awake enough to get something done? Waking is but the first step. The next is to embody our new understanding. One does not need to run off to a cabin to do that, nah? That is part of the dark magic of creating a prison without walls and bars.
Unfortunately, none of the movements you extol did anything to change this civilization. They improved things for the inmates. Go to the root, friend! Hello Vera, good to hear from you. Did you read the previous post on this thread which pointed out that we americans tend to want the whole thing right now, and it better be perfect! Sound familiar?
The truth is as far as I can see nobody has the answer to the problems of civilization all wrapped up. So if you have that kind of comprehensive plan, please let me know what it is? Why do so many of us seem to be groping around in the dark on this one? Well, this is a really, really BIG problem.
So try to be patient with some of us Vera, we may just be too slow witted to grok the obvious that others grasp so easily. Hey, Mike K, merry meet again. Bring it on! Maybe there are other possible civs that are not toxic? Slow witted yer not.
Heck, if bats can do it, and dolphins can do it, why not humans? Radical cooperation is possible. The fundamental question, challenge, initiation, koan posed to humankind from the beginning is: love or perish. There really is no substitute for solving this problem. Develop a consciousness centered in mutual love and sharing or end by destroying yourselves. Unless you build your life and your world on that basis, you build it in vain.
The failures and short comings of religions are well known. There are well known paths and methods for engendering this inner change. If for whatever reasons folks choose to ignore this essential undertaking, then the inevitable karmic results will result. The world we see around us now shows forth those tragic results. So, there is an answer to our seemingly impossible world dilemmas. All that is lacking is enough people awakening to this fundamental need for dedication to and practice of love and wisdom.
No one can be forced to take this path; it is by nature non- coercive. There really is no substitute for this answer. The whole history of humankind clearly demonstrates the validity of this approach.

We disregard it at our peril. Anything that helps bring this truth to the consciousness of people is useful.

Anything that denies or ignores it is harmful. We are faced with a fateful choice: love or perish. We are a world of followers. Capitalism is not adult behavior, but no leader will say that in the western world. A world without a recovering monetary system, without energy for heating water, without petroleum for roofing, without daily meat or seafood, without cars, without newspapers, without the internet….

None of it. We need a new kind of leadership. I want you all to take office, make a party, make a march in the streets. YOU folks are the folks with the megaphone. DO something. Thanks for sharing Ira. I have watched with dismay as the Canadian government has lurched to the fascist right. It is good to hear that there is active resistance to all that. Does it appear to you that we could move toward sustainability in a much more sensible way if we stopped willfully ignoring extant science of human population dynamics; stopped consciously refusing to communicate openly about peer-reviewed evidence of the human overpopulation of Earth?
How on Earth do we reasonably address and overcome the human-driven global challenges looming before the human community if top rank scientists with appropriate expertise reject their responsibilities to acknowledge and deny their duties to examine published evidence and report findings? Professor Emeritus Gary L. Peters and Professor Emeritus Albert A.
Bartlett have chosen a different, seldom taken path, one that is morally courageous, because they have broken the silence by speaking out so loudly and clearly while many too many of their outstanding, similarly situated colleagues have remained electively mute. Maybe its time to face that reality. Without it we are half as large And the world Is twice as large. My small Place grows immense as I walk Upon it without hope.
We are not bound to win but we are bound to be true; we are not bound to succeed but we are bound to live up to the light we possess. Obama, quoting former President Abraham Lincoln. Truth is not only violated by falsehood; it may be equally outraged by silence. Speak out as if you were a million voices. It is silence that kills the world. Catherine of Siena, It calls to mind all the work George Lakoff and others have done on the dynamics of persuasion.
It turns out that presenting people with the facts about a subject, no matter how obvious they may be, is not an effective way to influence their minds to embrace a new way of thinking and acting.
