This group will focus on the writings of David Korten and Yes! magazine, devoted to raise awareness of the necessity and possibility of turning from Empire based thinking to Earth community orientation. I would like to see members studying David's works, and the magazine, in order to have structured, meaningful discussions.
We will analyze and discuss the stories we are told and learn to recognize the lies embedded in these. We will also need to develop a new story that will inspire us to cooperate and build community instead of divide us.
We have a choice!
We have the power!
We are the ones we have been waiting for!
Economy and society are falling apart. Now is the time for fundamental change.

Erica, are you having trouble viewing Youtube videos? I had it with Chrome, but the latest updates seem to have solved the issues with Flash with Chrome.
Found this book and film that may be of interest to other group members:
You can read the book free online from the website. So far, it looks like it mirrors most of what we've been discussing here.
NOTE from Martin Euser: my Bitdefender AV blocked this site (above link), stating that the site contains malware!
To be clear: I have RSS fed pages, not discussions. These can be followed separately in my group on Temple Illuminatus.
Things have just started there and I hope will people there will add to this discussion. The more people involved the better.
Above you can find an RSS feed of the starting pages of my group on Temple Illuminatus. Since it can only show 5 items, I guess I will have to manually post some material to two sites now. Anyway, the Depiction of the problem shows the point on the consequences of peak cheap oil. Then follow some postings on permaculture: ethics and principles. I will put more on this later.
One picture says more than a thousand words. How I love those cartoons..
I absolutely love that Reuben Blades quote! Thanks for sharing that stuff Erica. And Bill Hicks is awesome
@Jon: the video is about the legislation that has been passed on Corporate Personhood. Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission court case.
Evidently, corporations can donate large sums of money, anonymously, to politicians in the election process. Talking about collusion..
"Who does the brainwashing?"
Your parents did (unknowingly), your teachers did, the media did and do, and finally, you yourself did. Our culture does through meme transmission. This is an important point to understand. Adbusters culture jammers people use these mechanisms to make us aware of the programming that's going on. They sure have my sympathy. We need to wake up from our cultural trance or suffer the dire consequences: mass famine, collapse of everything we hold dear, resource wars, and all that follows from that.
You need to be a member of New economy to add comments!
