Take a step back for a minute and look at the state humanity is in…

80% of the world’s population live below the poverty line. Homeless people line the streets everywhere you go. One fifth of the world’s largest rainforest, the Amazon, has been cut down to make way for industrial farming, and is continuing to be destroyed. War is rife in the Middle East with over 5 million refugees desperately seeking (or having sought) asylum in other countries. The United States and its allies continue greasing the palms of the oil, coal, and coal seam gas industries, even though the world is crying out for renewable energy solutions to be rolled out globally. After one of the biggest nuclear disasters in history in Fukushima, Japan, that continues to put the rest of the world at risk of nuclear contamination, Japan’s Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, decided that instead of pulling out of nuclear energy production, he would continue to invest in the nuclear energy program. The education system still continues to churn out obedient workers and stifle the creative instincts of our children. Our so-called ‘world leaders’ insist they’re bent on change, yet continue to value the needs of the economy over the needs of humanity and the needs of our dying planet.

A New Kind of Revolution

Something has to change. We can’t sit back and watch the world burn. We need a revolution…

I’m not talking about any kind of revolution we’ve had before. History has recorded hundreds of revolutions and almost all of them have ended in violence and bloodshed. The time for violent revolution is over. We don’t want any kind of destructive revolution, nor do we need one. We need a constructive revolution — a revolution of pure creation.

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” – Buckminster Fuller

Imagine a world where we create our way out of the mess we’re in. Instead of overthrowing governments, we build new models, new networks, new systems, that leave the old ways to rot and decay.
