Author and Social Commentator Jeremy Rifkin tells us how to build a new civilization based on psychological studies describing a new caring, loving version of human nature. We're not greedy, aggressive and impulsive. We want to belong and share and be creative. We need to build a civilization based on this new scientific research.

Like it or not this is what the studies show. Keep in mind that psychology and sociology weren't evn around when we founded our pandemic democratic-capitalistic culture. Its time to update our civilization to current scientific research.

Ok I was really struggling to embed that video. I gave up and posted a link. Any help on embedding video would be greatly appreciated.

I only watched the animated one - very impressive, I'm going to spread the word to everyone I know.

Basically goes back to the Rastafarian tradition of One Love.

It sounds great but the skeptic in me suggests caution. Some of the greatest crimes are committed through exploiting this human altruism (empathy)

The old saying goes "The road to hell is paved with good intentions"

"A man should always have two reasons for doing anything: a good reason and the real reason" - J.P. Morgan


Womens lib was funded by the Rockefeller's as a way of creating 2 taxpayers in every family, and also so they could indoctrinate children at an earlier age. (see video below)

Could this be the spark in creating a movement where people would accept a "one world government" ?

I don't know, but I tend to err on the side of caution.
