Water: Soul of the Earth, Mirror of Our Collective Souls

(0) Comments | Posted January 5, 2011 | 3:43 PM

Last week I examined how we might create Infinite Wealth for All, but left for this week the most vital element of life on earth, Water. It is the soul of the Earth, and it is black with the sins of humanity, on the verge of becoming Lucifer's...

In the new year my focus is going to...

Diversity of Voices & Values

(1) Comments | Posted December 21, 2010 | 7:27 AM

Poor No Labels. A million dollars wasted, all because the donors and the recipients are so out of touch with America they simply don't "get" the fact that the two-party tyranny is a "walking dead man," and a diversity of voices & values has emerged across America and...

Personal for Mike Bloomberg

This letter, available as a document online, was written before the No Labels "show," which flopped big time as you now realize. I won't belabor the headlines (no specifics, no coherence, no point) or the fact that...

Ron Paul, in a short general speech before Congress, carried on C-SPAN and now on YouTube, defended the public service nature of the recent Wikileaks revelations, and asked nine questions. I thought to provide those questions here as a...

A World That Works for All

(0) Comments | Posted December 8, 2010 | 12:50 PM

Building on last week's review of Buckminster Fuller's 1928 Ideas & Integrities, this week I want to honor one new book and reinforce that book with mention and links to several others, all of which make the same point in different ways: we have the power to...

No Labels "Non-Party" Equals "Four More Years" for Wall Street, Goldman Sachs, Grand Theft USA

(6) Comments | Posted November 30, 2010 | 6:28 PM

From the shadows, a "non-party" has emerged called the No Labels, claiming to be comprised of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. The other 63 parties in the USA are not mentioned.

6 Star and Beyond-the Essence of Fuller, the Future of Humanity

I did not truly begin to understand the breadth and depth of Buckminster Fuller's thinking until I read this book as it deserves to be read, with full attention and detailed notes. This is one of those books that...

Our Choice: Changing the Game

(0) Comments | Posted November 15, 2010 | 2:13 PM

Obama has a choice. We outlined that choice in the last post, aptly entitled "Obama's Choice." We've also speculated elsewhere that Obama might leave the Democratic Party and run as an Independent in 2012.

Today, with permission, I present Tom Atlee's newest vision, "Are We Ready...

I want to put this somewhat intellectual blog posting into perspective. Below is a quote from Matt Taibbi's new book, Griftopia-Bubble Machines, Vampire Squids, and the Long Con That Is Breaking America (Spiegel & Grau, 2 November 2010). Click on the title of the book to read my...

8 Populations, 4 Methods

Minister-Mentor Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore has said that demography, not democracy, is the defining element of the future, and I agree with him. This is important for two reasons:

First, if the projected population explosions occur in Brazil, China, India, Indonesia and in Africa, then all ten of the...

I became the #1 Amazon reviewer for non-fiction [or 32/216 overall including movies, software, and fiction) quite by accident, loading 300 reviews from my first two books' annotated bibliographies, and then getting "hooked" on reviewing as well as reading my normal intake of roughly 100-200 books a year....
