The fight-or-flight reaction to threats is far too simplistic to effectively overcome many of the threats we are confronted with today. In fact, not only is this hardwired response often not effective, but it can be counterproductive to our survival.
The greatest crime is blocking our children from seeing what a wonderful world in which we humans live and how God's greatest gift was giving us the abilities to discover this world, however strange and terrifying it may seem at times.
We are, without doubt, at a tipping point in our human evolution. The underlying theme seems to be "change," as in self-transformation, or get sucked in by the "quantum vacuum" of our dysfunctional system.
I believe we're living through a period of accelerated human evolution, otherwise known as an "evolutionary leap," and that this one is not only marked by but defined by a shift in human consciousness.
