What will we leave our children?
The daily headlines from around the world indicate we are at a major crossroads. The sweet hope of freedom, world peace, and unity seem like nothing more then hot air. If this is progress, we seem to need a new perspective.

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

- 100 million deaths could be prevented every year for the price of ten Stealth bombers, or what the world spends on its military in two days.
A Simple Solution
A good first step is to re-establish our human connections to nature and each other. No politician, legislation, military, or zillions of fictitious money can bring a solution. The current economy based structure makes no account of the natural world – nor does it fulfill our inherent human needs.
Provide the Basics – Food, Water, Shelter, and most importantly – strong social relationships through community cooperation – and all else will follow.
