The old earth is dying - dead in places - so why hold onto it for dear life as if it's the model for progress worthy of our respect and time? Why continue to pump life into systems and leaders that have long surpassed their use-by date in terms of genuine and equitable growth? We must stop being armchair critics parroting and passing on often mischievous words from the mouths of others.
I'll continue to work for and encourage others to put in the effort to create NEW systems keeping what's good of the old. We must intentionally co-create New Earth paradigms - new governments, childrearing practices, education, health and well-being, economies, communities, trade, peacekeeping, creative centres, care for the disadvantaged, housing, infrastructure, life-affirming employment etcetera.
Of course, it takes new thinking and effort, but surely that's why we're here at this pivotal point in Earth's history.
