The world is changing and will inevitably continue to change, but for the better or for the worse?
To look at that question and to see ways we can assure we have the ability to move it in the direction that is most safe and helpful for all, there will be videos and links to articles which will be added to as time goes on.
Please watch these videos and check out the info at the links.
Please become as aware as possible, informed as possible and as open minded as possible.
Please do not make assumptions.
Please care enough to do those and other Peaceful things.
Please check back from time to time as I will add to this post as I find things worth sharing and will add new stuff to the bottom of the post.
Please Contact me with anything you feel should be added.
First off is a short video that says a lot in a less than 6 minutes…
Here are some links with much info, then more videos…
Wind, solar, geothermal, alternatives to oil based plastic, dangers of fossil fuels, benefits (including for the fossil fuel workers) of clean alternatives, how to move from the big banks to local Credit Unions and more…
Candidates, parties and groups working on changing things for the better…
How our lifestyle and diets affect our planet and what we can do to have less negative impact…
How you can help make this a world beyond war…
Ways that are successful in opposing oppression, knowing your rights, etc…
Some important words by Native Peoples and others…
Here’s a VERY good video of discussion worth watching a few times with David Attenborough, Richard Dawkins, Richard Leakey and Jane Goodall on the shape the planet is in and how we (including filmmakers and documentary makers) can address the issues and create positive change…
This next video is very inspiring. Anyone who wants world Peace, all teachers and anyone who wants to help children be caring, thinking individuals living to their potential and have a better world should see this…
The success of nonviolent civil resistance:
Between 1900-2006, campaigns of nonviolent civil resistance were twice as successful as violent campaigns. Erica will talk about her research on the impressive historical record of civil resistance in the 20th century and discuss the promise of unarmed struggle in the 21st century. She will focus on the so-called “3.5% rule”—the notion that no government can withstand a challenge of 3.5% of its population without either accommodating the movement or (in extreme cases) disintegrating. In addition to explaining why nonviolent resistance has been so effective, she will also share some lessons learned about why it sometimes fails.
Empathy is a Verb
Educational psychologist and author, Michele Borba, shares her decade-long journey to discover how to optimize human potential. Surprisingly, it was children from Canada to Rwanda who offered the three best ideas to cultivate empathy. The best news: if applying those simple strategies together we can revolutionize society and build the best investment for our future: human capital.
Vanessa Inn demonstrates how to overcome fear, uniting “heart & spine” to achieve a state of fearless empathy.
If we are to have a better world more businesses have to have at least some of the vision and willingness to not have profit as their only driving force. Interesting Elon Musk interview here…
Just those above can keep you busy for a good while, much needs to be gone through and read or watched more than once to let it all soak in but with that said I will add more as I find what I feel fits. Again, I ask you to contact me with what you want to add and I ask you to stay open, find ways to understand things yourself and find ways to get others to be able to see and understand. Think and dream up new ways to help. Trust yourself. You can change the world.
We’re all in this together.
