If you are concerned about the state of the nation and the future of your kids, then read this.
- First we present evidence for the decline of life as we know it.
- Then we explain why it has not been possible until now to solve these problems with our present way of thinking.
- Then we offer a clear path to liberation from the feelings of powerlessness and apathy that have been preventing us from turning things around.
What sets this path apart from any other, is that it is based upon the ability to bring together the collective wisdom of many people through the application of one of the greatest gifts that God wants to give each of us. The gift of synergy.
The Case for Decline
This website is written with a concern for your time. You will understand the logic even without visiting every link, in fact, we recommend that it should be read all the way through and then, if you want to know more, then go back and visit the links.
Early in 2007 David M. Walker, the former Comptroller General of the United States Government and CEO of the Government Accountability Office, was featured in a CBS 60 Minutes program in which he predicted that the USA will have to take out massive loans on the “national credit card” to be able to pay for welfare and entitlement programs such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. In the interview Dr. Walker said that even payment of the interest on these loans will burden our children and grandchildren, with ultra high inflation and taxation unless changes were made very soon.
That was six years ago. Today, even after Walker resigned from his position to lend his credentials to a crusade to “awaken” America’s financial leaders to this looming crisis, and despite the millions of dollars that have been poured into this campaign by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, very little has changed. In fact things have gotten much worse.
David Walker is far from alone in understanding the urgent need for fundamental change. Senators interviewed for the program said that in Congress and on Capital Hill, almost everyone agrees with Walker. It is like a dirty little secret that everyone knows about but feel they are unable to do anything about.
Why is it, when so much is at stake, we are unable to act?
As the 2010 documentary The Four Horsemen by Ross Ashcroft makes clear, the problems we face are more than just out of control government financial liabilities. Problems ranging from political and economic corruption to pollution produce unintended consequences like terrorism, political instability, unemployment, global warming, climate change, species extinction, etc.
These issues have been building for decades and they don’t just affect the United States, all countries are likewise continuing along a trajectory towards almost certain decline.
Throughout history there have always been great thinkers such as Socrates, Voltaire, Jefferson, etc who have pointed out that there must be a root-cause, but no-one has understood completely or come up with a solution.
So, like the symptoms of a systemic disease – problems are destined to return, maybe in a slightly different form each time, until the actual root-cause of the disease is diagnosed and an effective treatment started that can permanently eliminate the cause and thus the symptoms.
In our time people like Albert Einstein, Buckminster Fuller, M. Scott Peck, Stephen Covey, have written that the root-cause is our Win-Lose way of thinking, but even they have not been able to understand clearly enough and put forward a course of action to change it.
The solution has been hidden in plain sight but can only be seen with eyeglasses of synergy. Anyone who takes the time to learn about the true nature of synergy will be surprised and inspired and be able to experience an empowered life without fear.
Victor Hugo said “An invasion of armies can be resisted but not an idea whose time has come.” Synergy is more than just an idea, as we will show, it is a powerful motivating gift from God.
If you continue on to About Win-Lose, then on to About Win-Win, then to About Synergy and then to About the Co-op you should gain a foundation to make some important life decisions. Please enjoy!
