In Search of Islands of Sanity

This is testable if you believe that policy is best set based on what’s good for the system and its people, as a whole. It is also mortally threatening if you believe the system is primarily intended to serve those who control its most valued resources and structures (e.g. money, power, rewards, promotions, security, etc.).

Just as the “Manhattan Project” used Einstein’s formula to invent the atomic bomb, we need to invent ways of accelerating Human Mutuality before transactional, hierarchical, oligarchic or bureaucratic forces suppress or eliminate the human species, environmentally, socially, spiritually, and economically.


THE LONDON BLITZ. In 1940, Adolf Hitler ordered the German Air Force, the Luftwaffe, to bomb London and other British cities into submission. For fifty-seven nights, the city was bombarded; buildings were shattered, homes destroyed, men, women and children killed. Civilian morale: With the inspiration of Sir Winston Churchill the people of London refused to crack, refused to give in. His June 4th, 1940 speech was a rallying cry and clarion call for heroic, noble action and a proud acknowledgement of what had been achieved in the aerial Battle of Britain. It also transformed the city and country from a defensive mode to one of commitment to a great future:

We shall go on to the end.
we shall fight in France,
we shall fight on the seas and oceans,
we shall fight with growing confidence and growing
strength in the air,
we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be,
we shall fight on the beaches,
we shall fight on the landing grounds,
we shall fight in the fields and in the streets,
we shall fight in the hills.
We shall never surrender.

This was Britain’s finest hour.
