Warning: if commentary below offends you - look at some of our other content as this piece is only important if you can feel comfy with it- the fact that reconciliation practices are not widely integrated into economics decision-makers recent behaviours scares me as a maths guy. To see what we mean from a socially grounded guy,- refer to harrison owen www.practiceofpeace.com or if need be I am firstname.lastname@example.org
What Keynes General Theory does : explains connections between peace and system design, and warns youth to be vigilant against academic economics gurus whose potentially fatal vanities combined with advising big decision-makers compounds the world's greatest risks. That's why our list of conscious system leaders includes 8 economists or maths guys whose ideas had pro-youth impacts wherever they were used. When you choose local leaders that needs much more cross-cultural future history sense than we claim to have so we have kept to four we believe did more than any peoples had the right to expect from a human being. We have added 2 practice leaders Mother Theresa in healthcare and Montessori in schools - we realise there are many more practitioners to praise but those two have lifetimes we believe all youth ought to know.
What Kaiser Wilhem did was be in the wrong place for carelessness that spun over half a century of wars out of Europe. He wasn't evil like a Hitler or a Stalin but he was situated at a time when many crises of the industrial age had been spinning and he was at the top of the whole house of cards. Ditto George Bush - everyone around in the 21st C today has peacemaking problems to solve that someone less careless than Bush might not have compounded. However if you side with George Bush and believe he had an impossible job then you are concluding that there are systems that are not too big to fail but too big to exist. And this is arguably our great post-industrial problem- today we are the first generation who can scale systems that rival nature's in planetary size. In doing that we run the risk that she will decide the human race is the next dodo. We need a majortiy of worldwide youth to be peacemakers - ie capable of cross-cultural celebration through every community. Interestingly the Lucknow City Montessori schooling system nurtures 50000 youth at any ine time being the only schooling system run by the Gandhi family www.cmseducation.org with major peace prizes. It is a curriculum worth every youth connecting with
what is phony capitalism
what in social or political context are examples of forbidden questions
to take a relatively trivial case of bush's destruction of freedom of speech begin with the dixie chicks case, how do you contrast it with Putin Pussy Riot case
from the point of view of statistics, the end 2000 election race between bush and gore was a dead heat- do you think world would be in a whollt different place if Gore had led USA into 21st C -discuss with someone who holds an opposite view as a person not as a member of either party
