Now is the time ...

What time is it?

  • question: Where are we in the flow of history?
  • answer: This is the change point.  It's as big as our move from wanderers into agriculture and cities. This is the move from an era of empires to the global era where we're all connected.
  • basis: History, future studies, anthropology, archeology, global modeling, global trend analysis.
  • strategy: Look again.  Wrestle with a whole-world context, and find the ethical points for involvement.
To see the world in terms of yourself and your norms is as sadly uninformed as Columbus was about 'Indians'.

Now our choices touch the world.  Every day, we choose.

What legacy shall we leave our children?  Money?  Land?  Or a good conscience and an ethical worldview.
