A Primer for the Future of Civilization
Every major breakthrough in the history of mankind was marked by a profound shift in the way people viewed the world and how they viewed themselves.
Part of this shifting resulted from new information and knowledge which, until that time, was not known or understood.
Before the great astronomer and scientist Nicolaus Copernicus, (1473-1543) allowed his revolutionary heliocentric theory to be published, most of the world’s population still believed that the earth was at the center of the Universe and flat!
With Copernicus’ new knowledge spreading out into the world, it caused a dramatic shift in how everyone perceived the world around them leading to monumental implications for what the future may bring.
From that point onward people saw the world, their entire universe, in a completely different way. In so doing it fundamentally changed the way each person viewed his/her life and brought into the light new questions to be considered and studied.
So the prevailing view of the universe, the geo-centric theory or earth centered model, had to be dismissed in order to make room for the new theory.
Many resisted this change for reasons ranging from fear to having a purposeful agenda in keeping the old ways alive.
Keeping new knowledge hidden and controlled is an established means to maintain power and control over others as the new knowledge can remove the need for the old ways of societal organization.
Such is the case with Capitalism.
New knowledge and information has made the time right to let capitalism go the way of the geo-centric theory.
We must now create a civilization that acknowledges all the essential, life enhancing values derived from capitalism while evolving into a new color world where the old makes way for the new while greatly improving the conditions for human life on this planet we call Earth.
So, what NEW knowledge has arrived to warrant such a dramatic shift right now you may ask?
Simply speaking, it’s the full realization of the true value and potential of the faculty we call consciousness…the down home limitless value of EACH conscious individual existing on this planet!
That means you, me, and everyone else living today are, in fact, the supreme and highest value in existence.
This means there are no people BETTER THAN, or more inherently valuable than, any other people!
This fact is crucial to understand and the full implications embraced and reflected in our civilizations and laws so every human being is able to flourish and reach the pinnacle of their potential.
We must acknowledge the supreme value of individual human consciousness and establish laws protecting certain fundamental rights of THE INDIVIDUAL which flow from this recognition.
The most fundamental of these rights is for all individuals to be free from the “initiation of force or fraud, by anyone, and for any reason”…no exceptions!
We also MUST abolish those laws that violate these fundamental rights.
And when we do these things we will have moved beyond capitalism and into a NeoThink® society!
Anchored securely in our new knowledge and full recognition of the supreme value in existence, individual human consciousness, we will then be poised for the greatest leap forward in all human history.
The final evolution into NeoThink®
Next, who will try and stand in the way of this evolution and why.
