2532. Truth and care.
We understand we need to be told the truth of how issues are connected
And how better government could work these issues.
Even small issues can be important.
We need a better picture of where we are and how we got here.
Our key approaches are
Scenarios of plausible future if we act, or don't.
Seeing the feedback loops in the systems of interconnected problems
Issue maps of those systems and the scenarios.
And we invite people as citizens to join with us in taking this approach to more people in our communities and institutions.
We know we face difficult times This will be hard. We need to help each other with love and care. We need to use technology and democracy, economy health and education along with a willingness, even curiosity, in re redesigning our systems of governance, balancing local and global. We need more understanding of the way our heat/ mind works and how politics keeps unfolding.
"We are at the very beginning of time for the human race. It is not unreasonable that we grapple with problems. But there are tens of thousands of years in the future. Our responsibility is to do what we can, learn what we can, improve the solutions, and pass them on." — Richard Feynman
