…towards a better world
Power to all the world’s peoples -
The ghosts of global past, or global future? Either way, maybe they will come to haunt us if we screw the planet up for future generations.
An unravelling world -
Our home is full of breathtaking beauty, but …
… greed and inequality are causing increasing unrest across the globe …
… even though suspicions abound that it’s at least in part a stageplay …
Shifts in the global climate could wreak havoc on both our landscape and our ability to sustain all the world's flora and fauna …
Destruction of forests by loggers and climate change further fuels that spiral of change.
Increased desertification will put food supplies under pressure.
Fertile land is precious, and we must strive to preserve fragile ecosystems.
Increased famine is a real threat if both temperatures and populations soar, and the massive poverty gap will increase global tensions.
Melting ice caps would cause rising sea levels, with associated risk of flooding.
Melting ice caps will also put indigenous wildlife under threat as their food sources are diminished …
A Solomon Islander -
The beauty of our planet is often spectacular -
In a relatively sterile universe the abundance and diversity of life here is something we should be in awe of, and strive to preserve for future generations …
More and more people are beginning to question conventional wisdoms, including the acceptance that capitalist excess is worth the price that the game-
We need to talk across the reaches of artificial boundaries with open minds, to listen and learn, seeking to differentiate real spiritual wisdom from mind control and hidden agendas.
We can bring about positive change by concerted action but first we need to decide what that action entails -
‘Where’s it leading to?
Freedom at what cost?
People needing more and more
And it’s all getting lost.’
So wrote 1970s folk-
Nowadays, things haven’t changed much. After an era of disillusionment and cynicism the younger generations have rediscovered some of the hope and much of the angst that drove their parents and grandparents. With modern technology we have the means of reaching and embracing the whole world -
The stakes are probably higher than ever, but so too are the opportunities. What will we choose: to spread the words of knowledge and enlightenment across the deepest corners of the world? Or to disseminate fear, confusion, and disinformation, just as we’ve done through the ages, with the occasional faltering step towards progress?
Perhaps humanity simply hasn’t evolved enough: we have the science, but deep down in our psyche we’re little more than savages in suits. We must strive to overcome the inertias of the past, much of it devised by the political, religious and, more recently, corporate power bases as a means to control the masses for their own selfish gain. It must in part be a spiritual journey; but one that is unshackled from the ancient superstitions.
Global Fightback is another voice in the growing clamour for change -
Fighting back doesn’t have to involve violence -
In addition to being one more voice for change we also set our remit much wider: to make this website over time a comprehensive reference portal for all global activists, and a place to meet and share ideas and resources. It belongs, therefore, to every one of you who cares, and with this in mind we invite you to contact us with your suggestions and contributions. It’s a long and uncertain journey ahead, one that will not be completed in our lifetime. Along the way maybe those of us who share the vision of a better (fairer) world for all can make a small but significant contribution to that cause, and freely exchange some enlightenment and joy along the way.
Remember, it’s your portal
so contact us with suggestions.
Facebook zeroed our ‘Likes’ counter when we changed our domain from .com to .org recently.
