An Introduction To The Forums For Guests

Post by Globalfightback »


Hello Guest. Welcome to Build A Better Earth forums, a non-corporate, advert-free alternative to Facebook, Twitter etc.

This is the only section you can see because you either haven't yet registered for the forums or you haven't logged in. Additionally, you will only see the default Board style until you're logged in (see the separate topic for log-in and password issues). Registration for these forums is completely free of charge - read on for further details.

Once you have registered and logged in you will see all the other forums, where you can view the posts and contribute your own. These include the following: Environmental Issues, Science And Technology, Spirituality And Philosophy, Political And Economic Issues, Conspiracy Theories, Prepper Bunker, and Chillout Lounge. If you don't like the default visual appearance of the Board you will also have additional styles to choose from in your User Control Panel, which is accessed via the dropdown menu at the top of the screen next to your chosen username.

These forums have been created for those who prefer serious debate to white noise and likes counts, as a non-corporate and advert-free resource to facilitate progressive debate on a diverse range of subject matter, and are provided as an interactive element to compliment the additional material on the website at There is no charge made to join, simply create a username and password, and supply a (genuine) email address, and you can participate once you've clicked on an activation link that will be sent to you in an email. If you are concerned about privacy, it's easy to create a new email address for free from a variety of providers (Outlook, Gmail etc.), and you could choose one that is used solely for this Board and therefore protects your identity in the wider world. As an additional safeguard, most of the forums on the Board are only visible to registered members. Once you've registered, check your email Inbox, and if you don't see the activation mail check it hasn't gone into your Spam/Junk folder. If you have any issues, please contact Admin using the Contact link at the bottom of this page. If you wish, you can enlarge the font on the Board for easier reading using the magnification tool in your browser. It's essential that you provide a genuine email address when you register in order to receive the activation email. This procedure is in place as an anti-spam measure.

If you're serious about debating global change, why would you want to waste your energies on corporate social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, investing your valuable time engaging in debate only for it to become largely invisible after mere days, or even hours, as it disappears down the timeline and into obscurity to be replaced by the next ephemeral fad? Those who weren't logged in at the time probably never even saw your post anyway. The very structure of these sites is best suited to mere superficial chit-chat and, furthermore, they are controlled by corporate giants that have lost what touch they ever had with people as humans rather than commodities.

Do not be put off by the website name: a global fightback, as expounded therein, is not about blood on the streets. It is, however, about the peoples of the world rediscovering their voice, and their power, both as individuals and as a collective whole. It is also an expression of the need to help the planet itself fight back against its mistreatment at the hands of humanity. How do we go about all this? That's the main point of the forums and website: to debate the best way forward and how to implement it. To learn more, maybe you should get involved.

As a Guest, you can read a little about the inspiration behind the creation of this Forum Board below. If you wish to provide feedback or ask a question you can do this via the Message Board that is also available in this Guest section. This is the only section in which non-registered Guests can post. Please note that the Captcha field that appears on the Post Reply screen does not appear for registered users and, in addition, registered users have further permissions regarding the content they can post (including images, editing, and the ability to create new topics, polls etc).

This entire Guest Section of the Board disappears once you log in. This is to reduce clutter on the Board index page when you arrive there.


An Introduction To The Build A Better Earth Forums

We live in uncertain and very worrying times. The surreal fiasco that recently played out in the US over the legitimacy of the Presidential election is a stark indication of how people will stop at nothing to attain and hold on to power that can then be abused for personal gain at the expense of the greater good: where ethics becomes just an impotent word in the vocabulary of a 'loser', and hypocrisy is a byword for success. The right-wing factions of Western democracies are now using all manner of smoke, mirrors and doublespeak to obscure the truth from the masses, and thus control and suppress them: as a result, we are sleepwalking into a virtual reality where control becomes omnipresent and pockets of resistance become unfocussed. Most recently we have the unbelievable scenes taking place in Ukraine that are the result of cynical brinkmanship between so-called East and West, and which threaten, unless both sides come to their senses, to embroil us in a third global war. Meanwhile, the Earth sickens. We stand at a crossroads, where we a face not only a battle for democracy, but one for the very soul of humanity, and the welfare of our planet too. The old ways have failed us time and again, and one of the major objectives of these forums is to collectively discuss new solutions that work for all of us.

I encourage people from every corner of the planet to engage with each other and discuss ideas for helping to make our precious and beautiful world a better place for all - not just the privileged few. The vision that inspired the creation of the website was to build a global portal for people from all corners of the world to meet, engage, and share ideas and information, and it is hoped that these new forums will play a key part in this. The entire site features SSL secure encryption for passwords etc.

I believe that forum boards are preferable to social media sites for serious debate, since debate is archived in a better structured and more readily accessible format - posts can be retrieved and added to even years down the line. Most social media sites are full of simplistic and sensationalist content that panders to a herd mindset; in contrast, these forums are intended to encourage serious and objective debate, whilst still providing space to celebrate the lighter side of life and the essence of all that is good in humanity, and are, furthermore, free from corporate control and interference. The forums compliment the website being developed at

If you are passionate about helping to repair the damage that humans have done to the planet, please engage with others, here and elsewhere, and let's help to contribute towards what will be a very lengthy process that will no doubt require some radical change in both thought and practice.
