‘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 worthwhile contribution to that cause, and freely exchange some enlightenment and joy as we travel.
