Matt Damon reading Howard Zinn about a Declaration of Interdependence

See on Scoop.itGlobal Consensus

Matt Damon isn’t asking you to start a revolution, but when you hear this, you might anyway.

 

Reading Howard Zinn:

 

“We need a kind of declaration of interdependence among all peoples of the world who are striving for the same thing.”

Daniel LaLiberte‘s insight:

As imddawg comments: "If I may throw in my 2 cents. We ALL need to become ONE. Not Rep. or Dem., nor Tea Party or Occupy. Not Christian or Muslim, nor American or European. These distinctions are our chains, they bind us to the floor. We need to become humans for humanity. Then and only then can we become a significant force, equal to the task. ONE."

 

Even though we should always strive to become ONE, we must also support fair expression and consideration of all points of view.

Earth Democracy

See on Scoop.itGlobal Consensus

Vandana Shiva explains the concept of a deeper democracy called earth democracy.

 

“It is a democracy that is related to the earth, in the sense that we are first and foremost citizens of the earth, of the planet.  The second reason I call it “earth democracy” is it’s practiced close to the earth.  It’s practiced best where you live, every day.”

A Call For A Crowdsourced Worldwide Wave Of Action ~ #www

See on Scoop.itGlobal Consensus

Let’s pick a three-month span, perhaps throughout this coming spring, and unite our collective actions into an unprecedented Worldwide Wave that cannot be ignored by anyone.

The decentralized movement toward freedom is raging across the world. It cannot be stopped. The tipping point is near. Despite the lack of coverage in the mainstream media, actions are springing up on an increasing basis. A wave of transformation is rising. The zeitgeist is shifting in our direction.

 

The last time we all rallied together in a loosely knit collective fashion, the Occupy movement was born and the 99% meme brought the corruption of our political and economic system, along with the grotesque inequality of wealth, into mass consciousness in a profound and lasting way. It was the opening act, the awakening wave.

“‘Connected’ is a film made by Paul and Kate Maple, a UK based family who have made it their lives for the last 4 years. Worried about the future and the seemingly insurmountable mountain of problems in the world, Paul and Kate decided to ditch their busy lives and start working out if there was any way they could help create positive social change…” www.globaldocumentary.org

Daniel LaLiberte‘s insight:

"Because humanity shares one planet."
