Conversation As If Our Lives Depended On It

The Conversation: An Introduction

We need a new vision. As self-interest prevails, for our best chance to handle all threats from nature and from ourselves we need a shift of worldview to where we relate to one another cooperatively. This is a call to people who have a passion for the greater good to engage in a dialogue about what to do.

I’ll begin by asking if there’s some idea you have that, if you were the president, or even the good-hearted emperor, you would implement. Mine would be to get everyone talking about the need for a new worldview.
Now, we talk about things that need our attention: global warming, corporate greed, prison reform, on and on. But I believe that how to change our thinking — how to go from self-interest to mutual concern – should come first.
Until we get this dialogue happening, we’ll be talking about the trees and ignoring the forest. Would you agree, or would you have some other idea about where our focus should be?
