John Perkins: Take Action, Don’t Let Yourself Off The Hook

Tremendous article by John Perkins inspiring every single one of us to get informed, become aware, and take action, originally posted at CSRWire, The Corporate Social Responsibility Wire, and on his website.

Innovation Takes All of Us

From the start of the article:

Our history and our experience should teach us that what we’ve been doing isn’t working. When it’s clear that the status quo, the normal, the “way it’s always been,” isn’t good for the planet or we humans who live on her, we must look for new ways to thrive. If we value the world that we will give to our children and grandchildren, then we must innovate not only in areas such as energy and fuel efficiency but also in our perspective, our mindsets, and our consciousness. This isn’t optional or just for those who “have time;” changing the system of our world is an urgent responsibility for all of us regardless of political affiliation, belief system, or socio-economic background.”

From later in the article:

“The US government, some NGOs, USAID, and other organizations that say they are doing “good” work around the world are often in bed with the corporatocracy, lining their own pockets or increasing their prestige and power, and exploiting the vulnerable. Their work, profiting off war and violence to people and nature, results in more death, more poverty, and more despair.

Take action; don’t let yourself off the hook. You have more power than you may realize and more power than the Corporatocracy wants you to believe you have. Let’s use our power together to innovate, to shift the message and let the world know that it’s not ok to pursue profits over people; let’s tell the corporatocracy and government that our Living Earth is more important than the bottom line. Share the truth and encourage those around you to act with you.

We can move from the Death Economy to the Life Economy by not only changing our actions and plans, but first and most importantly changing our mindset, our worldview, our dream.  We have entered the Consciousness Revolution! Let’s make history – big time!  It will take each one of us and all of us, together.” Please read the whole article here.

John Perkins is an economist turned truthteller who used to consult for the World Bank, IMF, UN, etc. From his website: “John’s Confessions of an Economic Hit Man (70 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list) is a startling exposé of international corruption. His The Secret History of the American Empire, also a New York Times bestseller, details the clandestine operations that created the world’s first truly global empire. His Hoodwinked is a blueprint for a new form of global economics. The solutions are not “return to normal” ones. Instead, John challenges us to soar to new heights, away from predatory capitalism and into an era more transformative than the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions.”

For a really clear explanation from John Perkins spelling out how predatory capitalism and the Corporatocracy has been destroying the world and all its nations, see this 3-minute video:

Lada Ray, Futurist Trendcast: The Energy is Shifting! Together, We Have Averted the Worst Outcome!

Dear FuturisTrendcast readers, fans, fellow Earth Shifters, truthtellers, wayshowers, bloggers, alternative media talk show hosts, as well as all wonderful friends!

The global energy is slowly shifting. It’s getting a little quieter and a little more reasonable. This is not to say that we can relax, turn off our computers and go on permanent vacation. But it is a major, major achievement, nevertheless.

I can tell you with absolute certainty that together, we have averted the worst outcome! The absolute worst outcome would have been a global war – the last war for this human civilization. Should the plans of some, who used Ukraine to generate the conflict of unheard of proportions succeed, there would have been no one and nothing left to talk about.

The Earthly clock would be reset and this experiment, together with all of us, would have been shut town. This is speaking in the words…
