The human failing I would most like to correct is aggression. It may have had survival advantage in caveman days, to get more food, territory or partner with whom to reproduce, but now it threatens to destroy us all.
– Stephen Hawking
The central premise of much of my writing over the years has been that the psychopathic nature of the political establishment has reached a critical mass. Like the nuclear weapons that so represent the state’s war against life, this critical mass threatens the very existence of mankind. The collective madness implicit in every form of political structuring has brought humanity to a breaking point that can no longer be ignored, and from which there is no turning back. The human species has invested too much of its energies into the creation, support, and attachment to, organizational systems which are to be considered ends in themselves. These organizations have amassed sufficient power over their creators as to threaten not only the material and spiritual well-being of human beings, but our species itself. If we are to avoid this fate, we must transcend the violent, destructive thinking that got us to where we find ourselves. In the words of Albert Einstein: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”
