Through this space, in the blog category of “books on sustainable human progress” I start to make knowledge available to you. This is part of the universal academic environment (The STIR Academy) that I am creating as part of the development of Sustainocracy as a new way of co-creating society in a value driven democratic way. In a Sustainocracy co-creative initiatives are taken in which education is always included free of charge, not free of responsibility. Via this means you get knowledge of a new society that you can process yourself. You now have a choice between paradigms. Knowledge helps you to develop awareness on which choice provides you with the best prospects to conduct your life in an exciting and sustainable way. The authors you meet here are also invited by me to take co-responsibility when Sustainocracy extends across the world. This have the same choices as you yet through their publications they show that they are maybe a step closer.
I met this extremely interesting Hungarian intellectual and author, Tóth Gergely, in September 2012 during the three day Euro-SPES encounter on Spirituality and Sustainability in Visegrad (Hungary). In Hungary we find many people with deep understanding on the subject but they publish in the very difficult local Hungarian language. I am very pleased to be able to share this document in English with you. Interesting to note is perhaps that Tóth also makes his work available to you free of charge, just like me and the others in the STIR Academy. We are convinced that knowledge is not just for those who can afford it but part of humankind that should be freely available and used for sustainable human progress.
