The global Visioneers network is preparing a great launch and clustered platform for values driven actions.

Save the date: Sunday October 9, 2022 at 11 am PDT = 20.00 CET online and offline (Vancouver) event.

Humanity’s Golden Peace
An Entry to the Age of Global Consciousness 
A Catalyst 

What is/are “the Visioneers”? In 1992 Dr Desmond Berghofer (Vancouver, Canada) published a book on his views of human development. Ever since he has been living his views together with his wife Dr. Geraldine Schwartz. Five years ago they started to extend Visioneers Awards to people who were recommended to them for their humanitarian work accross the world. So far over 300 awards have been extended by them forming a worldwide network of great people that have been making a difference. I myself was surprised and honored to be included in this network some time ago and also become part of their round table of about 30 Visioneers. I suddenly found myself surrounded with the greatest authors, TV personalities, musicians, peace activists, intellectuals, etc.

The event on October 9th? After all these many years of preparations, gathering wonderful people, extending awards to them, it is time to engage the whole world. Read about the plans here in the latest bulletin. The event will contain three parts:

  1. 1. The celebration and official designation of Visioneers Awards
  2. 2. Humanity’s Golden Peace, described in visuals, stories, music, poetry and songs, sending our message through the Arts, with choirs of many ages and voices and ongoing audience participation.
  3. 3. A mosaic of film clips, of 10 inspirational episodes of wisdom, stories of outstanding achievement and visions of Humanity’s Golden Future. 

It is also the time to initiate the process of clustering Visioneers in Leadership Circles:

Visioneers Leadership Circles to be formed worldwide will be introduced as we wage peace and register our achievements on the Visioneers Wall of Stories, colour-coded to display progress on the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Why it is imperitive to transform institutions into 4 x WIN leadership structures

Humankind has learned to take freely from nature for its own benefit. That is okay if this is done within limits of the reasonable. It is not okay if we take in an unlimited way for our financial interest. This is what happened since the industrial era. The cultural mindset of an economy of growth has canabalized our planetary resources. It has reached a point of parasitic abuse that only has one future: total collapse.

Yet none of the individual institutions can be blamed. Their existence is based on this common practice. If we want to divert the catastrophic perspectives we need to provide the institutions with a means to grow without the material abuse. 4 x WIN is the solution. Instead of translating the unlimited taking from nature into money, we base our economy on the multidimensional value creation for the human being (core values), society and our environment. This is a diverse field of unlimited innovative development and growth in a new financial world where the dependence on material resources can be minimized, made circular and even regenerative. We become much more reliant on our creativity as a value than our blind consumption.

This also has a very important effect on the government and semi government structures. These grew into costly remedial institutions, dealing with the consequences of this destructive 1 x WIN attitude. Once 4 x WIN is adopted, governance becomes a valuable partner in connecting the regional 4 x WIN ecosystem for optimum local wellness and sustainable development. The cost of government as a facilitating service will reduce significantly while its effectiveness multiplies. A WIN situation for everyone involved.

Our planet will recover regeneratively. Our human species becomes more healthy, productive and resilient while our innovation will assure our wellness. We will all be involved in shared distribution of our values and securities. The step into 4 x WIN is a choice, an evolucionary step. Valueing our benefits such as health or safety, and even our proactive cooperative relationship with our environment, is a new field of financial development that can be compared with the way blockchain and the cryptoworld works. Giving value to trust, identity, authenticity, responsibility, wellness, etc has a much higher and sustainable impact of unlimited financial growth with a much more solid foundation than the material destruction for massively produced and distributed products that noone needs and only feed the pollution and mountains and seas of unproductive waste.

One day in the future 4 x WIN will be the norm for all institutions.

Part 1. Our forced solidarity with the financial system has serious flaws. We need new ethics to counter them.

Our current money dependent society is based on a law abiding solidarity with the financial system. Despite having brought us many benefits it is also the main threat of our self destruction. Humankind is in desperate needs of new generalized ethics to transform the self destructive trajectory into one of sustainable human progress with newly structured shared wellness. Sustainocracy provides these ethics, based on the old evolutionary principles of core human values and share responsibilities. But first let´s look at the flaws of a system that we have been obliged to be part of.

The problem we face is that the ethics of our forced solidarity with the financial system has important flaws that are managed by the same people that force the solidarity on us through their own interpretation of justice.

The problem started about 10.000 years ago when we began to take from nature for free to claim ownership instead of using from nature for our sustainable needs. It became a type of ownership that was not just related to a particular desire to control our wellness. It was also a way to claim self interest over other people who had not made the claim. We gradually institutionalized both the capitalization of what we take from nature for free and the condition of ownership. This created the duality of people who own and those who donot. Those who donot remain having the natural right and need to use the benefits of nature even if this is being taking away from them by those that claim the ownership.

Those who own started to make the naturally provided elements available to others only against favors, nowadays expressed mainly through money.

The institutionalization of ownership also gave rise to defending and protecting this ownership through defensive aggression, systems of law and formalization of heritage. It hence gave power to those who own over those that do not. The conversion of ownership, inclusing the exchange of ownership (trade), into a financial system with protective laws, dependence, structures of control, financial speculation, competition, finance based governance, etc also gave rise to conflicts, abuse of power and corruption, some of it even supported, certainly not challenged, by the systems of law.

Other conflicts were caused by human rights activists that claimed better sharing of the benefits of ownership as well as access to the decision making. This gave rise gradually to a caretaking society that keeps the masses calm enough to not stand up against the ownership hierarchy by providing basic needs. The needs became only accessible through financial means, demanding from the people even more solidarity with the financial system and its services. This includes the interpretation of democratic right that we know today in many countries. This right allows people to participate through elections but does not allow people to vote for the alteration of this system. In many cases it is also nearly impossible to challenge the flaws such as corruption or power abuse.

When we refer to sustainable progress, the tendency of the system is to look at the application of technology and expensive care systems that remediate the negative consequences of this unlimited and destructive economized taking. It does not look at itself as the kernel of all the problems. With a population of 7.5 billion people, the system and its services have overrun all the natural auto generative limits of the Earth resources. Also the impact on the human being as a species has been disastrous from an integral health perspective.

How can we transform such a deeply anchored, but highly obsolete and even disputable system into one that brings back our sustainable human perspectives?

Part 2 will show the way Sustainocracy does this in different regions.
