Leaders and Leadership in 2013 – Final Part

Before getting into the content of this final blog in the Leaders and Leadership 2013 blog series, I’d like to set out what I am trying to accomplish with this series and the other blogs I’ve written and will continue to write. What I’m trying to do is share my thoughts about the state of humanity today and where we urgently need to go from here to avoid an impending civilizational collapse in our lifetimes and move towards a peaceful and sustainable world and future, after over 25 years of related ‘world futures’ research, study and writings. In doing so I am...

Leaders and Leadership in 2013 – Part 4

This Monday April 22nd was Earth Day 2013.  The modern onslaught on Mother Nature to serve the exponential needs of humanity continues full force despite what we now know or should know. So much of nature, which is of course our children’s shared heritage, has been used up or destroyed over only the past hundred years. Click here for a recent review of what humanity can expect in the coming decades from former Chief Scientific Officer to the UK Government, Sir John Beddington. I had planned that this blog would be the final one in the series but had written so much that there will...

Leaders and Leadership in 2013 – Part 3

This will now be a 4-part blog series as I find a further blog of analysis and diagnosis of our current scenario is needed prior to the final part of the series which will be prognosis and suggested steps to shift our world and future from our current self-destructive path. I begin this blog, the third one in this Leaders and Leadership series, with what I said to close the last blog:  “It is accordingly clear that many aspects of what we believe has been our ‘material progress’ over our history are now proving to be ultimately illusory. Our belief in our basic freedoms are also...

Leaders and Leadership in 2013 – Part 2

In Part 1 of this 3-part blog series I said that this week’s Part 2 will be a more detailed overview of our current scenario, highlighting what I believe to be the major negative and positive trends now at play, and will present a ‘diagnosis’ of what some call the ‘global problematique’  which is a current global disease for humanity as a whole. Accordingly this blog will be my view on the ‘state of humanity’ today from the broadest perspective. While of course the state of humanity today can inform us to a great extent on what is to be expected for...

Leaders and Leadership in 2013 – Part 1

This will be a 3-part blog as the theme of Leadership in and for our world today is such a critical one of course. And it is perhaps appropriate that this first part is being written and sent out on April 1st which is of course April Fool’s Day.  I’m afraid the biggest joke is on us where “us” means the world’s people. The alternative title I’ve given this blog series is: “All the right words. All the wrong actions. What’s wrong with this picture?” The attached image is of the G20 Summit in Toronto in June 2010.  These men all look very...
