Wisdom from Dr. Ervin Laszlo

You, the young people of today, are the most privileged people who have ever lived on Earth. For the first time in history, one generation–your generation–holds the key to the greatest challenge humans have faced since they became conscious of themselves and the world. It’s the challenge of change: timely change.

The world your fathers and forefathers have created is no longer sustainable. This means that if it doesn’t change, it will break down. It cannot keep going as it is.

Financial crisis and climate change are just the most visible of the many untenable conditions in the world. Urban overcrowding, the breakdown of the health of vast populations, violence as a response to social injustice, and war waged to secure economic and political interests are additional threats on the horizon. Catastrophes resulting from commercially motivated reliance on inherently dangerous technologies are others.

We are seven billion humans on the planet. How many of us will survive the next twenty years? Or the next ten? And if some of us go under, how will the rest manage, given our interdependence and our ability to wipe out vast populations and entire ecosystems at the push of a button?…Continue reading at InspireMeToday.com.

Dr. Ervin is a world renowned philosopher and the author of over fifty books.

Don't buy anything that is not labeled organic, natural means nothing at all, only higher prices . Even your good old natural potato chips and nuts cooked in vegetable or cotton seed oil all gmo. People wonder why 1 in 50 children have autism, vaccines? Maybe Monsanto....Stick to the brands that have been true to organic, not the one's that are now producing organic because they are foreseeing future loses. They have been selling you food that is not fit to eat and now beginning to provide organic. Why now? Their profits. People are becoming aware of this epidemic. Every study of vitamins prove they are ineffective and cause more harm them good, don't support any vitamin at all, natural or not .They do not work. They waste resources to produce and transport them...Go green..... eat green.....
