An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come. Victor Hugo The world is for the public good, such is the Great Way.

Small Planet Institute Go to this Web site

We believe that ideas have enormous power and that humans are capable of changing failing ideas in order to turn our planet toward life. At the Small Planet Institute, we seek to identify the core, often unspoken, assumptions and forces — economic, political, and psychological — now taking our planet in a direction that as individuals none of us would choose. We disseminate this deeper understanding of root causes.
