A Monumental Historic Undertaking.|
The Paradigm Shift.
There is no escaping
Viewing the future through the eyes of science is an awakening experience.
Our ability to extrapolate forward to the next century reveals
the undeniable fact that the human race will soon face the historic equivalent
of a dash-for-survival.
We have a single generation to decide. Will the coming centuries bring a new renaissance
or a new dark age? Shall we end the age of poverty or face sociological decline? Will our future be "Star Trek" or "Soylent Green"? Do the
meek inherit the earth or do the not-so-meek ruin it? At this point in human history, it would seem obvious that the aggressively
destructive forces have "won" in their determined pursuits of personal power and wealth. The rest of the world, the
so-called "have-nots", face a monumental decision. That decision is to radically shift the paradigm of human behavior
or hand down a thousand years of ruin to our descendents. It's actually a very simple issue. We must choose either
sweeping reforms or sweeping extinctions, and we have perhaps, a single generation to decide.
If we are to cure poverty, then we also must change the current economic paradigm. If we are to put an end to urban sprawl,
we must reject the paradigm of manifest destiny and all that it implies in terms of self-serving expansionism.
As environmentalist, Edward Abbey once noted: "Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell."
If we are to save the biosphere, we must transform the way in which we relate to the natural environment. And if we
are to do any of it at all ... we must alter the most basic model of modern government itself. Today, Americans gaze
in awe at our natural wonders, proud to live in a nation of such physical beauty. However, most are unaware that in
order to save it all from long-range ruin, a revolution in the political arena must occur; and in our own lifetimes.
In the same way that science followed in the footsteps of alchemy on the path to great modern discoveries, the paradigm
shift theory comes behind the great democratic thinkers on the path of revealing the long-awaited secrets to the very
sustainability of our small shared planet. Once again, humanity lingers at a critical crossroads. We must stop dividing
over cultural issues, such as abortion and race, and look into the critical face of the future; as those who must live
there gaze back at us.
It is actually quite easy to understand the paradigm shift. Imagine it this way: All of humanity is riding
along on the same train that is running along its own well-laid track. The many disciplines of science have
combined to tell us, that without doubt, our destination is the twin perils of sociological and environmental
decline. All of today's public discussion and news commentary, republican and democratic party marketing, every
activist, group, and third party; no matter how 'right', are all part of that single shared ride to ruin. To save
planet Earth we must re-direct ourselves onto an entirely different track without actually destroying the train.
This is the essence of the paradigm shift.
This section of Common Sense Now offers a brief overview of the vital issues that must be addressed if our global
journey is to steer clear of a disastrous end. This area presents an outline of the factors we must address
as we shift the paradigm of human behavior. The items that you find here are by no means random. We can prove to
anyone that the issues introduced on this page are vital to the cause of the paradigm shift. We can also prove that
the Common Sense of America three-part strategy can accomplish it on a global scale.
We call upon all those who wish to see the world united in the cause of legitimate planetary stewardship to
participate in our strategy. The first step, both as individuals and collectively,
is to take a moment and finding the most useful emotional and intellectual starting point. The context must
shift outward. We must move from the big-picture to a more profound and intimate point of view, instead of
working from minutiae outward. The first step in this process is to visualize ourselves at a point where we
can look back on our world from an absolutely honest and present perspective. How to do this? We must each
begin by clearing our minds of all distractions. Hold in your imagination a view of our Earth and everything
you have learned about our planet and the collective impact of human behavior. See the blue and white majesty
of our shared planet. Imagine that the entire Earth is a child, your child. No loving parent will take chances
with a child's health or future. If you can begin to think of our planet as your own child, you can begin to save the future.
The first of three giant steps toward planetary survival will require a shift in four vital paradigms: Education,
information, economics, and societal unity. To save America and the global biosphere will require nothing short of
a monumental effort and an unprecedented historic undertaking. We are also revealing a political strategy that
will allow us to do it, and do it we must; for in the future, our most obsessive debates will be relegated to foot
notes as the human train and all aboard face the onset of an environmental and sociological
decline lasting for a millennia.
The Paradigm Shift must come.
There is no escaping this fact.
Rules Have Changed, so the Mission Must Evolve.
Tools and Strategy.
The setting of the
So here we are. Humanity has finally dragged
itself out of the cesspool of dictatorships and fiefdoms, formerly known as
civilization. We have finally created a democracy designed to provide equal
protection under the law for all of its citizens. The problem is that many believe
this to be the apex of our accomplishment, the top of the mountain. We're
not done yet.
Common Sense holds the
understanding, and philosophers would agree, that we have only summited a small
hill. From it, we can look back at those following behind and just get a glimpse of
the real mountain, the new paradigm of civilization, that waits in the
scientist, philosopher, theologian or historian will tell you; at best, the present paradigm of consumption and exploitation
will hold the human race in a stalemate of political corruption and societal
decline. No human being on Earth will deny, that the very best thing we can
do for those not yet born is to shift the paradigm to conservation and
compassion, so they may inherit a world that welcomes them in justice and benevolence.
The other aspect of it is this:
If we do not start moving toward the next great ascent, the paradigm shift; and
soon, children born two centuries from today will
inherit an irreversible double-disaster. Theirs will be an existence
beset by cascading extinctions and a broken ethno-sphere. In the 22nd century, as they look back at us squabbling about things that the media chooses
to give air-play; our descendents will tremble with rage at our utter failure to recognize the
inter-relationship of education, information, economics, and national unity. They
will see our society driving a bad paradigm, regardless of fifty years of
urgent warnings from science ...
It is not the obligation of
Government to be the visionary. That is not its job. As you can see there is no
true vision in the political arena. The obligation of our elected leadership is
to take your vision and pass it into law; and then enforce that law, even when
ruthless special-interests try to circumvent it. Failure to follow this fundamental
rule has left us with a compromised political system; which has in turn, led to
a compromised economy, society, and environment. We are not simply witnessing,
but are driving forward all of these
If we do not address--and
even embrace--the difficulties of creating a better
nation, the young people of today will live just long enough to witness
Mother Nature's payback begin to rip through the living web. If we wish to reach planetary sustainability, we
must become a race of people who can and will do it. Only then can average and poor Americans become richer,
smarter, provided with first-class information, and extra free time to take
those things and make the world a better place.
The first step
toward national sustainability will require not only a powerful new 3rd Party, but also,
must entail a national outreach campaign on an extensive scale.
To accomplish these vital social and political objectives will be hard; however, it
will be nowhere near as hard as it would be to spend ten minutes in the 22nd century browsing through the news-of-the-day,
news that the most recent science reveals will be heartbreaking. While we're facing
the truth, let's go a step further. A century from today, it will be common knowledge that the opening generation
of the 21st century comprised the 'critical moment' in human history.
While they try to figure out what went wrong, future historians will
inevitably find themselves pouring over the topics seen on this page.
Let's take a lesson from history.
We have learned that if we do not create our own future, we will become victims
of a future that someone else will create for us. This process is happening
before our very eyes.
You have elected a government and
it doesn't work for you. It works against you. As it is, our government has
evolved into a private tool used by the rich to make permanent an opportunity to
get even richer. The Government who is entrusted with the environment--and
thus, the preservation of the biosphere--is failing in this vital obligation.
data is in. A few generations from today, our most fervent debates will be relegated to irrelevant
footnotes. Today, Americans gaze in awe at our
natural wonders, while unaware that to save it all from long-range ruin a revolution
in the political arena will need to occur. If
we are to save the future, we must replace the politicians themselves. There is too little time left and far too much at stake to settle for a
government that fails to live up to its most vital obligations. Common
Sense has a start-to-finish strategy to get America back on the right

This may be the single biggest question "they" don't want you to
Let's step outside of the box we have
come to accept as the norm, and take a fresh look at the very idea of national
We have a mosquito-economy. It attacks us voraciously in
order to suck out our life's blood from any surface.
This phenomenon is not promoted and maintained by any coordinated and deliberate conspiracy, but through
a simple and reprehensible 'conspiracy of neglect'.
Consider your nation as a physical body. The forests, streams, and deserts
are the skin of the body. Who owns the body? According to our Founding Fathers, The Constitution, The
Bill of Rights and the fundamental rules of democracy--"The People" do. That was easy, because it is
the response we have been taught since we were children.
If the body is owned by The People, then the "skin" belongs to
The People. If the body is owned by The People, so is the "blood." So who owns the money? U.S.
currency, in all its forms, is the blood of the body. The American People--collectively--own the money. You own a piece of every U.S. dollar, no matter where in the world it exists or
what form it takes. You own a piece of every transaction involving a U.S. dollar wherever it
occurs on the planet. Common Sense of America says 'it's time to use our vote--and collect'!
So how do we save planet Earth? The environmentalist crusade is
not the first step. The process of successfully unifying all nations in a
legitimate partnership toward environmental stewardship must begin by removing the crush
of poverty from the poorest citizens. Why?--Because it is those
average and poor citizens who must force the necessary changes into their government
through their vote. It is average Americans who must be provided a reason to expend the energy
involved in changing their world. The only true authentic hope for The People, as they struggle
to preserve their planet, is a radical shift away from the current archaic economic paradigm.
This vision of an enlightened economy will inspire even the most apathetic citizen to adjust
the way they perceive their own government, stand up, and demand
To put it another way: The meek must inherit the earth! However,
before they can inherit the earth they must reclaim their own economy. Yet, before they can gain
control of their own economy, they must be taught how to take control of their own government.
This process must happen soon because the not-so-meek are right on course to ruin the earth.
If we are to successfully empower the environmentalist mission, we
must first design an economy that distributes our national wealth through everyday American lives.
It's a fascinating and encouraging concept, isn't it? The first giant step toward long-range
environmental survival must begin by doubling your income.
It begins by thinking differently about who owns the money.
The age of poverty must end before an era of authentic environmental survival may begin.
The new manifest destiny is economic--and we can prove it!

The Time frame.

During the very moment humanity finds that it is actually in possession of the tools needed for reform,
we realize that we only have a very brief period of time in which to use them effectively. Common Sense
of America has created a start-to-finish strategy to make use of those tools, and to use them in time.

With the chasm between rich and poor expanding further,
and with both Government and commercial media dominated by the rich,
the window through which it is possible to implement solutions for
eradicating poverty is quickly closing.†
Accompanying the mass of new scientific data regarding global warming comes
an important and shocking detail. Our atmosphere appears to have a theoretical
'breaking point' and we are nearly there. Once again, we have a small window of
opportunity to become a global community that is truly united in its determination
to establish an authentic planetary stewardship.†
In order to succeed, a global partnership dedicated to the cause of legitimate planetary
stewardship must be established in ways that will assure that it both persuades and thrives.
This will require the legitimate participation of the elected officials, activists, and
political theorists of all industrialized nations on Earth. The most important emphasis
must be made on the word and the construct of "legitimate".

ruin for humanity? Decided right here.
Government For Sale.
Secrecy no longer necessary.
We have libraries, and bookstores, and videotape vaults full with the works of
the greatest historians, scientists, and philosophers. Since the time of Lincoln, they have been telling us that the influence of our political leaders, and actions of our
lawmakers, are up for sale to the highest bidder. And yet, with all the
demonstrations, whistleblowers, investigative journalism, Congressional hearings, and campaign promises the game is still fixed; and
firmly from the inside.
There is a crisis of legitimacy
in our government. The Democratic and Republican Parties are both mired
in the same schemes and abuses. Both are addicted to special-interest money
and therefore, beholden to big business. The political process is successfully
manipulated from within, and the lobbying industry can block virtually any bill or reform they
wish. We are all learning to our shock and horror that the game is fixed
from the inside!
The real issue is not about how to get
the message to our elected officials. The message is already there. Governors, Congressmen, Senators, and Presidents have
been tossing the ball of reform around for decades! The issue is what our
elected representatives in Congress do with the message. And of
course, we are all aware of the answer: Not enough.
The reason is now plain
to see. Corporate
America has discovered that unity is strength and is solidly united in its
infiltration of our government. The host/parasite relationship between special-interests and our lawmakers must be broken.
humanity stands on the edge of a future in peril, with each of us sharing in the
understanding that there is little time left in which to cause adequate reforms,
and recognizing that the lobbyist-politician liaison will over and over again
block any significant reform legislation; we are faced with the undeniable necessity
of bringing about the complete removal of corporate lobbyist and business-related
pressure from government. Common Sense of America has the

If We Fail to Recover Present-Day America.
Glimpse the chilling result of
apathy and political corruption.
We know from history that even the most seemingly indestructible empire can rapidly crumble. And we can see from careful
observation that America is well into the beginning stages of that process.
America in 50 years: Urban sprawl is creeping unstoppably across the
land. Solutions for skyrocketing unemployment exist only in the form of
placating speeches written for compromised politicians. Wages remain pressed
to the bottom limit, owing to the unrestrained influx of foreign labor. The
rich are steadily becoming richer, and the gulf between rich and poor has
become like a wall.
By 2050, the population of the
United States will be approaching half a billion. Travel through the nation will be more
like moving country to country than city to city. Fully one-third of the
population of America does not speak English and simply doesn't care to.
Public education continues to drop as students divide themselves into
nationality-zones. Racial tensions are among the highest in the world and
communities have re-aligned along nationality-lines. The unified voice of The
American People will be forever silenced through this eternally divided
The commercial media remains

All hope of solving poverty will have moved forever out of reach. The dream
of an America at peace within itself, will live on only in the minds of a few
elderly people. There will still be Americans who cry out for reform. They
will be rebuffed in a hundred languages, and will quickly slip back into
we arrive in the middle of the 21st century, the rich will still be getting
richer and the poor will be trapped in an undeterred population surge. At least 95%
of Americans will be locked in struggle within a society that is beyond any
hope of economic or societal repair. The last of the federal lands have
been opened up for logging, road building, and mining.
By 2050, C02 levels in our
atmosphere will be double of what they are now. The climate will be getting
steadily warmer. Tundra, permafrost, glaciers, and polar caps will be receding.
At which point, Mother Nature's payback for centuries of abuse takes center

Going Where the Truth Leads Us.
Tragic certainty with mathematical
number of very elite companies stand to make vast fortunes when the population spirals out of control.
The post 1970 political culture thinks of the American future purely in terms
of corporate profits. An area three times the size of Britain was recently opened up for
mining, drilling, logging, and road building. Our national sustainability is vanishing under an
unprecedented wave of eager newcomers, deliberately encouraged by our corporate giants, and
negligently enabled by our own elected politicians.
The population of the United States has
increased by 100 million, since 1970. An estimated 60-70 million of those are
from outside our borders. The Census Bureau projection for 2050 is
420 million. This does not include tens upon millions of illegal border
violations. Due to current trends, in just a few decades fully one third of the
population of America will be unable and unwilling to speak English. At which
point, any reforms that require a united American voice: ending urban
sprawl, eradicating poverty, preserving the environment, creating free
education and healthcare; and most importantly removing lobbyists from
government will move forever out of reach.
This issue, that is merely
inconvenient today, is of undeniable urgency to our descendents. Let's not
steal from future generations the pleasure of living in a united America. If we lose

|The Point Where All Doubt
Peeling Back The Layers.|
On a Conspiracy of Neglect.
What has happened to America? The gulf between rich and poor
is becoming like a wall. Neither major party nor the commercial media is willing
to open up about the root causes. The Chairman's Council stepped back for a long and careful look. We identified the critical link among
economics, information, education, societal unity, and the post-1970
distortion of America.
The negative aspects of the post-1970 shift in America are so
extreme as to be easily described in terminology generally reserved for law
enforcement. So let's examine the observable negative trends as we would if we
were conducting a criminal investigation. Let's begin as a detective would, by
peeling back the layers until we identify the beneficiary of the crisis. What
we find in this case is conspiracy--of neglect.
