If we are to save the planet, we need to think outside the box like never before. Utopia Found rises to meet this epic challenge. It is unlike anything ever written: a journey through the whole of the human experience in search of those special elements of culture that, collectively, have the power to save us. This book offers a brand new paradigm for living peacefully and sustainably on earth.

3. Jesus Christ and the Worldwide Traditions of Yoga

The world is primed for radical changes in government where each of us has an equal voice and all are held accountable. In Architecture of a Technodemocracy, Hanania provides a detailed blueprint on how to leverage current government processes, communications systems, and blockchain security to take the next step in the evolution of human government. By harnessing technology that already exists, we can nonviolently reshape our respective governments.
The cooperation of modern politicians is not a requirement. A technodemocracy can be created without spending any tax dollars, passing any new laws, or otherwise turning to career politicians for leadership. Like Bitcoin, technodemocracy uses readily available technologies to decentralize power from the 1% to the 100%. Its principles can be applied to any nation.
Despite being drafted more than 200 years ago, the Constitution enables a U.S. technodemocratic republic. No nation in history has ever had such an absolute straightaway to a ...
"Pamela King Cable has created an unforgettable heroine in Neeley McPherson, a remarkable young woman of such courage and spunk that she dares to stand against unspeakable abuse and injustice not only for herself but also for her beloved caretaker, Gideon.

I blend into the walls, like other women: faceless, no expression -- a dead look. I've lost my identity, my individuality. I no longer know myself. The other women are young, Black, Hispanic, few White, like me. If there's a 'me' underneath this faceless disguise that has attached itself to my body, I want it to leave, now! After having been married with children, colonial home, belonging to golf country clubs, and divorce, at age 68, after surgery and medical bills, I had no other choice but to sign myself into a Homeless Shelter.

We all seek a good life for ourselves, but even more so, for our children and grandchildren.
But what is a good life?
What stops us from having a good life?
And how can we achieve a good life, or at least a better life?
In this book, we use our knowledge of the mind, in particular our knowledge about humps, to help us to better understand what a good life is, and how to better achieve a good life (or at least have a better life).
Importantly, this book won't (and can't) tell you what your specific directions to a good life are. However, this book does offer help for you to determine your own specific directions (which depends on your specific humps and the specific humps of those around you). If we don't know and follow our own directions, then we are following others' directions.
This book is part of the series 'With Humps in Mind'. The basic premise of this series is that the better we understand our own mind, the better we will use our mind, the wiser we will be, and the better ...
