Project Integrity International:
Philosophy & Plan for a New Economy
Crime, epidemics, pollution, political corruption, violence, ignorance, and
catastrophic environmental disasters threaten our species’ survival at a rapidly accelerating pace. Today more than ever, it is critical that international communities foster the growth of environmentally and life sustaining technological innovations. Yet, “green” is simply not enough. While sustainable products and services are certainly critical to the survival of our people and the natural environment, they alone do not end wars, fight poverty, solve for unemployment, curb crime, or serve as magic bullets for any of our global epidemics. Beyond launching the latest innovations in the sustainable marketplace, Project Integrity International strategically lays down the platform for an international franchise of educational, spiritual, social, and ecofriendly entrepreneurial opportunities that absorb people away from the destructive military-industrial establishments dominating human societies across the globe. PII proposes a comprehensive solution to so many problems facing humankind in the 21st Century while saturating her members with a tidal wave of exciting entrepreneurial opportunities.
What is Wealth?:
Thinking Back & Moving Forward
Seeking to understand the events and trends of the Global Economy by solely comparing such various models as Capitalism, Communism, or Socialism is akin to attempting to interpret a great literary work by comparing the letters of the alphabet. A true and full understanding of any and all given economic “systems” must take into deep consideration the instinctual, religious, political, and cultural influences upon consumer choices, attitudes concerning work ethic standards, and moral codes dictating social behaviors. Until this critical assessment is achieved, humankind shall remain tangled up in the cross hairs of countless bloody wars, social violence, relentless poverty, and an academic agenda that is subservient to the military-industrial complex. This series of essays not only addresses the myriad of ills plaguing human societies across the globe, but attempts to pinpoint their interconnected causations through a cross-disciplinary examination. The critical inquiry into the age old question, “What is Wealth?,” is the starting point whereby individuals and com- munities can begin to innovate and implement economic models that benefit workers, consumers, and the natural environment.
Feel Wheel Emotional Wellness Strategy:
Emotional Intelligence for the Radical Thinker
What all human beings share in common is that their emotional states play a leading role in directing the quality and productivity of their lives. For the radical thinkers among us, our emotionality can often be greatly amplified in the face of our facing of reality. Because radical thinkers do not choose a life of denial—hiding from the world’s woes behind televi- sion, pop entertainment, pill popping, reckless consumerism, and fake news—the reality of the world hits us hard. We not only choose to challenge the senseless wars of conquest, needless toxicity of modern consumer culture, domestic violence, and the status quo climate of mediocrity-as-usual lifestyle, but we deeply feel the pain and turmoil of it all. Radical thinkers often suffer the tendency to go down the proverbial rabbit hole of deep paralyzing despair that sometimes renders them counterproductive at best and self- destructive at worst. The Feel Wheel Emotional Wellness Strategy is designed to help radical thinkers—and all other readers—to manage their emotions in a way that preserves the sense of self, meaningfulness, and effectiveness inherent in each and every one of us.
