"We are the New Civilization" - a poetic manifesto by Flemming Funch.


"Forget everything I've been telling you about working with governments and bureaucracies! I've been lying here being an anthropologist in my own dying - fascinating experience, by the way; there is no hierarchy to it - and I've had an important insight into the future. The world is going to change so fast that people and governments will not be prepared to be stewards of change. What will save them is teaching-learning communities. They come together in churches or businesses or even in families. They could meet weekly and do your kind of exercises, especially ones that develop their capacities. There must be humor, laughter, games and good food as well. That will keep the participants coming back. Then, when they feel ready, they will choose projects to work on to help their communities. The only way to have a possible society, Jean, is to develop the possible human at the same time. "   Margaret Mead, on her death bed, as quoted by Jean Houston
