Across towns, states and the nation millions of young and old protest, petition and look to you to solve and remedy the problems that are relentlessly pushing societies and the natural world toward collapse and extinction. It must be painful to know that there are no instruments in the political toolbox that could effectively solve the problems. The old tools don't work. There is an urgent need to step outside the box and invent new tools that can solve the problems of 21st century's hyper complexity that combines societal and environmental challenges.

Did you see 15-year-old Greta Thunberg striking for her future? Because,

"Why go to school if I don't have a future?"


Have you heard 90+ year-wise Sir David Attenborough at a UN Climate Conference? "If  we don't take action, the collapse of our civilizations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon."


Did you read the book, The Uninhabitable Earth, by David Wallace-Wells?


I have, and my life has changed. I no longer wait for someone else to save our future I decided to do it myself. It is a big job! Will you help?

Your donation will be the seed from which a new order of

social, economic and environmental justice, quality and

systemic sustainability will grow.


Why is reducing carbon emission not nearly enough?

Transformative Societal Reconstruction

Building universal quality of life, global peace and systemic sustainability

AN URGENT ACTION PLAN



Saving the World ;-) I used to mention with a smile and a wink — not any more. In my fifth book Dear Billionaire: We can save the world now or never, and on this website we talk about Healing and Saving the World seriously. The problem with Saving the World is that it is a nebulous subject that is hard to grab. The purpose of this website and the Book is to put handles on the subject so that young and old, individuals, organizations and institutions can grab it. Collectively, then we can move the subject from nebulous nowhere to a doable domain of the here and now.

The United States needs to make a historic decision similar to the one that aided Europe in winning World War II and helped reconstruct much of the Continent. This decision is to plant the seed and nurture Transformative Societal Reconstruction —  developing social, economic and environmental justice, quality and sustainability. This will require heroic efforts and the outlay of treasure, but no blood.


The first phase of that effort is for Congress and the President of the United States to establish the Department of Homeland Reconstruction. This is to secure funding of experimental societal retrofit and reconstruction programs (one community at a time) to search and find ways to comply with nature’s building and sustainability code.


All in a long-range program to reduce socio-economic stress around the world while building universal quality of life, global peace and systemic sustainability — securing life and wellbeing for people, our planet and for the natural world. The book, Dear Billionaire is your action guide. 

                                                                                                  

I was born into the Great Depression, survived the Nazi hunt for my life and the bombs of World War II in Budapest. Grew up in mindless and murderous soviet occupation and escaped communist Hungary across the partially dismantled Iron Curtain in 1956. My heroic Mother took the arduous journey with me to the Austrian border to see me off to the West. At our parting, I promised her to be careful not to step on a landmine.


In much of my growing up, I was hiding, running, escaping often a step ahead of death. It took years and thousands of miles for the early images and the questions to catch up with me during a late evening walk on the Westside of Los Angeles. My eight-year-old self emerging from the bomb shelter, near the end of the War in 1945, asking: Why would grownups destroy beautiful Budapest and kill innocent people?

You can build an experimental nature-compliant community (a Holigent Village) to amuse yourself or as your part in a collective effort to save the world.


Oh yes I hear, you are planing to jet to your remote island on the Pacific when big trouble comes. Please remember it has to be very remote for the nuclear clouds not to find you. But if you find such a remote place, I am worried that boredom may kill you anyway.


So, you going to Mars!  Wish you good luck. Though, I have doubts: If we couldn't make it on Earth, the most habitable planet in the known universe, how do you plan to make it on a dead rock in cold and empty space?


In any case, before you leave, won't you give Earth one last chance? The book, Dear Billionaire is your guide. And remember, if we are still here, come back often for warm, wet and green vacations. 

Dear United Nations Official


Have you noticed a peculiar thing lately? As you all meet in big rooms for the yearly Climate Conference to eat, drink and talk and talk about reducing carbon emission, or "blah, blah, blah" as Greta Thunberg puts it (forgive her honesty, she is just a child). The peculiar thing is that each year the scientific reports on global warming and the evening news about catastrophic climate events get worse and worse.


I suspect that you are not proud of yourself seeing on your watch "The collapse of civilizations and the extinction of much of the natural world on the horizon" — Sir David Attenborough, approaching faster than we could comfortably contemplate. Please take a look at the illustration of our bridge to the future and see if you can make any sense out of it. In any case, please read Dear Billionaire. You too can save the world.  

Dear European Union Official


Ever wondered why the Brits exited and why the unhappy rumbling across EU? Here is a hint: EU is made of countries large and small, with long and varied history, culture and temperament. It is understandable why the concept of United States is not replicable — EU's one size political economy does not fit all.


Here is the problem: The behavior of wealth and capital never been fully understood. This provided unpleasant surprises along history by occasionally bringing out the pitchforks, guillotines, and the Bolsheviks in bloody upheavals. While we knew that the rich get richer while the poor get poorer, Thomas Piketty put this common wisdom into a formula such as r > g. You can think of this as the DNA of wealth, codifying the behavior of capital that will perpetually migrate vertically from the "99%" to the "1%" and horizontally from one nation or region to another.


On the European Continent, the North attracts wealth at the expense of other parts. On the borderless continent human resource follows the money and that is the root of "Brain Drain" for East and Central Europe. This is, and will be painfully felt and resented for generations leading to further disintegration of EU with probable catastrophic consequences. You too can save the world by saving Europe. Dear Billionaire is your action guide. 

   



Mr. Secretary of Defense,  

Please start a global Peace Offensive to avoid a nuclear world war


Our proposed Peace Offensive may provide the starting point for productive conversations about establishing a small department within the Pentagon dedicated to initiating and promoting a Peace Offensive in the spirit of the Holigent Peace and Sustainability Initiative. With its vast resources and global footprint, the Pentagon is perhaps the only institution in the world that, with the right spirit, could turn the course of global events away from a probable mutually assured destruction toward world peace and systemic sustainability. 

                                                                           

My current mission:

Exercise and give away

a thousand books.

The Holigent Project: Transformative Societal Reconstruction to build communities with hybrid socioeconomic arrangements to comply with nature's building and sustainability code will be a trans-generational program. However, with your participation and donations we can begin organizing now to build a better bridge to our future of quality of life in peaceful systemic sustainability.

Nearly fifty years and five books after that evening walk, I am getting serious about saving the world. No, I am not planing to do it alone. On this site and in my fifth book Dear Billionaire you can find your action part in building a better bridge to a peaceful and sustainable future before the window of opportunity closes forever.                                                                                                                                                                  

  

Dear Educator,


You are devoting your life teaching young people to learn, pass exams and become consumer slaves in our system of techno-industrial, extractive capitalist-consumerist military-industrial complex.


The downside of such civilization is that even if conflicts do not escalate to (MAD) Mutually Assured Destruction, it is not sustainable and will predictably deplete Earth's life-support capacity, leading to "Collapse of our civilizations and the extinction of much of the natural world" — Sir David Attenborough.


Won't you please reorder your devotion and open an experimental class teaching young people to follow the instruction of Socrates and examine life because the "Unexamined life is not worth living".  Introduce the teaching of Albert Einstein suggesting to develop a new mindset, because "A problem cannot be solved with the same mindset that created it". Teach young people to comply with nature's building and sustainability code as they are constructing a better bridge to their peaceful and sustainable future.

Dear Billionaire,

Please help young people building a better bridge to our future

   Feverish global stress is the result of extractive capitalist-consumerist overload of eight billion humans on Earth. We are in a race against time to avoid collapse and extinctions. Most institutions in this race are still at the starting gate. But there is hope! Yoga is way ahead. 300 million people are practicing yoga around the world improving their physical and mental wellbeing while reducing stress and elevating quality of life one individual at a time. This is what the world needs now!

    Politicians can't help, because building a peaceful and sustainable world is beyond their skillsets. Our world is made of billions of people. You and I can heal the world one individual at a time; if we don't do it, no one will. You can start with yourself. Then share the "medicine" with family, friends, neighbors, coworkers and strangers.

        The medicine is Holigent Yoga (HY). Chose your dose from the Menu:


                        1 Minute HY

Global socio-economic STRESS

is feverishly high and rising.


During the 1930s, high global socioeconomic stress led to

fascism and World War II?


Holigent Yoga will heal and save the world from

repeating history.
