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.

Dear Billionaire

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? Or do it yourself.

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 our bridge to the future falling down?

Why is reducing carbon emission not nearly enough?

The answers are in the book:

Building a Better World, one individual at a time

Global socio-economic stress is feverishly high and rising. People are suffering and our planet is burning up. High global stress led to two world wars in the 20th century. Yet it is beyond the skillsets of politicians and their institutions to significantly reduce societal stress.

"If we don't take action, the collapse of our civilizations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon." — Sir David Attenborough at the 2018 U.N. Climate Conference.

You and I will take action to save civilization and the natural world. We need to reduce global STRESS. This can only be accomplished by reducing stress one individual at a time. Yoga does that best. Three hundred million people are already practicing yoga around the world. When your favorite yoga is coupled with activism, that is Holigent Yoga.

Holigent Yoga is physical, mental and spiritual exercise combined with activism that will reduce societal stress and elevate quality of life one individual at a time.

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 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 a 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 instruction manual. 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. However, economic collaborations seem a good idea.

Here is the problem: The behavior of wealth and capital never been fully understood. This provided surprises along history by occasionally bringing out the pitchforks, guillotines, and the Bolsheviks in bloody upheavals. While we knew it forever 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

is to give away

a thousand books.

Ask these questions

Why is global socio-economic stress feverishly high and rising?

Why is it that the last time global stress was as high as it is today, during the 1930s, it led to World War II?

How can we stop history from repeating itself?

Find the answers in Dear Billionaire

There is talk, talk and talk about global warming or blah, blah, blah as Greta Thunberg put it, but no meaningful action. Consequently, the scientific report about climate change is getting worse at each yearly United Nations Climate Conference. "The collapse of our civilizations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon" (Sir David Attenborough) and will be at our doorstep sooner than we could comfortably contemplate.

Considering the above I will not talk, adding more hot air to an already overheated atmosphere. Instead I ride through the city on my Save the World Tricycle giving away my latest book, Dear Billionaire: We can save the world now or never — an action guide that may do the job if we get enough participation. 

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. In my book Dear Billionaire: We can save the world now or never, I present an action plan by which young and old, individuals, organizations and institutions can do their part, before the window of opportunity closes forever.
