Once again, the U.S. and Russia are edging towards the death dance JFK engaged in with Nikita Khrushchev during the 1962 Cuban missile crisis.
The ego-sparing between Hillary Clinton and Vladimir Putin has been escalating for months, almost as if to precipitate the current crisis, only ostensibly over the Ukraine.
We know George Soros is behind Obama and heir apparent Clinton. Heaven only knows what puppeteer is pulling Putin’s (or for that matter, Soros’s) strings.
None of this is said lightly. In fact, the title Rethinking Survival: Getting to the Positive Paradigm of Change refers to Albert Einstein’s prescient warning. Human survival can no longer be taken for granted. Nuclear annihilation, so terrible a prospect that most of us refuse to wrap our minds around the possibility, doesn’t disappear by just denying it.
A ground swell of public opinion should be stirred to put worldwide pressure on leaders to back off from the terrible brink. This is the Positive Action response to the threat of mortal danger recommended in the section “We’re in a Terrible Mess.”
Open letters to Putin, Clinton, Soros and Glenn Beck set the stage. Here are excerpts from the frontispiece:
“Cynics may ask, ‘Why do paradigms matter one way of the other? What do they have to do with survival?’ My repeated answer is, ‘A great deal!’ Rethinking Survival applies directly to practical politics. As an example of what’s possible, here are four open letters to world leaders currently dedicated to shaping the directions of our collective future.
“VLADIMIR PUTIN: Let history remember you differently from the first consolidator of all the Russias, Ivan, who impoverished the serfs and was called “The Terrible.” Be remembered as Vladimir, who protected his people, prevented starvation and was called “The Wise.”
“HILLARY CLINTON: John F. Kennedy’s undelivered speech left us a legacy. Parallel to Einstein’s unfinished quest for the Unified Theory, the time is right to pick up Kennedy’s fallen flag and move forward, using the Positive Paradigm as the basis of a common leadership initiative.
”GEORGE SOROS: In a flash, history’s greatest persecutor of truth changed into its greatest advocate. Like Saul become Paul, you still have time to open your eyes and truly soar in the annals of history by making a similar reversal. Apply the Positive Paradigm to your own life choices. See Part Three: Atheism Answered.
“GLENN BECK: Back Clinton and Putin’s efforts to transcend ego animosities for the sake of something truly worthwhile. Call on them to build lifeboats ahead of the crash looming ahead. Help them complete the unfulfilled legacies of Einstein and JFK. We have lost time to make up for.”
Commentators on TheBlaze, notably Jay Severin, have decried Russia’s so-called “intervention” in the Ukraine and expressed outrage over the ironic possibility of Putin receiving a Nobel Peace Prize. Though, why not? He’d fit right in with other recipients like Henry Kissinger and besieged Americans’ current disastrous leader.
Severin is adamant that his boss, Glenn Beck, has done much more for world peace than Putin. Hmmm. I’m not so sure about that one. What’s still missing is a critical piece of the information puzzle, lacking which, things continue to go terribly wrong, even despite the best of intentions.
The greatest irony of all is that Einstein had the key all along, but never knew it. Read Rethinking Survival for the missing Unified Theory. A five star Amazon review describes it as: “A broad brush stroke type of book that touches and colors so many elements and areas of life. A great read and well worth the investment.”
Read it. Give the Positive Paradigm of Change a chance. At stake is nothing less that human survival.
