Peace for Our Planet: A New Approach tells the story of a new historical dialectic in the world between two parallel processes—construction and destruction. The author proposes that a constructive global collective consciousness emerged in the nineteenth century, and humanity has since progressed toward the achievement of a more just and peaceful world. Outworn and destructive mindsets that have constituted the root causes of war for millennia—such as racism, nationalism, religious strife, gender inequality and extremes of wealth and poverty—have now been fully exposed and delegitimized. Those who have profited from these divisive attitudes, however, are bound to take a last stand. Amidst the blinding haze generated by the accelerating collapse of outworn mindsets and institutions, this book brings into focus the forward march of the constructive process toward peace, and the powerful role each of us can play in its realization.
