presents

Blue Planet Governance

A Story to live by

 

 

 

Small blue sliver

 

 

 

We live on this small blue dot –     – our home as seen from space

 

 

 

 

 

Our Vision Statement…

 

 

 

 

 

The era of global tragedy of the commons ends.

The new paradigm begins when Interdependent Regional Governments unite!

To form a chaordic organization called the United Regions

Where coordinated expertise in Earth Science, Human-Nature and Economics,

Provide Regional Governments Guidance to Maximize Real Wealth:

 

Real wealth is a measurement of a robust ecology

and of the general health and happiness of the people!

5a Are we ready to enact?

 

On November 12, 1936 Winston Churchill grew so exasperated with the continuing failure of Britain to prepare for Hitler’s onslaught that he charged in a speech to the House of Commons:  “The government simply cannot make up their minds, or they cannot get the Prime Minister to make up his mind.  So they go on in strange paradox, decide only to be undecided, resolve to be irresolute, adamant for drift, solid for fluidity, all –powerful to be impotent... the era of procrastination, of half-measures, of soothing and baffling expedients of delays, is coming to its close.  In its place we are entering a period of consequences.”

 

The envisioned scenarios are over and we are back to real time.  Time, where we continue to live straddling the infinitely narrow division between past and future.  The past is history, impervious to change.  On the other side of the thin time-divide lies our fluid and capricious future. 

 

Churchill had the good fortune of having a highly visible enemy.  Also, England’s history has had a long familiarity with the mechanics of war.  His main issue was to motivate the government to acknowledge their peril and follow a reasonably familiar course of action that they were familiar with and good at – to engage the machinery of war. 

 

Today’s peril is not so easy to identify.  I have seen the enemy, and the enemy is us, is an often repeated comment from a Pogo cartoon.  We have no history on how to deal with the problem that our planet suddenly became much too small for us – or the realistic flip side view that we find there is now a longage of human-activity.

 

We cannot expand the planet but we can reduce human-activity.  In past excess human activity has been dealt with by Mother Nature through the common overgrowth and die-off cycles after complex societies collapse outgrow their resource, the same cycles are common deer or locust or any species that finds a temporary niche environment.  After these growth/die-off events some individuals would usually survive and move on to more fertile areas.  But now the human footprint is global.  While there are many creative and useful initiatives, either suggested, or underway those are largely designed: to deal with local issues; or to measure and report on vital ecosystem parameters, or work toward dealing with larger scale issues pertaining to one specific element of the human predicament such as co2 reduction or peak-oil.  But to date there appears to be no existing holistic interactive approach that would be essential if we are to even consider dealing with our common pervasive global problem of excessive human footprint.

 

To deal with symptoms of a faulty system while ignoring faulty root cause(s) is futile - for example.  We need a new approach using a medley of well-known methods to deal with both the population and the activity components of human-activity.  The Blue Planet Governance proposal calls for a redesigned sociopolitical guidance system representing one large dynamic interactive system of interconnected interdependent Regions of our diverse civilization.  The people of all Regions have a keen self-interest in mutual survival – but this desire must be based on mutual survival.  With appropriate interactivity the collective of Regions will be can generate the synergetic boost of cooperation when presented with one fundamental collective goal – to place the highest priority of preserving the integrity of the Gaian natural systems of life on Spaceship Earth.

 

Just what is a desired collective future is a highly subjective matter, but from all that I have learned, the goals of the proposed dynamic society would be rather desirable for many.

As Reverend Thomas Berry said many years ago in, Dream Of The Earth, “We will go into the future as a single sacred community, or we will all perish in the desert".  We definitely need to define our collective community.  Community-spirit can add synergy to the movement toward preserving the Gaian fabrics of life, a community of many communities providing diversity and opportunity for humans to continue exploring and learning the deeper secrets of Gaian and surrounding space.  We can do all of these while in compliance with the agreed protocols of BDG.

 

Lester Malbrath’s words from his ’89 book, Envisioning a Sustainable Society, repeated here;

Our common journey promises to be challenging and exciting even though difficult.  It will be much easier and more likely successful if we face it optimistically with a deep understanding of the pace and character of social transformation.  Those given the gift of understanding will become the conscious mind of the biocommunity, a global mind that will guide and hasten the transformation.  Those who understand what is happening to our world are not free to shrink from this responsibility.
