The Sustainability-of-a-Civilization depends upon the Sustainability of the realities that play Core-Roles within the Lives of the Predominant-Leaders within the Life-of-the-Civilization: e.g. A. The Honesty, Accuracy and Integrities of the: Visions, Dreams, Expectations, Assumptions, Attitudes, Reasoning, God-Talk and Duties - - - that play ore-Roles within the Lives of Leading-Members of the Crew - - - of the Astronomically Tiny-and-Isolated Blue-Spherical-Space-Ship-Earth - - - traveling with one Average-Star during its finite-life-time within the UNIMAGINABLY: vAST, EMPTY, AND COLD - - - expanding-and-cooling COSMOS - - - laced by subatomic-cosmic-ray-bullets that pass readily through mortals' tiny-space-ships and the bodies of the very-small-crews that such tiny-space-ships can transport crews-through nearby-inter-planetary and near-by-inter-stellar-space. ("Near-by" is here to be understood to be "in comparison to typical-inter-stellar-distances in our parts of our Milky-Way-Galaxy.) B. How Graciously-and-Helpfully the Crew's Predominant-Leaders work to Mitigate THEIR-OWN: Alienative-Conflicts, Collusive-Games-of-Mutual-Self-Deception and their Nations': Military-Industrial-Congressional-Complexes - - - that are Dedicated to the Concentration of: Wealth, Powers and Means-of-Alieantive-Technologies that are used by Super-Bullies. C. The Integrities of the Most-Honest-Reliable-and Sustainable Objective-and-Reflexive Systems-Analyses of the Predominant-Leaders of Space-Ship-Earth - - - in Augmenting Distributive-Justice throughout the Sustainable-Life of the Civilization of the Full-Crew of all of Space-Ship-Earth. D. How Prudently-Honestly-and-Accurately the Predominant-Leaders of the Whole-Crew of all of Space-Ship-Earth - - - deal with the Objective-and-Reflexive Aspects of using the Finite/Limited Material-Resource that exist accessibly within the Astronomically-Thin Cooled-Solid-Crust ( about a dozen kilometers-thick ) that floats on the Red-Hot-"Molten" SPHERE which is about 13,000 Kilometers in diameter. The volume of the Red-Hot-"Molten" SPHERE is about a TWO HUNDRED times the volume of the Cooled-Solid-Crust with ALL-COVETED accessible solid-material-resources buried WITHIN-IT. Thus, ALL of the ever-available Coveted-Material-Resources could fit inside a cube that would be about 140 kilometers on each edge! Greedy-Mortals will NEVER have access to any more significant-material-resources! WINNING Collusive-Games-of-Mutual-Self-Deception will NEVER help US ALL! E. Just How Prudently-Honestly-and-Accurately the Predominant-Leaders of the Whole-Crew of all of Space-Ship-Earth - - - deal with the FACT that once the coveted-accessible solid-material- resources that are buried within Space-Ship-Earth's Solid-Crust - - - have-been-rendered-of-no-more-use in Space-Ship-Earth - - - there are effectively no EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL- ACCESSIBLE Solid-Material-Resources that can in any practical-way be brought to Space-Ship-Earth for-use-here; or used by Millions-of-Mortals where the "accessible"-resources are found Outside-of-Space-ship-Earth <===> EXTRA-TERRESTRIALLY. F. How Coherently-and-Authentically The-Whole-Crew of Space-Ship-Earth TRANSCENDS-AND-LETS-GO of THE-VAST-MAJORITY of efforts TO-WIN COLLUSIVE-GAMES- OF-MUTUAL-SELF-DECEPTION that are CONCEALING ALL-KINDS-OF-THREATS to the Long-Term-Sustainability of "SPACE-SHIP-EARTH'S" civilization; e.g. THE-THREATS-OF: 1. Distributive-Injustice. 2. Ignoring Inconvenient-Truths-About: a. "Endless-Healthy" Economic Exponential-Growth, b. "Endless-Exponential-Growths" of all other kinds that Consume-Material-Resources - - - c. Global-Climate-Changes - - - to which human activities DO-Contribute In-Measurable-Ways - - - d. The Finitude of all the Limited-Material-Resources which Mortals-Covet - - - e. The Knowable Nature of any real God that Transcends Mortals - - - f. The Knowable Nature of Space-Ship-Earth, how it came into existence and how it is likely to cease to be habitable - - - g. The Knowable Nature of the Cosmos, and how it came into existence and how it is likely to cease to be inhabited by our descendents - - - 3. Greedy: Capitalists, Capitalistic-Corporations and Capitalistic-Military-Institutions - - - that are Net-Destructive on a Global-Scale. 4. Conflicts which generate/augment More-Alienation than they generate/augment: Reconciliation, Cooperation, Collaboration, Coordination, Compassion, Creativity, Consensuses, Communications, Dialogues, Honesty, Listening, Healing, Health-Care, etc. 5. Ways of Maintaining Healthy Essential Kinds-of-Balance as regards to the following kinds of realities that are relevant to our Civilization's SUSTAINABILITY a. Postures in regards to our: Ideological, Spiritual, Objective, Reflexive, Economic, God-Talk and Religious LIVES with each other. b. Economic-Lives in facilitating the meeting of the most basic-and-healthy needs of all members of the Crew-of-Space-Ship-Earth. c. The irreversible consumption of coveted-pure-material-resources which are accessible to greedy-domineering-people. d. Exponential-Growth-Patterns within the NON-EXPANDABLE-VOLUME of Space-Ship-Earth. e. Different kinds of healthy and unhealthy "Self-Confidence". f. Egocentric Ideologies and Communities that are Isolated/Alienated from each other. g. Concentrations of Wealth, Powers, Influence, Technologies, Technocrats, Militants, Domineering-Bullies, Mobbing-Mobsters, Militants, Destructive-Weapons, etc. 6. The concentrating of all glogal-decision making powers into the hands of about One-Percent of the wealthest mortals in a GLOBAL-PLUTOCRACY. On Nobrmnrt 12, 2010 a search of the World-Wide-Web for the word-pair "Global Plutocracy" yielded 138,000 "hits". ============================================================================================================================================================================================== Be-Together within Shalom's Sanctuaries Discerning through Open-and-Honest-Dialogues What-IS and What-is-Not ESSENTIAL-TO-CIVILITY-AND-TRUE-CIVILIZATIONS!
