" In the 1980s capitalism triumphed over communism. In the 1990s it triumphed over democracy. "-David Korten

Whether you are a believer of peak oil, global warming, new world order and a whole host of other dividing issues, it remains constant that a majority of people believe that:

- Big business has too much power.
- As a society, the US is focused on the wrong priorities.
- We want to give greater priority for children, family, communities and our natural environment.

We want...
- A world that puts people ahead of profits.
- Spiritual values ahead of financial values.
- International cooperation ahead of international domination.

Author David Korten speaks about these issues and others at the Veterans For Peace convention in Seattle , Washington about these topics and others.

The Great Turning

From the cover...The Great Turning is a work of amazing scope and depth. This is a wise and much needed book that shows we can create cultures where our enormous human capacities for joy, caring, and cooperation are realized.
~Riane Eisler, author of The Chalice and the Blade

We live in a world where the politics of our ancestors
take precedence over the priorities of our children.

What we need now are not the frail ideals of the past,
but more hopeful dreams, and less painful memories.

Children are our dancing dreams.

Now is the time to breath chaos into the humdrum of tired cadences,
To waltz past the toil of decadent march,

"Let loose your dwellers,
you habitats of orphaned imaginations."

We are the ones we've have been waiting for...
