What We Can Do About It
It has become obvious to me that it is unlikely that the solution to humankind’s systemic condition will come from the top down. That is, from those in positions of power and control, and from adults overall, because most have become conceptually imprisoned by entrenched institutions. I believe our best chance of surviving as a species and fulfilling our best possibilities will come primarily from the bottom up. That is, from those individuals still in school and from young adults not in school, who are still curious and interested in defining ideal conditions and a viable future for humankind.
With the preceding observations and challenges in mind, I came to this conclusion. If we are to do better than those who came before us and fulfill our best possibilities, as individuals and collectively, we must add to systems of education processes dedicated to enlightening us to become (a) comprehensive, critical thinking, self-directed individuals, (b) free of illusions, prejudices, self-limiting ideologies, and other forms of conceptual imprisonment, and (c) oriented in a manner that is coherent, moral and universal. To show how this can be accomplished. I developed three illuminating processes/courses: Life Mapping, Social Mapping, and MetaVisioning. I believe these courses can be instrumental in equipping students and adults for an increasingly complex, global world.
