If a Red Giant star could dream what it wanted its dust to become after it died, I can imagine a particularly ambitious one wanting to become the kind of world that Tom Atlee has envisioned here, and the kind of inspired, passionate, educated world-changers he imagines getting together to create that world. I hope a lot of people decide to get Great Story activism like this rolling so we prove to good ol' natural selection that we are homo sapiens (wise people) for real.

—Connie Barlow, science writer and author of Green Space, Green Time

Prefatory material


The copyright licensing information is incorrect; I offer more freedom than indicated in the printed book (the PDF has been corrected). See Copying for the correct information.


In the printed book there is no description of the image on the back cover (lower left).  It is the co-intelligence symbol, described on http://co-intelligence.org/CIsymbol.html.


Page xiv


The word "I" should be added at the beginning of the second sentence of the paragraph beginning "I could feel my world shifting."


Page 44


The phrase "The remaining 800 hundreds marchers" should read "The remaining 400 marchers".

Dear Ms. Breland:This is an excellent westibe. I am running for Justice Court Judge, and this is the only issue anyone is asking me about. I think that Prop 26 is an unconscionable cynical ploy to manipulate Mississippi into paying the costs of the litigation that will take years on the road to the US Supreme Court. Of course, if the state loses the case (which even Liberty Counsel thinks is highly likely) the state would end up footing the costs of the challenge against the law, per 42 USC 1988, which allows prevailing civil rights litigants to recover their attorney's fees and costs from the losing parties. So, perversely, MS would end up funding ACLU and Planned Parenthood, costing the state millions of dollars in the meantime.
