Themes in Michael’ Writing……
A number closely related themes permeate all of Michael’ Writing over the years. Characteristic for all of them is that he tends to be far ahead of his contemporaries in his thinking. Michael’ analyses are always long-term and strategic. Main theme is Spirituality as the foundation of life and the hope of the future, as well as being the inspiration for everything he does.
Another is his passionate interest in the long term evolution of the planet, which he sees as passing through a very critical time today as our civilization deals with problems arising from meeting head-on the limits to physical growth on a finite planet. In his writings, Michael argues that he crux of the current crisis is that, though we are experiencing these limits, we have not yet realized he need to move away from the dominant mechanical worldview that has been successful in the past but, is now destroying the very basis of our existence, namely the environment and our social cohesiveness. We must shift our thinking towards more Life-base & Resource-based, holistic worldview that sees the planet, not as separate competing nations, but as a single living organism, and then find corresponding global solutions that will encompass all and work for everyone for peace and harmony.
A third theme is that the major political leverage point in the current global crisis and conflict is the way we organize international trade. Michael has out forward concrete proposals for changes in the global economic system such that the true ecological and social costs are reflected in product prices and trade rules, changes which will automatically nudge the International community in the direction of becoming a sustainable civilization.
As his fourth theme, he sees the appropriate response to this global crisis at individual level to be shift in lifestyle. This is why he promotes and supports the GOD (Global One Directives) movement. GOD are early models of the way we will all have to eventually- small sustainable communities in the countryside and in the cities, where social, ecological, and spiritual specs meet in a holistic lifestyle.
Michael is currently working on new book, where he predicts the coming of an inevitable growth bubble, which, when it bursts, will be far worse than the Financial crisis for 2007 -2009. After a period of great chaos and pain, a rebuilding will take place based on an emerging paradigm that rejects the current free market, materialistic ideology and promotes a more Life-based and Resource-based economy and political system that protects the environment, diverse cultures and social structures. Michael puts forward a concrete “Breakaway” Initiative for how a small nations can, if they dare to take a global leadership role at this critical time in history by breaking away from the dominant and destructive economic system which is leading most of into disaster : Feasible alternative option would be change to one that is both Sustainable and Just for All
