Quote of the Day – 11/26/2016


Conventional armies are organized, trained, and equipped to control territory. Since terrorist networks are everywhere and nowhere, the control of territory is not at issue. Responding to terrorist attacks with conventional military force can take a devastating toll in lives and property, but as a response to terrorism, it is actively counterproductive. The only way to defeat terrorism is to eliminate the conditions that motivate it. – @dkorten David C. Korten; The Great Turning, From Empire to Earth Community

The abundance of life depends on its ability to both share and conserve energy and matter, and to freely share information in order to grow the potential of the whole. Unrestrained growth based on competitive expropriation is the ideology of cancer cells and alien species. – @dkorten David C. Korten; The Great Turning, From Empire to Earth Community
