None of us know all the potentialities that slumber in the spirit of the population, or all the ways in which that population can surprise us when there is the right interplay of events

These words of Vaclav Havel came to my mind when listening to Bill Moyers’ interview of SANDRA STEINGRABER.

I am fighting to get positive potentialities slumber from the spirit of the population. I must admit that hearing a story like the one Sandra explains in this interview  raises my fear that other, very nasty “potentialities” can lead to unimaginably dramatic consequences.

When will Humanity raise to a new level of consciousness from where it can oversee the consequences and correct the path away from the ever increasing Kafkaian “Institutional/Technological Lock-in” we have imprisoned ourselves into.

About charlesvanderhaegen

I am a grandfather of an immensely inspiring family, thanks to the most incredible wife. To satisfy my family's needs, I was for 30 years business entrepreneur, roller coasting between success and failure. 14 years ago I was forced to stop and reflect. I dug into theory and discovered the World out there, that my involvement in Business had kept hidden to me. I feared that I will not escape remaining amidst my trans-disciplinary quest forever, bouncing back and forth from action to theory, always puzzled by Europe's apparent incapacity to free itself from its Institutional/Technological Lock-ins. My horizon opened up when Gunter Pauly, my intimate friend of 35 years, asked me to join him and take charge ZERI's development in Europe.
