I’m reading Popular Resistance’s newsletter

I’m not (yet?) in the streets.
I remain very watchful though, and I sign petitions.
I try to work with and for everyone, from whatever side, with whatever worldview.
I am indeed fundamentally convinced that it is only by listening and responding to the various ways of looking at situations, opportunities, problems and solutions that we can move forward as Human Societies in an evolutionary Living World.

I support people who develop new possibilities: working from new paradigms (as Thomas Kuhn would say).
I support them because they are so often ignored, or ridiculed, or harshly opposed or even mistreated. The more they are, the more I believe they have some truth and will end up getting recognition: why otherwise oppose them?

I do believe however that in the end it is DOING that counts.
Doing things that are GOOD for everyone, society, nature, planet, life.

Doing things that resist ethical examination, that causes no harm, that charts a new course, that alters and dissolves the one we are following, in particular the Institutional/Technological Lock-Ins in which, at every level of our societies, we’ve trapped and enslaved ourselves into.

I deeply believe that a new way of living together on this earth is possible, that provides every and all human beings the basic needs to allow them to live a meaningful, dignified life and to auto-determine and develop it freely and autonomously.
I believe everyone on this earth can flourish and elevate her/himself to his/her highest potential.
I believe this is possible wherever you live, using only what is locally available, reconnecting with the local, historical, “material culture”.
I believe however this is only possible if we espouse and live according to a fundamentally new way of perceiving, thinking and acting.

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. 17 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. I am now fully engaged alongside Gunter Pauli in the http://www.zeri.org and the @myblueeconomy Networks as CEO of ZERI.EU vzw (Non for Profit association)
