The Crisis of Civilization

"If a problem can't be solved, enlarge it." – Dwight Eisenhower

Climate Change, deforestation, Peak Oil, economic recession, the gulf between the rich & poor, depleting fisheries, top soil erosion, hunger, war, terrorism, foreclosure, sickness, rising tuition, overpopulation, bankruptcy, depression, spiraling debt...

When one tries to take in the vast array of individual issues that we now face us it is no surprise we are often left feeling utterly overwhelmed and powerless. To resolve so many issues seems almost an impossibility – especially considering the short timeline that is required of us to do so to avert disaster – but just perhaps could these issues be merely symptoms of a deeper more simple set of circumstances that if understood might open to us the key insights to tackle all of these issues simultaneously? Could our problems today be a result of our own failure to see ourselves, our communities, nations, institutions as interlocking parts of a synergistic whole?

This next documentary with Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed explores these questions and offers up some amazing insights into the divided, limited and by consequence dangerous manner in which much of the world community currently operates within.

Let's take a step outside of the box...
