Our Crises-Ridden Planet

Climate change. Refugees. Hunger. Migrants. Unemployment. Environmental disaster. Terrorism

As the World Thinks, So is Its State of Affairs. QUESTION: Is It Satisfactory?

At the root of our chaos and life-threatening difficulties the world is experiencing lies a fundamental misconception of human nature: of who we really are and why we live — a misconception that needs to be set right, if humankind is to thrive and flourish into the infinite future.

World's Underlying Problem:

CREATIVITY CRISIS

Contrary to popular belief and conventional wisdom, the dreadful situation the world is in is not “economic,” “social,” “political,” or “environmental” crises, per se. Our difficulties are not separate crises, either. Certainly, they are not due to “human depravity,” or to the so-called “human propensity to evil.”   


Analysis and synthesis of the insights that are brought together in Creativity: Revealing the Truth about Human Nature conclusively identify our present predicament as, fundamentally, a creativity crisis.

  • This is the inability of the vast majority of people to reach their full potential — inability to recognize, to develop, and to engage one's natural abilities in meaningful and beneficial functions. Resultantly, widespread sense of futility (meaninglessness), of which many psychological, social, economic, and political crises are the symptoms, or facets.

Questions for Concerned Planetary Citizens

A dreadful and unprecedented combination of old and new problems portend the collapse of civilization and threaten the future of the Planet, unless appropriate solutions are found, and within sufficient time. Erich Fromm's gloomy observation signifies the dread and apprehension. Fromm's words:

  • "This time, mankind is at one crossroad where the wrong step could be the last step."  

Fromm's observation corroborates the horror that other global analysts variously portray as: 

  • "Apocalypse" 
  • "imminent collapse of civilization"
  • "disintegration of society" 
  • "impending convulsion and chaos" 
  • "breakdown of our cultural patterns" 
  • and so on.

In and of themselves, the modern crises are deeply troubling. What is even more troubling is the growing ineffectiveness of traditional solution approaches; hence, the twin questions:

  • Are the modern crises and the global predicament unsolved because they are too difficult to solve?
         
  • Or, could it be that we've been tackling the wrong problems?

Critical Actions for Solving the Global Creativity Crisis

To the extent that the foregoing conclusion is valid, resolving the modern crises and building the viable and sustainable global future that everyone wishes to see require us to:   

  • Correct the widely accepted, but inadequate and misleading representations of human nature — misconceptions that, clearly, are at the root of many of the difficulties the world is experiencing.   

    In other words: 
  • Set right our understanding of who we really are and why we live. Specifically and most importantly, recognize our inherently and primarily creative essence which is in perpetual search for actualization and fulfillment.

 


  • Give considerable attention to inner development of people as ethically, morally, socially, and ecologically responsible beings: So that everyone recognizes his/her own special abilities — his/her own creativity — as a global asset, rather than a personal competitive advantage.

 


The book, CREATIVITY: Revealing the Truth about Human Nature, and its global civic creativity campaign offshoot, Time to Rethink Everything: So that Mankind May Thrive and Flourish into the Infinite Future, provide the logical and necessary starting point for the vitally important and urgently needed shift in thinking and actions:
