Swords to Ploughshares, Bombs to Isotopes

Written 4 years ago by my former colleague in assistance to a proposal for a joint US Ukrainian nuclear lab. One of the aims, as you'll see was to promote cooperation between Ukraine and Western countries, for example a recent international conference in Kharkiv.The following statement may be found on the P-CED website."We research and design…See More

"I'm not sure what you mean by "measuring profit in terms of real people." Can you be more explicit? To me capitalism is not about social capital, or natural capital, but money capital. Terry Fowler"

The case for numbers versus the people

"Manipulation of numbers, represented by currency/money, allows writing "new" money as needed. There is no tangible asset, or anchor. There are only numbers, managed by whomever might maneuver into position to do so. Economics came to be based on numbers, rather than real human beings." "On that basis, capitalism trumped people and therefore trumped democracy. Democracy is about people, who since Descartes are considered necessarily real, rather than numbers which are not necessarily real. An…See More

"Yes, we seem to have a lot of congruence. As you say, the ability to deploy networks was not available in the transition to perestroika and when attempting to do it in Tomsk, as you might imagine, local interests put up barriers. One problem is that…"

Terry Hallman: A life lived for others

I would describe myself as an atheist, whereas our founder Terry Hallman was a man whose Christian faith had significant influence on his social activism. I used the past tense because Terry died on 18th August, in his efforts to bring social justice to children abandoned to state care in Eastern Europe.In the end he placed this cause ahead of his own welfare and in this can be considered to have lain down his life, for the vulnerable.When we got together in 2003, he was fasting for economic…See More

"A tribute to P-CED founder Terry Hallman who died two weeks ago in Kharkiv Ukraine, where he'd placed the cause of Ukraine's children abandoned to state care ahead of his health and eventually his life."

Jeff,

 

I goofed.  http://socialbusiness.socialgo.com/ is in fact a social website.  Please consider adding a link to Social Business to our registry.  That way we can introduce our groups to each other.

Welcome Jeff,

Great to see your interest in Transition! Welcome to TRANSITION IN ACTION. I see you've already connected with David Braden and David Eggleton, and a couple of groups.  I've also requested that we friend.

Join the group anytime for discussions and events.  Click on any person's photo to say Hello. Reinforce the good things they are doing. Mention something that particularly interests you. Ask a question. Start a discussion. Let me know if you would like to be an Admin on this page to help build and maintain your group's portfolio. Have fun!

On the local scene, does http://socialbusiness.socialgo.com/ have a Transition-supporting website, or blog, or listserv, or Facebook, or Meetup? If so, it would be spot on for all our members if you would consider including a link to your Social Business in our registry of organizations, localities, companies, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. supporting Transition and Sustainability. Here's the page to create the link. I'll be glad to help launch and build your link. Are you interested?

One more thing. It would be super to see your photo -- click on Choose file -- and then follow the instructions.  Let me know if you need assistance. I'll be delighted to do some photoshopping if needed.

Again, welcome!

Les
