NEXT> The Principles - by Patrick Moore

Each day, there is more evidence I find that suggests that the world's sensibility is changing in the face of the multiple crises that humanity faces. Finally, blame and responsibility can't be shifted or shipped & packed to the lesser/more privileged. It is time that individuals admit to individual responsibility - regardless of their time, region, situation.

This, I believe, is a strong movement that will shape the way global society develops in the next few years.

Consider a mainstream Yahoo! article postulating these "principles", described by Patrick Moore through his project, The Principles.

  1. Surrender
  2. Hope
  3. Faith
  4. Responsibility
  5. Honesty
  6. Reflection
  7. Humility
  8. Willingness
  9. Forgiveness
  10. Perseverance
  11. Spiritual Seeking
  12. Service
Apparantly, a list of taboo words - words that suggested a subservient state of mind. But now, a good body of research proves the healthand social benefits of these concepts which we thought had gone out of fashion, nay, out of the code of human society forever.
