Failsafe by Ian Prattis

Book Description

"Just what have we done with the garden bequeathed to us? From outer space our beautiful blue planet has no divisions, pandemics or degradation. On the ground the same blue planet is torn asunder by violence, greed and reckless disregard for planetary care. Can we fix the planet? This is the wrong question...We remain ignorant to the consequences of the fact that everything interconnects. The right question is can we fix ourselves? Can we change the mindset that has created the global ecological emergency? We must embark on a different kind of human journey different to the crazed ego, greed and power traits that characterise our collective and presently mindless sojourn. We are neglectful of the fact that we depend on this tiny planet for everything. I give the reader a promise: This slim volume provides understanding, issues a call for the adventure of changing the existing world order by arriving at a deep understanding of what needs to be done in terms of changing our minds. Then I provide guidelines for action." -- from the author.
