Come The Revolution….
As some of you know from reading past posts, I have on occasion gone out on a limb and I have claimed that we are, globally, in a “pre-revolutionary situation”. That is to say, I have asserted that the preconditions for a world revolution are present, and that the core principle or ruling idea of this world revolution, following the suggestion of Rosenstock-Huessy, will be “health”.
So, I am delighted to discover that an ex-CIA analyst agrees with me. Well… not me specifically, but agrees in terms of sensing the presence and the pressure of the same factors and conditions.
The former analyst’s name is Robert David Steele, and he was interviewed for The Guardian by Nafeez Ahmed (“The open source revolution is coming and it will conquer the 1% – ex CIA spy”). Although it’s lengthy, I recommend it. Mr. Steele has apparently even published a couple of books on his thesis.
You may notice some familiar themes, particularly those of holism and integralism; the interplay of truth, trust, and truce; the unsustainability of the present order of things, etc. It’s probably worthwhile to print it out and refer to it occasionally to see how his views measure up to the real trends over the next few years.
