N2K has launched a new section called KNOW THYSELF. Here we will explore varied experiences on journeys to self-awareness, self-realization and sexual identity with an eye to taking responsibility for one's ecosystem of thought. In our first episode, we discuss Stephan McGuire's very personal journey within the Jehovah's Witnesses, how he discovered the strength to leave what he now deems a cult, and how he draws parallels to what he sees as similar thought control patterns throughout our societies. Watch, then please join in the conversations with Stephan on our discussion boards, and even take action helping others negotiate and leave what are called "high-control groups." Given the assault on the US Capitol, this discussion is very much resonant.
Christopher Htet Ye Aung gives N2K our first Witness account from Myanmar. Having undergone a military coup in February 1, 2021, the people of Myanmar are starting to protest. N2K will check in with Chris to see how the country is faring and if they can restore democracy.
To usher in the New Year, and to leave 2020 behind, we thought it would be a good idea to envision what a brand new governing document would look like – one that reflects the progressive values that we’re all working towards. To that end, we’re proposing to “crowdsource” a new U.S. Constitution, and we’ve drafted a new Preamble and Bill of Rights to get us started. That draft Bill of Rights would recognize the rights of nature, local democratic authority in our cities, towns and counties to advance local laws towards clean air and clean water, and would eliminate the electoral college. Years in the making, the draft is intended as a starting point, to be built brick by brick by those most invested in changing the Constitution so that it supports the paradigm-shift that we need to make as a nation.
Hopi have lived in the canyonlands and the southwestern United States for millennia. As such, their perspective is grounded in long-time and in a deep observation of humanity. This discussion, with Thomas Banyacya, Jr. and Leila Conners and Harun Mehmedinovic of Tree Media was conducted on the rim of Canyon de Chelly.
What if, we, as a global community, don't wait for the politicians, the banks, investors, the larger corporations, who, if they DID step in to solve this crisis, it would be great; but, what if, we just get about the business and solve this problem ourselves, together. We can, as a global community help reverse climate disruption by drawing down excess carbon in the atmosphere. To do so, and as a start, we have chosen projects that will plant TREES, create BIOCHAR, plant KELP FORESTS and install DIRECT AIR CAPTURE MACHINES that will turn carbon into stone. Join us!
