I started this non-profit to use any and all mediums to educate people about real wealth and real culture. I want people to see that real wealth is within the Earth and its resources and that if this is treated with respect a symbiotic relationship of balance and plenty will result.
There seems to be a mythology that there is a great deal of bureaucracy and money involved in producing the changes that we wish to see in the World, this is usually the reason people resign their ideas before they even had a chance to live. I believe if enough people and energy is brought together, that anything is conquerable, even an old and stubborn bureaucratic system.”
