CMP (Canadian Mind Products)’s purpose is to stand up for the rights of plants and animals. Animals also includes cetacea, humans, gay people, atheists, war victims and invertebrates. CMP attempts to inculcate planetary consciousness — concern for the planet as a whole. A subgoal is to teach people to use computers effectively, particularly with the Java computer language.

Religious Strategy

If you want to promote your religion there are basically two strategies:

  1. theocracy (winner take all).
  2. separation of church and state (Others cannot impose their religion on you and in return you cannot impose your religion on them).

If you are the biggest religion, theocracy looks best. There are two catches.

  1. Things might change and then others can even outlaw your religion and force you to accept some other.
  2. The other catch is the strife gets so vigorous it leads to murder and war. That is why the founding fathers decided separation of church and state was the best approach to a religious plurality like the USA to ensure religious peace.

Consider the advantage of separation of church and state in the future. The Mormons and Muslims are growing considerably faster than anyone else. What happens if they grow to become the majority? What happens to you without the protection of separation of church and state. They will give their religion special privilege. They will insist on their religions being honoured on state occasions. They will insist on their religious myths being taught as science in schools. They will treat your religion with contempt as if it were some fringe cult.

Right to Make Money Trumps Everything

We place such a high value on our legal right to make money, to make a profit, that we are basically willing to destroy the planet and destroy our civilisation as we know it in order to let them make their money.

~ Mark Sundeen (born:1970 age:45) author of The Man Who Quit Money

Amen! It is as though the pipeline companies think they have some inherent right to place pipelines wherever they please and if land contains minerals, there is no other possibility but to mine it and leave the mess for others to clean up over the coming millennia. The right to a profit trumps every other consideration.

Weather Gambling

There is a booming trade in weather futures allowing companies and banks to gamble on changes in the weather as if deadly disasters were a game on a Las Vegas craps table (between 2005 and 2006 the weather derivatives market jumped nearly fivefold from $9.7 billion to $48.2 billion.)

~ Naomi Klein (born:1970-05-08 age:45) This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate
