The Establishment is not listening to you
Have you stopped listening to them?
You are not alone
More people than ever are protesting around the world. Surveys show a decrease in support for the present form of democracy. People perceive power and the current unsatisfactory state of affairs in a new light and demands for another kind of democracy are being heard.
The contract between citizens and the establishment is broken. We seem to be facing a paradigm shift where the western ideals are losing support and people are searching for different values. The question is - where are we heading?
Do we choose a new world culture in which surveillance by state powers is prioritized before peoples' integrity, where a deeper meaning of life and long-sighted political visions are replaced by a work-salary-consumption-machinery? Or have we had enough and are now ready to make a stand against this "system".
Colliding Worlds summarizes and structures the old world order, informs about the latest developments and opens up a new way of thinking about an alternative kind of world, describing a new breed of activist, free of the establishment, leaving the old ideologies behind.
Mats Sederholm and Linda Bjuvgård are writers, speakers and chroniclers. They are system critics who, for the past 20 years, have been analyzing the power structures and standards of the West - their driving force a strong belief in humanity and in a kinder society.

“The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum....”
This is where the world currently is … there is very little discussion of any subjects which might seriously threaten anything truly important to the current powers that be. Well, Colliding Worlds hits the ball out of the park in that respect. The only degree to which they play to existing paradigms, is in the acknowledgment they exist, in order to further the ensuing analysis and discussion well outside those boundaries. Invariably those lazy embedded cultural and societal “norms” are then deservedly eviscerated in a blaze of original and engaging thought/discussion about how they came to be, and why they patently do not serve the vast majority of humanity.
The next quote is from Einstein. “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
The authors of Colliding Worlds seem to have taken this one to heart, and after journeying with them as they dissect one outmoded and useless power/financial/economic system after another … it becomes apparent that humanity is going to have to start thinking VERY differently, if we are to survive at all, let alone thrive in the years to come. It is exactly the kind of critical thinking and fearless examination we see taking place in the pages of this book … of which I think Einstein would probably be proud.
The third quote is from Bucky Fuller. "You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
Here is where Colliding Worlds acknowledges a massive shift in human consciousness and creativity is underway, and that it is combinations of independent critical thought, individual action, and collaboration between awakened individuals (often made possible by the internet) … which can drive forward radical societal change faster than we might ever have thought possible. Examples of this kind of creative “freeing” of humanity from “default infrastructure” are currencies like Bitcoin and technologies like Blockchain. New models such as these force change by making existing (power-structure-serving) paradigms obsolete.
My final quote is from Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. "A mind that is stretched by new experiences ... can never go back to its old dimensions."
Every time we make advances down exciting new roads, our minds become ablaze with what we’ve accomplished. And then we set our minds to the next thing. Each time we make these steps, our minds expand to accommodate the wonder of what has been dreamed, seen or achieved. And we can never go back. We cannot “un-know” what we know to be true through our own experience. And once we begin to see these incredible changes taking place in our world, almost overnight in many cases, our minds continue to expand, and we are encouraged to dream even bigger.
Along with the book “Deep Green Resistance: Strategy to Save the Planet” by the organization of the same name, I would have to put Colliding Worlds up there as one of the most essential books I have read in the last decade. The time for people to read this book is NOW. If I could wave a magic wand and instantly get this material into high-school curricula worldwide … get this revolutionary thinking into the minds of our bright young things … make no mistake, it would be done.
Buy it, read it, send it as a gift to young people you know. In this cynical, desperate, and rapidly deteriorating world, Colliding Worlds is full of that thing we humans now need more than ever. Hope.
There is a profound difference between intelligence and consciousness. Intelligence is ruled by ego and enslaved by self-interest. Consciousness is the ability to recognize truth by drawing from the innate wisdom that resides from within. As Albert Einstein brilliantly stated: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”
If humanity is to avoid a nearly inevitable collision with self-destruction, we must make a conscious effort to “tune-in” to our essential wisdom; to question the messages we receive from the media and the rulers of the world; and to boldly blaze a new trail that is firmly based upon the truth that can only come from within.
Fear is a state of mind. We can either acquiesce or we can become champions of freedom and independent thought. “Colliding Worlds” recognizes that something has changed, that new thought is gaining momentum.
It has been said that recognition is the first law of learning. Can we make the leap from intellectual enslavement to conscious emancipation? The choice is ours. “Colliding Worlds” provides a glimpse into the greatest evolutionary leap that mankind can make. Are you ready to be the change you wish to see?
