Levels of literacy and education and freedom are steadily growing everywhere. The world has become dramatically more peaceful since 1992, with wars, coup d’etats, and acts of genocide having declined by 40 percent. Check out the sites listed here.

Cast Your Lot With Those Who Imagine Redemption

2012: Time for a Change is a film presenting an alternate view of the numinous transformations ahead.
