On Razor's Edge

Humans, other creatures, and Earth are living on razor’s edge.

We must change our behavior if we want to avoid early extinction and greater damage to Earth and to build a surviving and thriving future for all.

Over human history, there have been several large and positive changes in human behavior. These changes demonstrate that humans are capable, even more now, to change their behavior sufficient to build and achieve a thriving future for all. Only if humans have the will. 

Available via or free download.


New - Early Extinction or Thriving Future

Important to understand that early extinction, a terrible outcome, need not be our future. Early extinction is our future only if we continue to behave so as to cause this bad future.

We have a choice to make. A much better choice is a surviving and thriving future. Thrive!, building a thriving future, is a way to change our behavior and change our future to a much better surviving and thriving future.

We as people should embrace and live by "A People’s Constitution”
