Description

The author, starting from the idea of the ongoing transition from the dying industrial society to the new but still undefined society, explains in the first part the severe international crisis by highlighting the consequences of unregulated globalization.
He then introduces the mechanisms of great speculation, the dominance of “Finance-capitalism”, the political responsibilities.
He also emphasizes the need to create real democratic and functional supranational European and global bodies able to deal with the huge global emergencies which affect mankind: from the unfair distribution of wealth to the super power of the financial elites, from the expected ecosystem collapse to the “demographic bomb”, from the absurd, dangerous and expensive arms race to the new technologies, up to the constant violations of fundamental rights.
He therefore introduces the requests of the honest and outraged citizens, who are asked to mobilize for a “GLOBAL PEACEFUL REVOLUTION” (GANDHIAN) in order to reach a more human and fair society.
In the second part, the author introduces a courageous project that includes a series of concrete initiatives for building the NEW HUMANISM, and invites everyone to take part in the SHOCKWAVE that will lead to the NEW RENAISSANCE.
This target cannot be delayed anymore!
The scientists’ alarm cry is in fact unanimous: the planet is on the brink and we must act before the middle of this century to avoid its collapse. What can we do? Some possible “WAYS OUT TO THE EMERGENCIES” are proposed: but we must act, all and from now, together with the civil society, to build a new human-centric and bio-centric civilization based on a “New Democratic Institutional Architecture” and on a “New International Ethical Economy”.
Everyone is asked to join the “MANIFESTO OF GLOBAL PEACEFUL REVOLUTION FOR A NEW HUMANISM” by participating to the initiatives on the website www.unipax.org.
