Human beings have a history of cruelty, viciousness and destruction.
The world we have created is fuelled by aggression, violence, selfishness and greed. It is a world of exploitation, war and power largely dominated by psychologically damaged males.
It is my belief that the bullying environment we bring our children up in contributes to this.
If human beings, if nature, has a future we have to become civilised; we have to learn to live together in harmony and peace; we have to look at the bigger picture and put things right on the small stage. Schools are instrumental in changing the world. Without an education system based on love, compassion, empathy, tolerance and the development of the whole child I really believe we have no future on this planet. In thirty years time 7 billion of us will become 14 billion, nature will be consumed and we will then destroy each other with our own hatred as we compete for ever dwindling resources.
There is an alternative.
I believe that enlightened education is the only answer.
