Beyond Reform

A recent message from Richard K. Moore prompted me to write the following:
I fully agree with you that reform is not possible.
If metamorphosis is an apt analogy for the evolution of civilization, then it appears that we are nearing the end of the caterpillar stage.
IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO REFORM THE CATERPILLAR’S BEHAVIOR.
We can only transcend it.
We who consider ourselves to be among the “cultural creatives” are the “imaginal cells” that need to communicate, organize, collaborate, and replicate – devising and implementing new structures that foster “butterfly” behaviors that will realize social justice, economic equity, liberty, and ecological restoration.
My little bit of that relates to exchange and finance (money, banking, saving and investment). Particularly pertinent to this thread is a slide show presentation I’ve given a few times, called Money, Power, Democracy and War, which has just been put up as a movie at http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8470975295384198758&hl=en.
