Is the widening gap between rich and poor
in America and the widening chasm between rich
and poor globally threatening to derail, if not in
a monumental blood bath of terrorism, end human evolution?
Are the rich driven only by Darwinian
selfishness? Are they driven solely by the supposedly Darwinian
doctrine of survival of the fittest? Do they have
no regard for the poor?
Or in fact has progressive philanthropy
in keeping with what Darwin really believed
been the vital driver for human evolution century after
First row: Haym Solomon. Andrew Carnegie.
Julius Rosenwald. George Soros. Ted Turner.
Second row: Sophia Smith. Margaret Sage. Ellen Scripps.
Harriet Bullitt. Peg Yorkin.
As we enter a time when the future for America
and the world is increasingly threatened by the bloody drive
of survival of the fittest and the PseudoDarwinian
celebration of selfishness, the stealthy politics of renegade
wealth, and the age old rise once again of the few who would
rule the many, these are becoming critical questions not only
for Americans but for the rest of the world.
This section will provide answers in terms of
the great American heritage of the push for greater freedom
and equality and the full Darwinian theory of the exact
opposite of what we have been told that is, the
long lost completing half for Darwins theory.
Great Adventure and Darwins
vs. Regressive Money
This is the vital differentiation all too seldom
made progressive. That is, out of ones
wealth or meager pocket or purse progressive
money is the giving that clearly advances human evolution,
rather than only maintains the status quo, as is the custom
for many wealthy givers.
Or that pretty much does nothing for anyone
else outside ones own family, as is still the case for
most of us.
Or the giving that is now of urgent concern
with what could be the most crucial election in American as
well as world history coming up. This is the hidden juggernaut
of the huge fortunes now behind-scenes being coordinated to
drive us backward in evolution as in the cases of the
Olin, Bradley, Coors, Scaife, and other foundations well
look at in the forthcoming website section A Brief History
of Progressive Philanthropy in America.
No mistake about it: The incredible wealth
of regressive donors and foundations . . . linked
to the billions and blind greed of irresponsible corporations
. . . linked to the hate thy neighbor
drive for power of rightwing religion . . . with
the bought and paid for frontal drive of the cozening and
bullying of politicians at the highest levels of the American
government . . . is now being marshaled for the
most fierce assault yet on the freedom and equality that
Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt, Elizabeth Cady Stanton,
Martin Luther King, and millions of the rest of us have
fought for over the 200 years of American evolution.
The research reported on this site in The
Great Adventure and The
General Evolution Research Group as well as of
hundreds of other scientists and activists today who, for
example, comprise the Nobel laureate-loaded Union of Concerned
Scientists quite clearly reveals that our species has
reached a make-or-break juncture not merely in our history,
but in our evolution.
Of rapidly mounting concern is the fact that
we have reached this pivotal point in space and time with
the great dead weight of us unaware of what is happening to
us, or how and why and where we are being driven in our trance.
We are entranced by fear, by greed, and by ignorance. The
forthcoming reconstruction in our website section Darwins
Unfolding Revolution of what Darwin really believed reveals
who we really are and can become. The progressive money of
thousands becoming millions of us in support of vision and
decision can get us there. This website is being built to
try to help break the spell and arm those of us who deeply
and passionately care for the better world and the better
future for a heroic and fateful task.
