Europeans' visions of our future: Ervin Laszlo

‘We always talk about democracy, but we don’t practice it’ . These words are both a warning and an invitation, writes Jeannet Weurman, New Europeans International.

The warning is stark. The many crises that are destabilizing our world will get worse and others will follow – viruses, aggressive political leaders, and the utter devastation of our ecology.

The invitation is magnificent. Crisis does not only bring danger, but also opportunity.  Our unstable world is at a critical point of change. Things can shift up or down; we can move to a better future or to an accelerated decline.
