Background and Mission
Equilibrium Institute is developing products to sustain activities and reinforce efforts to identify, reduce and prevent corruption by reinforcing optimal human development and encouraging mutual reliance for the advancement of life. Please survey my biographical statement at http://www.specialagenttraining.cfsites.org
From the Dir. Rob Jackson
Irresponsible human behaviors and a lack of care and awareness contributes to many social problems. Incentives, jobs, and knowledge, provide opportunities for better decision making, which I argue are central to human advancement and optimal development. The mounting population trends and predicted environmental challenges require intelligent responses. In contrast, the West is reaching finite limits on non-renewable resources. Thus, we stand at a pivotable moment in human history. Scarcity and conflict abounds, but an opportunity to increase peace through systematic reforms can be achieved if the public can be properly nurtured or convinced so that corresponding pressure is placed on the leadership which appears in need of being either better supported or better informed. A new definition of success must emerge. One where harmony- not hapiness is the basis. This basic shift away from self-serving , hoarding, selfish acts motivated in the pursuit of hapiness to a socially supported system that ackowledges interdependence and sharing is essential to making progress in western civilization and to address alarming trends of decay or increased entropy.
In some cases we can prevent damages, in others we can minimize damages. Likewise, the application of intelligence may create opportunities and free up distribution of resources to better maintain a balance. Often this can be achieved simply by bringing information across disciplines or arenas to apply them where needed. For example, reportedly, states possessed agents that could help cool the fuel rods in the recent tsunami Nuclear disaster in Japan but this knowledge was not shared quickly and a disaster was not averted which potentially may have been if infastructure for sharing was in place. Another example, toxins placed on food through fertilizers and pesticides developed originally by scientists hired by Hitler now hinder healthy genetic transference in the replication process of heredity causing unwanted mutations to occur. Consumers have some options, but many stand under-informed. Spike is a drug killing a lot of people and it is reportedly being imported from China into the U.S. Russian pesticides are also reportedly used, but many of the worst chemicals in the world are made right here in the U.S. Even some of the organic options are not as clean as consumers like to think due to the extent soils and water supplies are being contaminated. I also did an analysis earlier concerning Department of Corrections recidivism figures and found the US greatly behind in the ranking in contrast with other countries pointing to correctable problems in our nations efforts to rehabilitate those convicted of crimes. I cite these points well in my book and defend my sometimes unpopular criticisms and opinions, but a long-term analysis of my work shows it has impacted many leaders positions on issues already and will continue to impact populations the more refined and broadly distributed the work will become in the future. That however is not enough, the people must act together to build the world we want- not only point to problems and hold people accountable- which rarely happens.
Funding will allow several essays and shorter articles to come to light covering a range of issues. More importantly, it will enable me to produce products like TV public service announcements wherein I present my best questions for the leadership and intelligence communities globally, which will reach many more people than print matter alone.
Products like shirts, Music CD’s, which I will produce in cooperation with artists from my community will help us reach the goal to serve several millions more people .
To date we have reached over a million people- (200K) via web services and a million via radio announcements and TV appearances. Academic works shared build on research of scholars in diverse fields and my intention to operate one small sub-project as a collective with revised Roberts Rules of Order distributes the power of the group in an experimental way that will have measurable results. The process may prove to strengthen democracy by protecting the fair distribution of power in elections and decision making processes.
Funding will also help complete art series, live events and proposed community projects.
The impacts of projects include;
- reported increases in quality of life
- better team building and increased decision making skills
- Increased visits to our websites which currently stand at 2,000 a month
- new products available for free and or at reduced costs to the public
- Increased traffic is producing increased participation for ongoing community based activities
- our programs promote greater democratic ethics and exit interviews show people are learning
- Some projects create jobs and some create volunteer opportunities
- past policy impacts on policy makers and future programs are designed to reinforce legislative revisions or new laws designed to curb corruption
Delivering greater intelligence is a stimulus for motivating productive human behavior. Contingency theory overall aims to explain and produce or maintain (ECO-BIO-PSYCHO-SOCIAL) balance as a way of life. By replacing the emphasis of modern constructs of individualism and fleeting happiness with the pursuit of harmony, a recognition for the value of relationships may decrease the odds that corruption will be permitted, or left unaddressed.
In terms of the populations reached, we anticipate reaching 7 million people (a 700 percent growth rate) at the over a five year period.
