Critical Thinking at the Free University

6 minute extract discussing Truth during the Critical Thinking session

Astrotheology appears to underpin not just religion but also law and "government" of the planet. This is a huge topic and this is an introduction to some concepts: the circularity of time and the cycles of the creator, preserver and destroyer: Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva.

Critical Thinking's recently published paper (link below) is the product of a process which is more significant than our analysis, which is nonetheless powerful in its own right.http://iei.kau.edu.sa/Files/121/Files/153872_30-02-09-Clive-3.pdf

Citizens Dividend Cocktail and discussion about sharing the wealth of the planet in the form of a Citizens Dividend. Brief presentations on the Commons, Usury, Arts and Culture in the context of a Citizens Dividend will be followed by discussion, in the round, of the three presentations. People often refer to Basic Income; the House of Commons discussion referred to an amount of £70 per week per adult - this is hardly the means to life. A Citizens Dividend from the wealth of the planet could provide the means to shelter, clothe and feed everyone, debt free without increasing income, sales or employment taxes; indeed they could even be reduced.

A debate in the City in which Critical Thinking's research and analysis challenged economic orthodoxy and warned of impending economic meltdown.

The motion before the audience of some 75 wealth managers and financial services professionals was:

“This house believes that: the economy no longer serves the interests of the majority and is heading for collapse.

This house also believes that: the cause is structural and so fiscal and monetary levers are insufficient to counter the threat to wealth and prosperity.”

Critical Thinking is a non-hierarchical, apolitical, collaborative research and education project, started in 2012, that analyses the current political economy to identify fundamental flaws and potential levers for change. The project aims to understand the historical context of issues from different perspectives and explore their current and future impacts on social cohesion, inequality, individual liberty and civilization as we know it. http://freecriticalthinking.org
