Help Protect Yourself & Your World — with Highest Civic Ideals For Our Humanity!
Let's face reality together. Our world is in trouble, everyone is at risk, and we are in a race with time. Climate Change is happening. Wars are raging, and events could easily spin out of control. Nuclear Winter is a real, and 100% unacceptable possibility. Cyber mischief and unethical behavior, even violence are everywhere. And many people are not even happy with their own personal relationships. Given this complex predicament, Cooperative Universal Values Education will help a lot. In fact, it is essential!
The themes that STAR ALLIANCE has created over the years — including Good Will Values Education for All, and Star Citizenships™ according to all our Highest Civic Ideals™ — are social innovations that will help bring humanity together with surprising speed — ONCE they are widely adopted. Resources are needed, and acutely so.
By supporting timeless, positive, universal values with volunteer time, tech skills or financial investments: You, dear readers, can each make not only a difference but a lasting, highly-leveraged one for good — with implications for the whole human race.
How can the original STAR ALLIANCE make such a claim? As we have said elsewhere: Logically. It stands to reason that values, once internalized, influence virtually all behavior. That's what values are, after all: Guides to behavior and choices for each individual decision-maker, and that's everyone! To effect positive change, it makes best sense to focus on improving positive values right at the root of society: individuals everywhere. The STAR ALLIANCE value documents have been carefully crafted to do just that, and they have been impressively endorsed along the way. [Please see the "People" and "About" sections on this site.]
Secondly, we can point to our track record of major, catalytic achievements. The Original STAR ALLIANCE presaged the unexpected end of the Cold War. We began declaring peace ideals in late 1985, before anyone thought such a major turnaround was possible. We collected famous signatures, from 1986 on, and wrote leaders Reagan and Gorbachev before every summit meeting, until suddenly, it was over! During this period, backed by distinguished philanthropist Ms. Jane Newhall of San Francisco, we opened Market Street offices, produced cable access TV and radio shows weekly (from 1987 to 1990), and established the STAR OF PEACE AWARD, which continues today.
In 1996, when mainland China was firing rockets over Taiwan, we wrote a calming, and apparently influential Policy Advisory to the leaders of China, redirecting their attention to investing in electronic and other infrastructures for the future. Within literally days (Please see New York Times reporting from 1996.), positive results manifested at the time, and many have continued, though more needs to be done, all the way around.
In September of 2017, our thoughtful Advisory to the leader of the DPRK (North Korea); also copied to the US President, was followed by a dramatic and quite unexpected, if temporary, warming of relations. The change made everyone safer for a time. Of course our action was not the only factor. As before, we received no direct recognition for our work, but arguably, the public benefit was catalytic and huge. Again: Much more needs to be done. This work, although highly efficient, still needs basic resources.
Meanwhile, enormous financial resources and logistical capacities are being spent on extremely painful conflicts throughout the world. A change is desperately needed to solve these conflicts and redirect these resources and capacities to meeting basic human needs and arresting Climate Change.
If you agree that good will and lasting peace in the Atomic Age is not just a luxury, but a matter of collective survival — your wise support of STAR ALLIANCE is critically needed now.
No support is too small, too large, or too soon! influential advisories to other major leaders await your empowering gift. Monthly donations will be most helpful, too.
You can protect your own interests in a safer, healthier world and feel the great satisfaction of contributing to a critical turning point in all of human history. Please take this intelligent action! Support a growing, vital, personal and collective commitment to lasting peace and happiness via Universal Values — Our Highest Civic Ideals.
