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!
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 vital social innovations that will help bring humanity together with surprising speed — ONCE they are widely promoted and implemented. Resources are needed, and acutely so.
You, dear readers (including major philanthropists) can make a huge difference. Whether you volunteer time, tech skills, make one financial gift or regular ones — be assured that anything invested in this unique project will be a lasting contribution to the whole human race.
How can the original STAR ALLIANCE make such a claim? First: 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 establishing, reinforcing, and 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 endorsed impressively 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 it was over suddenly over! 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—1990, and established the STAR OF PEACE AWARD, which continues.
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 and continued.
In September of 2017, our thoughtful Advisory to the leader of the DPRK (North Korea; also copied to the US President), was followed by an unexpected, if temporary, warming of relations between two volatile personalities, making everyone safer, at least for a time! As before, we received no explicit recognition, but the public benefit was huge.
Enormous financial resources and logistical capacities now spent on extremely painful conflicts throughout the world are desperately needed to meet basic human needs and the environment.
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 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 stabilizing and 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. Take intelligent action! Support this growing, vital, collective commitment to lasting peace and happiness via Our Highest Civic Ideals.
