Saving the world or conquering it?

The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule.
- H.L. Mencken, writer, editor, and critic (1880-1956)

Little has changed to make us think this statement is out of date. We can see its truth in several parts of the world.

Turning It Around seeks to save humanity, doesn't it? So does TIA have a false front for a more devious agenda?

TIA is a plan, an inexpensive and effective program that may be implemented in any country in the world.

It's author, yours truly, merely devised the plan and presents it for consideration by others, no matter where they live. I am not a drum beater for TIA.

I have dedicated myself to spreading the word about the possibilities and potential for TIA, not for leading it. TIA plans must be lead locally to be effective. There is nothing for me to lead, in that sense.

I hope to convince a great number of people to adopt the TIA plan. But I will not live long enough to see it take full effect, even if the plan is widely adopted in the near future.

It will take several years to overcome the social problems that we have developed in each community once the plan is adopted.

The world can be changed more quickly, but only by force. With force, people adopt plans reluctantly. TIA is intended to include everyone within its embrace, not exclude anyone. It is 'people friendly' in the best sense of the term.

TIA is a plan to help humanity to save itself, to give itself a future. It can't be forced on anyone because that would be counteractive to its entire purpose and raison d'etre.

It's there. Take it or leave it. As TIA is the only plan available that has any chance of working, it's up to people to recognize it and adopt it willingly. I am merely its courier.
