1. Crisis of Consciousness

In order to understand the urgent need for change, we shall start by putting our existing social and economic models into perspective. The current crisis is not just systemic. It is first and foremost a crisis of consciousness. This, in turn, defines a narrow ethical framework, bringing about a set of distorted beliefs. Such beliefs encourage selfish values that sustain a materialistic paradigm from which we acquire limited knowledge, encouraging a system that alienates us more than it liberates us. All together, it calls for the need to change our narrow ethical framework, distorted beliefs, selfish values, materialistic paradigms, limiting knowledge, and indeed our system. But above all, it compels us to raise our current level of consciousness.
