Bound by learned beliefs

The importance of its message merits repetition: "We are binded by nothing except belief" - Ernest Holmes

To those who claim:

  • We cannot change the system
  • It is human nature to compete
  • We cannot live without leaders

These "beliefs" are the product of conditioning from birth through education, media and the virtual world we inhabit. If we want to change the world, we only have to believe in the possibility. Accumulated human knowledge and wisdom of millennia shows [how] it can be done.


The biggest impediment is within ourselves; we've been conditioned to self-promote at the expense of others - competition is embedded within our culture. Our salvation lies in cooperation and dissolution of hierarchy.
