NEW CIVILIZATION FOUNDATION
7.6.1 The New Civilization Foundation recognizes the profound significance of
the environment in all of its many attributes -- from the neighborhood back
lot or local section of land to the entire planet and all species within its purview as a complete, connected
entity. The NCF is accordingly dedicated to ecologically sound and
sustainable solutions in all of its many varied and diverse endeavors. To
this end, the NCF will actively support and promulgate the following
18.104.22.168 Seventh Generation Acknowledgement -- In the spirt of those who
have lived as part of the land, all decisions which may effect the natural and
created environments will consider the effects of such decisions on any future
seventh generation. This long-range view will prevail over short term
solutions, profit-oriented perspectives, matters of expediency, and other
limited vantage points.
22.214.171.124 Humanity is a fundamental aspect of the ecology. Human beings
and their interaction with other species is intricately linked within any
environment. This does not imply the precedence of one species over another,
but instead an attitude of common cause where all species knowingly or
unknowingly recognize the contribution of all other species to the common
126.96.36.199 "In wilderness is the preservation of the world." Humanity for
its own purposes -- as well as in having a profound respect for the habitats
of other species -- requires the existance and availability of wilderness in
all of its many forms (from deserts to mountains to rainforests to marshes).
188.8.131.52 The adage, "the solution to pollution is dilution", is in and of
itself a limited truth. While all human activities may be considered
polluting (or more accurately, affecting the environment), the degree to which
such pollution occurs can be modified by conscious choice of which activities
are pursued, as well as the manner in which they are conducted.
184.108.40.206 Quality of Life is a fundamental consideration in all activities
of humanity and other species. Furthermore, such quality of life may depend
upon the availability of adequate space (or volume) in order for each species
to pursue their own particular form of destiny.
7.6.2 In recognition of these principles, and to foster the aims of the
Foundation in pursuing ecologically sound activities, the NCF will pursue the
220.127.116.11 Engage in a continuing, rational dialogue regarding the effects
of human population on the local and global environments, as well as the
voluntary and unforced methods which may be applied to reduce significantly
the deleterious effects on the ecology by any unbalanced population of any
18.104.22.168. Foster activities which address in a positive way:
22.214.171.124.1 Alternative industrial and military processes which will enhance the environment instead of degrading it.
126.96.36.199.2. Providing alternatives to poverty and thus alleviating the necessity of poverty-based choices which might result in environmental degradation.
188.8.131.52.3 Elimination of survivability belief issues (based upon increasingly outdated economic or protection-style logic) such that individuals have alternatives to concentrated centers of humanity (cities).
184.108.40.206.4 Solutions and suggested modifications to often ancient,
obsolete cultural dynamics based on a lack of future or present resources and
which are ultimately deleterious to the environment.
220.127.116.11 Promote solutions to providing material needs to individuals
throughout the world in such a manner as to alleviate indirectly the causes of
ecological and environmental devastation.
18.104.22.168 Encourage the promulgation of NCF principles and values which can
directly or indirectly modify existing paradigms of scarcity, fear, and
survivability, and which, therefore, indirectly promotes improvements in the
environment, both locally and globally.
22.214.171.124 Advocate the humane treatment of all species of life (including
so-called food stocks), the continuation of species currently endangered, and
the increasing recognition of the sentient possibilities of other species.
126.96.36.199 Promote restoration and regeneration of Ecological sub-systems and resources which have been degraded.
188.8.131.52 Actively support organic and other forms of ecologically sound agricultural applications, and seek every means possible to stem the flow of enviro-toxic chemical pollutants into the environment from any and all sources, including agricultural.
184.108.40.206 Promote the Earth as a repository of nuturing, unconditional abundance for all species, but with the proviso that, "Itís not nice to fool Mother Nature."
