This video is based on a map of human learning. Ken Low, human learning ecologist (Action Studies Institute/Leadership Calgary) creates maps of how we as individuals and cultures learn and move towards wise action. This map explores what voices one might need to consider when moving towards wise action as a leader in order to move our culture, our species forward. There is not guarantee of success in this Human Venture - we could just "progress" ourselves into extinction like the Easter Islanders. But, if we, or some of us, choose not to, there are some patterns we can understand. This map shows us part of the story
This video reminds us of what we should not forget, war is the best of a series of bad decisions, a failure of diplomacy. Lest we forget: Young people, old people, soldiers die because governments fail to engage early enough, believe in their imperialist powers, exploit others & underprivilege yet more.
It asks us to consider the promise we made "never again". What would it take to ensure genocide does not happen again? What is our own responsibility in that promise?
This video draws on the books Sophie Scholl & The White Rose by Jud Newborn & Annette Dumbach, Time for Outrage by Stephan Hessel & A Brief History of Genocide by Barbara Collorosso.
I hope it inspires you to read all three together and consider what it tells us about what is most needed now... lest we forget
