    Golden Rule Day

    This is a shout-out to everyone who wants to share with the Charter, via video, how the Golden Rule connects all of us. Every major religion has a version of the Golden Rule: Treat others as they want to be treated.  And there are hundreds of secular versions of the Golden Rule as well. The Golden Rule is everywhere because it is an ancient agreement on how to live together: My welfare is bound up in yours. It is the golden thread that connects all of us. On April 5, International Golden Rule Day, the Charter and our partners will highlight videos from about the world showing that universal connection. Please go to to learn more, submit your short videos, and/or volunteer to help with this event. Videos due by February 14.


    Start Date: January 12, 2021

    Have you ever wondered how you could cultivate the compassion called for in the Charter or help others cultivate that compassion? Compassionate Integrity Training (CIT) is a great place to start!

    CIT is a resiliency-informed program that cultivates human values as skills, so we can thrive as individuals, and a society, within a healthy environment.  By learning skills to calm our bodies and mind, becoming more emotionally aware, learning to practice compassion for ourselves and others, as well as engaging with compassion in complex systems, we can build towards compassionate integrity: the ability to live one’s life in accordance with one’s values with a recognition of common humanity, our basic orientation to kindness and reciprocity.

    Society has developed in such a way to facilitate a drastic malnourishment of community, connection and compassion. This book sets out the case for the effective restoration of the active power of compassion as a widely available, fundamental force for good in all aspects of human life. In the process, it draws attention to research which demonstrates that an innate capacity and need for compassionate behavior is closely woven into the fabric of our bodies.

    Between now and January 20,2021, the President of the United States has almost run out of arenas in which to impose his will.  His reelection has soured in infamy.  His concern for the COVID-19 pandemic faded long ago.  There is only one last pursuit available to him to demonstrate that he is the most powerful man on earth, i.e. using the nuclear weapons at his disposal. What if?
