The 13th sector is “Worldview” because how we see the world – what we believe to be true - determines how we experience everything that happens within and around us.
Within each Sector you can explore Critical Issues, Vital Data, Navigating Insights, Solutions Strategies, Success Stories, Everyday Actions (not yet on ThriveOn), and more. Check out your particular areas of interest. Expand out to explore new ones and see how they are all part of an interconnected, whole system.
All people will be free to creatively express their innermost passions and insights, in a way that fulfills themselves, inspires others, and does no harm.
The arts are undervalued and suppressed, which isolates us from each other and our deeper selves.
We can use the arts to express our realities, promote and reflect social change, challenge the status quo, and connect more deeply with ourselves and others. A truly open Internet makes it possible to inexpensively share creative inspiration with vast numbers of people through music, poetry, films, photos, paintings and more.
A thriving humanity on a healthy planet, truly free to meet our own needs, to exchange voluntarily, to build prosperity, and to take care of each other and the environment without coercion or aggression.
The current economy has been taken over by a rigged system that benefits a few at the expense of most. Not only the U.S. but virtually the entire world economy is verging on free-fall collapse, taking the well-being and lives of billions down with it.
We have the power to change our economic system and allow it to work for everyone. There are well-developed and brilliant ideas for how to create truly thriving economies.
The Economics Sector is perhaps the most important one of all to transform because the way the money system works directly impacts each and every person’s job, home, family and community. Creating centralized banks, a system that requires debt and makes up money out of nothing, has allowed the international banking elite to gradually turn almost the entire world into a population of debt-slaves. Exposing and eliminating this system – and replacing it with an honest and open one - can provide the critical turning point toward creating a world where all can thrive.
People are free to pursue the type of learning that most appeals to their interests, passions, and needs.
State schools are failing and government mandated education forces everyone to learn the same and often useless material despite the unique interests and learning styles of each individual. The curriculum is designed more to serve the purposes of corporations and the government than those of the student.
Diverse, alternative schools and teaching models encourage critical thinking and creative expression among students and honor the choice of each individual.
A healthy planet, free of pollution where people act responsibly to protect and maintain balance with the environment.
The water, soil and atmosphere are being dangerously polluted and manipulated. Extinction rates are growing and people are starving.
In every area that our environment is threatened, people are organizing to intervene with strategic and effective solutions.
People voluntarily cooperate and organize to create prosperous communities without coercive government.
Involuntary government violates our rights, creates war, and funds itself and its actions with our money…all without our approval.
We can transition out of current government systems and ultimately create empowering, self-governing, voluntary communities where everyone is given the opportunity to thrive and truly be free.
Natural healing and pro-active health maintenance will combine with freedom to access ethical advanced technology - supporting healthy thriving people all over the world.
The profit-motivated health care industry is creating more dependence on drugs and less overall health. People are over-medicated, inundated with toxic pollutants, lack access to quality healthcare, and millions around the world are dying of preventable and treatable diseases.
Whole-systems approaches for prevention and healing are emerging, natural treatments and technologies have the potential to cure cancer, and meaningful health care reform can be achieved.
Infrastructure will be innovative, sustainable, and appropriate to the needs of the people, while having a minimal impact on our planet. Breakthrough energy, manufacturing and transportation technologies will drastically reduce costs and pollution.
Most countries have poor and failing infrastructure that severely impacts daily life and threatens our safety.
Innovative, sustainable, eco-friendly technologies can better support our lives and communities. Shrinking government and moving into a truly free market can liberate creativity, lower the costs and raise the quality of our roads, utilities and other infrastructure.
There will be rules but no rulers, and justice will serve the protection of individual rights through respected, independent Dispute Resolution Organizations (DROs).
Our current justice system is inefficient, racially biased, punitive, overly costly, and fails to protect each individual’s rights.
We can create a justice system based on the principle of non-violation that serves and protects everyone.
Everyone has access to a wide range of diverse and accurate information from sources that are transparent about their funding and which include in-depth analyses and honest debates about controversial issues.
A handful of corporations own the media and their influence is not transparent to viewers. Their intrinsic conflict of interest limits our access to diverse perspectives. Corrupt corporations are taking over social media and censoring dissident opinions.
We can use the Internet to access diverse information, broadcast events and information instantaneously, share best practices as well as solution strategies, and explore issues and innovations with people all around the globe.
A world where people will have access to the skills, role models and experiences to support relating to oneself and to others with respect, cooperation and balanced interchange.
Breakdowns in communication – interpersonally and between armed nation-states continues to escalate, creating on-going suffering and leading potentially to total global collapse.
The mastering of communication and conflict resolution skills becomes a vital part of family interaction as well as educational and organization learning environments, leading to a peaceful, thriving world based on honoring one another’s rights and essential being.
A world where Science serves the thriving of all people, where human beings are open to the benefit of rigorous processes of inquiry with logic, research and testing while simultaneously honoring the role of consciousness and phenomena that stretch beyond the reach of the physical senses and the rational mind.
The genuine search for the truth about how nature works is increasingly co-opted by the vested interests of those who control the funding of research and patenting (such as corporations, politicians and the military), and the genuine pursuit of greater understanding about how the universe works and our place in it is superseded by the agenda of a controlling elite. The science of climate, energy and medicine are just a few examples of how money and politics has hijacked the search for truth that characterizes the true scientific method.
Research and development takes place in a truly free market of voluntary association and results that impact the public are transparent about the sources of their funding. Science is honored for its ability to discover how we can align our systems with natural principles and thrive together on a healthy planet.
This section will not attempt to be any sort of an encyclopedia of science, but instead it is intended to offer a couple of new lenses to look through and some powerful insights that are liberating the quest for scientific understanding of the cosmos and our place in it.
A world where each person is free to experience directly his/her own unique sense of their inner spiritual nature without coercion or suppression.
A one-world authoritarian government or any particular religion becomes so powerful that they suppress the natural choice of any individual to freely experience our unique spirituality.
Humans experience their spiritual nature as so interconnected with all species and with life itself, that war, deprivation and corruption become faint memories of a bygone era in the evolving consciousness of life on planet Earth and beyond.
We view life from integral, inclusive, whole systems perspectives that support all to be free and thrive on a healthy planet.
People with belief systems that condone corruption and violence have rigged a system where they have virtual monopolies on both the source of money and the military power to enforce their agenda.
People are engaging worldwide in conversations that inspect and expose various destructive systems and the worldviews that put them in place, supporting the emergence of greater integrity and morality in the process.
