[GMW #1885] Planetics & Politician Replace Politics & Politician - Their Role Is Of Love For Humans And Love For Our Planet

Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 230 ~    25 February 1995

The word "politics" and "politician" (from the Greek "polis", the administration of the city) should be replaced by "planetics" and "planetician".  Even better, the role of politicians should be transformed into love for humans (philanthropists, from the Greek phil, love, and anthropos, man) and love for our planet (gaiaphilists, from Greek GAIA, the goddess Earth and phil, love).

Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,  
Volume III Chapter I - The Span Of Life
A survey of all the people over 100 years old in the United States (75,000 of them) revealed that they attributed their longevity to three virtues:

- optimism
- devotion to a cause
- acceptance of losses.
I possess all three.  They have carried me successfully through war and peace to the age of 78.
