[GMW #2729] Humanity Lovers & Earth Lovers For A Better World For Everyone - People & Nature

[GMW #2729] Humanity Lovers & Earth Lovers For A Better World For Everyone - People & Nature
Idea Dream -Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 3500
~ Idea 3122 ~
I recommend that the word philanthropy be translated from its Greek meaning (phil: love and anthropos: the human being) into common language of today namely, love for humanity.  A philanthropist would be a humanity lover.  Love for the Earth being a recent phenomenon, the Greeks had no word for it.  I did it for them and coined the word Gaiaphily, love for Gaia, the Earth in Greek. 

But much better would be simply love for the Earth.  A philanthropist or gaiaphilist giving resources to preserve the Earth would be called an Earth lover.  So we would have humanity lovers and Earth lovers and some people could be both.

Volume II Chapter 3 Of Consciousness
An organ is only justified by its function.  No organ survives if its function disappears.  What are the functions of our organs?  Why were they given to us?  What is the function meant for the human race on this planet?  If we do not find out, we will disappear. 

The answer in my view is to be responsible for the future evolution of planet Earth.

The love of one's country is a natural thing.
But why should love stop at the border?
