Looking down at Los Angeles from the air it struck me that perhaps the time has come when not growing, not building, not consuming, not getting richer, not traveling and transporting enormous quantities of things and innumerable people will be called progress.
We must consider the Earth to be our real, biggest, essential, most valuable treasure. Earthcapitalism should be the new ideology.

Chapter 2 - Our Miraculous Planetary Home
Intellectual qualities are superior to physical qualities; moral qualities are superior to intellectual qualities; and spiritual qualities are the highest of all. This is borne out by our daily observations: a person endowed with a good physique and a fine mind is superior to one having only a good body; a person who has also good moral qualities is superior to the former; and most admirable is he or she who has a good physique, a great intelligence, a good heart and a soul in communion with all humanity, with God and the universe.*
The same is true of any social group, from the family to the entire human race. Our present human family is still very imperfect because:
- it has not yet assured good physical lives to all its 6 billion members: more than a billion still go hungry;
- it has not yet provided for good mental lives for all: there are still 800 million illiterates;
- it has not yet become a moral world: there are still many wars, injustices, inequalities, violence, hatred, lies, miseducation, misinformation, corruption and dishonesty on our planet;
- it is not yet a spiritual world: we have mostly earthly, materialistic concerns and seldom lift our minds, hearts and souls to the universe and to the eternal stream of time.
Humanity has still a good way to go.
