Everything we do is driven by the socioeconomic construct we all live in. Our needs, wants, dreams, desires and ambitions together with our struggles, the over striving and the tremendous stress as well as the constant anxiety to succeed are all dictated by this construct. The problem with the construct is that it doesn't have mutual consistency, throwing us all into a deep confusion of who we are and what we are to do with our lives.

Resilience: Unleashing The Extraordinary Potential Of Humanity
Everything we do is driven by the socioeconomic construct we live into each day. Our needs, wants, dreams, desires and ambtions together with our struggles, the over striving and the tremendous stress compunded with the constant anxiety to succeed are all dictated by this construct. The problem with the construct is that it doesn't have mutual consistency, throwing us all into a deep confusion of who we are and what we are to do with our lives.
Is there a connection between the rapid depletion of resources, the degradation of the planet with the debt crises, austerity, the geopolitical turmoil, continual armed conflicts and the lock down of ideological polarization? It's all driven by the socioeconomic construct we live in. A construct we all each day uphold as we go about doing what we do.
How did we get here? What were the events that led to this situation? What does the future hold? And how can we get shift the construct to something that is more workable for all of humanity?
The documnetary examines what we can lern from the indigenous peoples and how we can use that wisdom in our modern world.
Some Cold Hard Facts To Consider:
1. The population of the world is projected to reach ten billion by 2050.
2. We are already using resources at a faster pace than the earth can regenerate. August 8 this year marked the Earth Overshoot Day, meaning that we have officially consumed more than the Earth can regenerate. At this rate our consumption and depletion and degradation would be equivalent to two earth's by 2030. But we only have one Earth.
3. Clearly the Socioeconomic Construct we live in isn't working. Our psyches have been programmed a certain way, and we need to free ourselves of the conditioning.
4. Each year the World Economic Forum (WEF) meets in Davos to discuss the future as well as publishes a Global Risks report. The WEF 2013 report focuses on how to create Resilience for countries and corporations. But there is no mention of the pressing problems of the Socioeconomic Construct itself, and what the ordinary person on the street should be doing.
The ordinary peson on the street, which is you, must take control of your own life, and start being the change that makes the difference. When millions of people start to build resiliency in their own lives, they can start to institute change on a larger scale. This is the soft revolution that the world needs. Hard revolutions don't change the construct. They are short term band-aids that spill blood by moving the pieces of the puzzle aound with no real long term solutions.
The Documentary Focuses on
1. Where we are at. 2. How did we get here. 3. What can an individual, group or community do to become resilient such that they have the ability to withstand, recover from and reorganize in response to crises. 4. What the shift in Socioeconomic Construct ought to be so that it serves the wellbeing of ALL humanity.
