Restoring the Common WEALTH
Common WEALTH? or Commonwealth?
What is the most important thing in your life?
What do you most need in order to insure your survival?
If we have no safe Water to drink we will die.
If we pollute our Earth we will be sick, maybe even die.
If we have no safe Air to breathe we will die.
If we misuse our Land we destroy the source of our food.
If we sacrifice our Trees for profit we disrupt the environment.
If we disrupt the Heat from the sun then the water, the earth, the air, the land, the trees all suffer.
This idea is expressed in a novel Resoring the Common WEALTH. It looks at our world through the eyes of a Native American. It presumes that our real worth is not in money, or power, or government. Our real worth is in the WATER which sustains the EARTH on which we live, the AIR we all breathe, the LAND which prodvides us with food, the TREES which shelter us, and the sun which provides us with HEAT and light. Without the sun everything would freeze and die.
About three hundred years ago John Law convinced European rulers that these elements which provide us with our COMMON WEALTHcould be owned. They could be owned by the state or ruling body. So, our COMMON WEALTH became a commonwealth.

To see the effects of COMMON WEALTH becoming commonwealth simply continue on this website.
Destroying the COMMON WEALTH in favor of the commonwealth is one of the underlying problems facing all of humanity. It is a major reason we have such a worldwide economic problem. If such an improportionate amount of our budget were not spent on military and weapons we would not have such a huge national debt. We would not have to have military bases throughout the world. We would have money to meet our more pressing social problems. The picture also brings us back to the title of the website Work For Peace.
