Solutions / Solutions Strategies

The solution strategies presented here are based on years of consulting with historians, visionaries, and experts in all of the 12 Sectors. They offer promising possibilities for creating a world in which nobody’s rights are violated and every person has the opportunity to thrive.

Our health care system is based on a model that profits from sickness. Pharmaceutical companies control the funding of the AMA and the FDA and are often run by the same people who preside over these research and regulating bodies. This intrinsic conflict of interest results in sicker people and a limit on cures that can't be patented.
