"And what is the initial line inscribed that
connects all other issues of sustainability for civilization in a world?

Child Rearing.

Child rearing is fundamental to a sustainable family, a sustainable
community, sustainable nation, and a sustainable civilization in the
world. Similarly as justice and injustice offer insights to a nation's
degrees of evolution and development, a nation's maturity can as well be
determined by the state of its prisoners, so too can the future of those
organizations, families, communities, states, nations, civilizations be
foretold through the child rearing practices that are in place.

Almost in no place in your world are there large populations where child
rearing practices suggest or lead to sustainable communities. A nation
that is socially stable provides the technological and material supports
necessary to raise children to become adequate individuals. But do they
thrive? If I were to give your political candidates a slogan to use, it
would be to, "thrive and survive." And, to do that there must be a
foundation of public policies that promote a sustainable environment.
There must be a foundation of child rearing practices and philosophies
in place and in practice in a majority of families in a nation in order
for a nation to be sustained. These then connect all other sustainable
practices, public policies, and social philosophies.

It is from this perspective of child rearing that all else is
related-justice, governance, police coverage, education-all evolve out
of your child rearing practices. The question that you must ask every
one, at every level of organization, is how do these policies, how do
the intentions, how do the functions of this organization support the
rearing of children, so they can become sustainable individuals on their
own?

There must be a way of examining your public policies, family policies,
philosophies and religious education, that points back to some source,
so your civilizations become sustainable. Yes, even your religions must
contribute to this. This is a way of testing religious doctrine: How
do they contribute to the individual, and the individual's survival as a
soul in the universe? Surely, fear and guilt have nothing to do with
sustainable lives, the growth of souls, the increase of a soul's weight
and value after death.

The maintenance of nations is maintained-or not-through its practices of
sustaining its citizenry. Citizenry is sustained by its practices and
philosophies that are applicable to raising children to become loving,
peaceful, contributing, constructive individuals in a society. Pluck
any individual out of a society or culture, a community or a family, and
you can examine the state of your nation and your world. You know that
peace is the measure of a world's civilization. Where there is peace,
there is civilized conduct. Where there is sustainable peace, there is
the advancement of society and the progress of civilization.

What practices evolve and develop to contribute to the development and
sustainable aspects of a child? Moreover, as importantly-equally
important-how do all the policies and philosophies support the
sustaining power of a family to raise these children? If your
technologies do not contribute to that, then they must be discarded,
amended, or adapted so they do. When you examine your civilization with
this touchstone, you will see how much and how immature your world truly
is. You will see, you will measure, you will come to know with
certainty that your nation may be a materially and technologically
advanced, but morally, ethically, socially, familially, and
individually, very retarded.

We are not talking about the mortality rate of individuals; we are not
talking about the divorce rate of marriages-we are talking about the
suicide rate among individuals. We are talking about the abuse rate of
families and relationship between individuals. We are talking about
measurable aspects that deteriorate your civilization. Hopefully, you
can see them as obviously as we do. Why are so many of your people in
prison? Why is it that so many people are socially aberrant? What is
contributing to that?

I would now point you in a more profitable direction than putting out
the "brush fires" that you see in your society. There are many aspects
in your society that are working quite well, very well, exceedingly
well, and some things that are not working well at all! I give you a
metaphor: If you were a fire department and you found all these brush
fires around in the suburbs happening, you would go around and put them
out, and you would continue to do so until someone said, "Ah ha! There
must be an arsonist here, causing these brush fires. Let us see what is
wrong; let us see if we can identify this arsonist and anticipate their
next move and remove them from our society." Therefore, you joined
forces with your police and find this individual.

You have many social brush fires occurring in your world, your nation.
I speak largely to you now, in this nation, because this is the one you
are familiar with, yet in other nations that are more advanced in
ethical and moral ways, there are also problems there too. There are
nations in your world that are so basically, morally, ethically and
socially retarded that it could be millennia before they become
productive and contributing elements to your world, though this could be
shortened literally by millennia, if the right forces and the right
thoughts of public and foreign policies were in place."
