The Ethical Society
A Framework For a Peaceful, Sustainable World
by William T. Carruthers

“How is it that we know we are headed for destruction as a species, and yet are unable to effect the necessary changes needed for survival?” We know from history that our current thinking and values will not lead to a peaceful, sustainable future. It is more crucial now than ever that we learn to break the cycle so that we can create a global community that balances diversity and individuality with integration and harmony. The answer lies in how we think. We are trapped in social systems based on power structures designed to keep us divided in antagonistic and non-viable behaviors. We have divorced how we understand the world through science with how we find meaning in our lives through religion, alienating us from the world and each other. To overcome these challenges, we need to focus our thinking on the global community by giving priority to universal ethical values. With ethical priority, we can shift power interests from a tribal to a human perspective and reconnect understanding with meaning. We can reduce alienation and improve harmony around the world. In The Ethical Society, William Carruthers provides the roadmap for us to finally achieve that peaceful, sustainable world.

"Carruthers provides a pragmatic alternative framework that he hopes will inspire positive change... Impressive." -Kirkus Reviews
