The Commission for Human Future Been Formed
Canberra Regional Meeting member, Professor Bob Douglas, is the Secretary of the Commission for the Human Future. He reports:
“Every single year the human species devotes $1.8 trillion to buy new weapons. And it devotes about $70 billion to developing better food and agricultural techniques. We are the proud members of a species that spends 25 times more on butchering ourselves then we do on feeding ourselves.”
I am attaching a brief overview of what the Commission seeks to do and the report of our first Roundtable, We held our second Roundtable in late May on Food Security and I anticipate the Commission will be having a session on the nuclear threat some time this year.
I think we have to push to reduce our defence budget in favour of a “surviving and thriving’ budget.”
