John Bunzl (SIMPOL)
We've discussed with our many brilliant guests how Education needs to be reformed, Heart Connection needs to be restored, Relationship building between Species needs to be rekindled, Power of 8 Consciousness groups need to be seeded, but what about politics and policy, the driving engine of much of this world's toxicity? Our guest on this episode is John Bunzl, a British activist and business leader whose initiative, the International Simultaneous Policy Organisation (SIMPOL) seeks to address global problems by facilitating coordinated action on an international level. As the world spins out of control at a faster and faster rate, Mr. Bunzl and SIMPOL acknowledge that our world leadership—political and economic—will never catch up to the problem following the old paradigm which does nothing to encourage the cooperation that is so desperately needed. Join us as Fred, John, and Alison engage in a lively conversation that covers business, politics, ethics, consciousness, and much more. Unfortunately, Ervin had to unexpectedly cancel his appearance on today’s program, but he will be back next week!
