Famine in Yemen

Yemen is facing a famine, and over 80% of its population is malnourished. Our Light Source Invention demonstrates that Yemen is one step away from becoming a failed state, but it also demonstrates the principle that can bring their stagnant economy back from the brink--capacity. The first principle of a global renaissance is that everyone must function from his or her own capacity.

The United States has been supplying arms to the Saudis, who have been fighting in Yemen, as have the Iranians. These unending conflicts, such as in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and Yemen, do not start overnight. As the Light Source Invention demonstrates, they are the result of three cycles of power games, which start and end with intolerance, or refusal to work together to do what is in everyone's best interest, and the conflicts are perpetuated by interfering governments. Oftentimes conflicts would end much sooner if the nations are left alone to handle their own disputes. In the era of the international government, nations will function on a continental level, and no nation will have the right to go into another country to dictate terms, or to interfere in any way.

Yemen is not alone in its crisis. The United States has entered into the third cycle of the Light Source Invention. Over the next several years, America will face these same waves of crises, but most other nations will be doing so also, unless our nation chooses to stand on the seven principles that bring the swinging pendulum back to the straight and narrow. The Gulf War of the early 1990s was an act of revenge against Saddam Hussein, setting the stage for the Iraq War, which devolved as a genocide, not a war. At the end of George W. Bush's second term, the United States faced a major economic crisis, and threats from terrorism. The Obama administration supplied arms to the Saudis to fight in Yemen, and now Donald Trump is also perpetuating the conflict, but without a clear understanding of the conflict.

The schism that was established on every level, such as between the Democrats and the Republicans within the United States, is collapsing the old paradigm based on power games, and eventually, it will reach the individual level. It all will come down to the point where each of us will have to start to function based on our talents and gifts, from our own capacity.

Our organization has several tools that enable us to trigger the global renaissance. For example, we have a tour planned, called the Global Renaissance Tour, that will visit the major cities of the southern half of the United States, and focus mainly on the Latinos, who are more likely to apply the principles of this new economic paradigm. They will demonstrate to the rest of us how to function on a higher level. 

In Yemen, the needs are immediate, but long term requirements involve first letting go of the conflict and the power games. Humanitarian efforts fail with bridges on supply routes and hospitals are bombed. In the era of the international government, the power a nation has will be based on its population, and it will benefit a government to take care of its people. An oppressive government will lose power on the international level, and, as the Light Source Invention demonstrates, oppression leads to wars, and eventually to poverty, and then  a failed state.
