EXISTENTIAL RISKS
WAR
Not a good way to solve problems


WAR / DESTRUCTION
The value destruction associated with war is ignored in metrics like GDP ... though the production of the bombs that do the damage are included.
Aleppo, Syria Sanaa, Yemen Mosul, Iraq

SECOND WORLD WAR GO TO
Second World War
It is fair to argue that fighting in WWII was defensive and a matter of survival, and the elimination of some very evil behaviors. But fighting has very high costs ... on both sides, and also to non combatants who should not be hurt.
TPB note: I was born in 1940 and lived in the outskirts of London throughout the war. Eventually I was old enough to understand something of what the bombing was doing ... blowing out windows, ripping off roofs, knocking down the walls of buildings ... in that order of severity. As a very young child, I never knew that bombs killed and injured people. We slept in an air-raid shelter that my parents had built in the garden that would have been a safe place for anything but a direct hit! Since then I have read a lot about the various bombing campaigns of WWII, and followed the bombing campaigns in every subsequent war. I don't like war, and especially I don't like the bombing associated with war.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
