The Rise and Fall of Civilisation: Perspectives of Moral Political Economy

We are in the midst of a crisis in values, moral and ethical, of an enormous scale - in a society desperately in need of cosmic spiritual values.

These are the words of the Reverend Canon Peter Challen, Chairman of the Christian Council of Monetary Justice - who opened a debate on The Rise and Fall of Civilisation: Perspectives of Moral Political Economy held on 20th July 2010 in London. Speakers included Moeen Yaseen, Managing Director Global Vision 2000, Daud Pidcock, also of Global vision 2000, Muhammad Rafeeq, Banking Consultant, Vijay Mehta, Lawrence Bloom, and Michael King.

The purpose of the debate was to "promote alternative holistic sustainable solutions which open the door to an era of prosperity within the framework of a moral political economy."

The human predicament is now dire - deeply deeply so, Peter reminds us - and we need a coalition for the common good of an inclusive justice - we are stealing from the future in our current behaviour - there is a fierce urgency of now.. Peter concluded a powerful 10 minutes introduction by calling for a new "world cup" of compassion and inclusive justice.

Please spend 10 minutes to watch this video and carefully listen to his words.
