Friends of Community presents the unconventional Thrive: What On Earth Will It Take? at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11 at the Salmar Classic Theatre.
This film, directed by Foster Gamble purports to “lift the veil” on the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives.
“Weaving together breakthroughs in science, consciousness and activism, Thrive offers real solutions, empowering us with unprecedented and bold strategies for reclaiming our lives and our future,” says a Thrive website
Gamble charges that it is not that humans are incapable of thriving, it’s that we’ve been duped into a system that is designed to consolidate wealth and power, rather than provide a real opportunity for people to thrive.
“By exposing this agenda, strategically challenging deceptive systems such as central banks and fiat money, and coming up with new ways to organize and co-operate, we can obsolete this destructive agenda and liberate our planet and our true human potential,” says the website.
A conversation will follow the film
Friends of Community is a newly formed group that plans to open and continue the conversation on what it takes for us to thrive in terms of energy, food, health care, education and the financial system, says Goldie Wilson, a founding member of the group.
Wilson says the group is hoping to bring different community groups together to share their wisdom and ideas in a spirit of co-operation.
“Again, it’s about thinking globally and acting locally in all these areas that affect our lives.”
The film is a fundraiser for the food bank and admission is by donation. Doors open at 3 p.m.
