Please embark on the journey of Us.

Our journey seeks a future where all humans live together enjoying freedom from fear and freedom from want: in community, with dignity, in harmony with one another and with the natural world.

Why should you join? Because you try to be a good person. You care about others. You value honesty and integrity. You know the difference between right and wrong. You accept wisdom wherever it’s found. Above all, you want to live a life of meaning and purpose. A life that makes a difference.

As we go along, you will choose your own final destination. It will suit who you are, and the change you would like to see in the world.

So welcome aboard. And bring some folks with you. There’s room enough for all of Us.

“I found [Us] engaging, encouraging, inspiring and informative. I also found it insightful. Books, as I know only too well, are difficult things to write. You have done a wonderful job of sharing your journey and your learning.”

“I found it to be a beautiful blend between personal narrative and philosophy. A well-reasoned call to action championing non-violence and gasroots community action. If you feel dire about the state of the world, this book is an antidote to feeling powerless.”

“Us is a book of values but not in an overly moralistic way. Visible through the book is a journalist at work, a journalist thinking through conundrums and complexities, and a journalist proposing action, but above all a human being, empathetic and compassionate and a thinking one.”
