Enlightened Capitalist

Manifesto

There is a new power shaping the world – enlightened individuals – who show up fully, contribute generously, listen intently, learn openly, act purposefully, celebrate enthusiastically, reinvent business sustainably and transform lives globally.

In our world:

  • check
    Purposeful, thoughtful, courageous, inspirational, impactful, healthy and ecological contributions of individuals are appreciated, validated, encouraged, recognized, rewarded and celebrated
  • check
    Consumption and waste are reduced and sustainability is a primary driver in individual and business decisions
  • check
    Fear, divisiveness and conflict are no longer used to control people and instead hope, cooperation and peaceful interactions for solving challenges provide the framework of a better future
  • check
    Opportunities for better health, wealth and happiness are available for all, not only the privileged
  • check
    Lives are transformed through better relationships, experiences, communication, health, education, work and living conditions
  • check
    All businesses have the same market-decided opportunities for success or failure, pay their fair share of taxes and are subject to the same environmental, societal, legal and ethical requirements
  • check
    Political leaders are genuinely committed to improving the lives of their constituents and they rebel against special interest groups who lobby, manipulate and hold power over their ability to do so
