The new law of human evolution is that all are required to compete for more money and commodities for themselves as ‘necessary to survive’, with the borderless system de-regulated and structured to increasingly impoverish the great majority while multiplying the wealth of the rich. The facts are now long in. Corporate globalization is not only out of control. It is eating the world alive at all levels towards cumulative collapse of organic, social and ecological life organization. Global competition means, in fact, the majority’s life means and security keep falling as the environment is looted and polluted on ever larger scales of depredation. Yet only ‘more growth’ of this system is imagined as a solution. The system is clinically insane.
— Dr. John McMurtry, Author - The Cancer Stage of Capitalism: From Crisis to Cure

What is Project Sanity?

1. An organising principle of social-life-coherent life-organisation.

2. Cutting through the noise within the ruling prism of our capsizing social construct, theatre director Scott Andrew presents Project Sanity, a weekly educational podcast laying bare the inner logic of the accelerating global systems collapse now faced by all peoples on Earth and the installation of the new emerging social model.

And it’s not all doom and gloom! Featuring a very careful mix of informative interviews, music, comedy and book/video recommendations in an attempt to bridge differences across social domains and help you align with the signal of the new global logic on the local level as we navigate through the absurdity beyond the pale.

Broadcast every Wednesday evening at 10:00pm New Zealand time (UTC+13) on Manawatu People’s Radio 999AM and also available on demand on this site and at the Manawatu People’s Radio site.


VIDEO: Sacred Economics with Charles Eisenstein - A Short Film

Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth.

Today, these trends have reached their extreme - but in the wake of their collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.

We are all in pain.
