Potential Books to Carry at the World 5.0 Bookstore in Cincinnati


World 5.0 is the idea that we intend a cultural operating system based on ethics instead of the current system of globalization built by and for the 1% and based on the power of money. Here's a link to the website...

I've attached the PDF of the book, "World 5.0 - Healing Ourselves, Our Earth and Our Life Together" to this discussion. [If you don't find the link shoot me an email... jim@world5.org.] It breaks down the idea of World 5.0 in a number of contexts, speaking of who and where we are, this destination of a new ethical culture based on peace and love, and the process for getting there.

I decided to open the bookstore when I couldn't generate interest to carry the book from the main independent bookstore in Cincinnati [Joseph Beth], and a fellow Occupier offered me a deal on a little storefront on Main Street. Now we need to add more titles. Of course I'm not interested in dramas or novels, per se. We want titles that mirror the efforts of Occupy Cafe and World 5.0. If you have thoughts about titles to carry, please use the comments area below. 

Thanks a bunch!

peace and love

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More
