What would happen if humanity declared war on world poverty and suffering and acted on this declaration with the same vigor and mobilization level that we would have happened had we declared World War 3 on each other?
This is the exact scenario that Benjamin Fulford alludes to in his latest blog. Benjamin Fulford is at the forefront of a growing number of people including myself that believe change is coming and that it is coming soon! There are a lot of doomsday predictions out there but this growing movement focuses more on positive swathes of change that will affect humanity on an unprecedented level.
You would be hard pressed to not be aware what the catalyst for this change will most likely be. It is all over the news and all over the internet. The summer news that is usually dubbed ” silly season, ” due to the lack of proper stories, is packed with financial scandal on a scale unprecedented to date and the scandal is growing daily. A brief scan of financial forums shows that these scandals and misdeeds run deep into a financial system and are probably just the tip of a very unpleasant iceberg.
Its very hard to imagine what would happen if a full financial meltdown occurred.
Life will go on.
Things will change.
I could add to that list that people will panic or people will loot, but they are not certainties and they don’t matter in the long run. The things above are certainties and will affect the long run. Change is something that is so positive and empowering, especially in a world that needs change more than ever, so whatever comes our way let’s embrace it and try to change for the better.
If life turned on its head tomorrow, the banks closed and the airwaves went dead, what would you really miss? What do you hold dear? With this in mind, here are some things to ask yourself.

And now ask yourself again what would you really miss? What do you hold dear?
What would happen if humanity declared war on world poverty and suffering and acted on this declaration with the same vigor and mobilization level that we would have happened had we declared world war 3 on each other?
Does a caterpillar miss being a caterpillar once it has become a butterfly? Let yourself find opportunity in the change.
