The Peace Paradigm [And] Housing and World Order [And] Hunger and World Order [And] Hunger and World Order: Shaping a Moral Vision. The Whole Earth Papers, Vol. 1, No. 1-4, Fall, 1977.
Baines, James; And Others
This document is comprised of four papers which explore issues related to world order. The volume is intended to increase understanding of the linkages between local and global issues, and to examine them as interrelated issues in an interdependent world. The first paper, "The Peace Paradigm," explores recent changes in social and political attitudes from a power orientation, characterized by independence and domination, to a peace orientation, characterized by interdependence. The second paper, "Housing and World Order," explains how the present high cost of housing in the United States is related to inflation and increased defense spending. In order to change the trend in housing costs, changes in national security needs must be made on a global scale. The third paper, "Hunger and World Order," relates how countries give top priority to mobilization for national security at the expense of feeding their undernourished populations. Monies and resources are spent on maintaining a balance of weapons and payments, not on providing adequate food. The fourth paper, "Hunger and World Order. Shaping a Moral Vision," encourages people to become individually involved in eliminating hunger because the world hunger issue is not one of charity but of social justice. (AV)
