This is the Office of Dismantlement.
You may be here by choice or by accident. If the latter, click here to return to our homepage for the background to Dismantlement, its purpose, its design, and the need to dismantle many areas of the modern world.
The Office of Dismantlement - or O.D. - is an acronym of where we as a civilization stand on the balance sheet. We're OVERDRAWN on our account with the planet and we've OVERDOSED on our indulgent borrowings.
The world needs to be put into reverse to get it back to where it should be. To achieve this, a power base free of history, tradition, nationalism, racism, religious and political dogma, fashion, convention and the other obstacles to truth is needed.
With the growth of the world wide web, we now have that base. It allows groups like ourselves to occupy a strategic location in the world while remaining totally free from the world's vested interests and political sensitivities.
This site sets targets and explores the methods of achieving them. This is where the thinking behind Dismantlement will take place, carried out by you.
The actual work of Dismantlement will occur elsewhere - in office blocks, government ministries, factories, laboratories, businesses, conjugal beds...
On a PERSONAL level, Dismantlement demands that you ask yourself,
- 'Do I really need that bigger car?'
- 'Do we really want another child?'
- 'Do I really need to drive there when I can travel by bus?'
On a CORPORATE level, it demands that companies ask themselves,
- 'Do we really need to get ever bigger and sell ever more?'
- 'Is it morally justifiable to exploit these people for our betterment?'
- 'Do we really need to put our resources into THIS product, when
THAT one does far less harm to the environment?'
Dismantlement starts at the top. Like tearing down a building, it has to be done slowly, one brick at a time, because it's a building we still occupy. Dismantlement starts with the top countries, the top people in government, commerce and industry. It starts with the countries that have most to dismantle, materially, because the underdeveloped countries of the South will only consider halting their own charge towards the seemingly gold-paved streets of the North if they see the developed countries ripping those same streets up and walking back to join them halfway.
The Office of Dismantlement is currently divided into departments, the most important of which is Population. Everyone is invited to enter the department of their interest or expertise and is urged to contribute to the Dismantlement Online think-tank. Any idea, however far-fetched it may sound, is welcome, as is constructive criticism.
OPENING A NEW DEPARTMENT
If you don't see a department devoted to your specific area of interest or expertise, OPEN ONE. Simply go to Dismantlement Online, click the bonsai tree to bring up the standard E-mail box and make your entry, being sure to give it a subject header. For example, if your interest is natural pesticide, write a short introduction, set what you feel are realistic targets for the next 250 years, and mail it to us. We'll check it out and make a page for it.
When writing, please be as concise and brief as possible and try to stick to the Dismantlement framework. There are other sites which provide forums for open general discussion. Here, we want to remain focussed.
