…or it would be if today’s politics weren’t so polarized and highly charged, and the world didn’t feel like it was falling apart.
At Simpol, we’re trying to be of good cheer, focusing on a way to meet the world with solutions that reconcile, that heal, and that forgive.
We see people on the political right wanting less immigration, trying to safeguard their sense of national and cultural identity. We see those on the political left wanting an end to wealth inequality and environmental destruction. We see Simpol bridging the gap between them.
Only global cooperation can end the wars and desperate economic circumstances that drive people to migrate against their will. Only global cooperation can deliver global taxes on financial markets and multi-national corporations so that wealth is redistributed to the nations that need it, leading their economies to grow, allowing their citizens to make a living at home, and so safeguard the national cultural identities of all nations, north and south.
Only global cooperation and simultaneous implementation can deliver regulations on emissions that don’t risk businesses and jobs moving elsewhere.
Only Simpol can reconcile the legitimate concerns of both Right and Left.
That’s what Simpol, with your help, aims to deliver.
At this time of desperate short-sightedness and division in the world, we need Simpol’s healing message more than ever.
This festive season, we hope you will join us in telling your friends, colleagues or any NGOs that you’re involved in that there isa solution that reconciles. Or better still, give them the gift of the book The Simpol Solution.
From all of us at Simpol, thank you for your support and we wish you and your family season’s greetings and much happiness at this special time.
Until next time,
Alex, John and the Simpol team

“A courageous and urgently needed book. It points to the crux of the issue: ‘We can’t solve the problems of the world with the same thinking that produced them.’ Einstein said this, and Bunzl and Duffell point the way to acting on it. This book needs to be read by just about everyone!” – Ervin Laszlo. Now available in Dutch from publisher Lemniscaat! Have you read The SIMPOL Solution yet?
Our German publisher has also just launched a campaign to finance a German edition of The SIMPOL Solution. Want to bring the gift of Simpol to Germany? Please do support the campaign.
