Foster Gamble — Worldview in 6 Minutes

Foster Gamble is a direct descendant of the late James Gamble, soap-maker and founder of the U.S. consumer goods corporation, Proctor and Gamble. Growing up in Cincinnati, Ohio, Gamble lived his childhood in a position of privilege and power. He attended elite private schools and Princeton University. Groomed to be a leader in the establishment,  Gamble chose a different path.

As a young boy, Gamble had an inquisitive personality that led him to envision a world scenario of a universal energy source. Pursuing a lifelong journey in the pursuit of knowledge, Gamble involved himself in many intellectual subjects. Unhappy with the current structure of power in the world and massive global suffering, Foster Gamble set out to make a documentary that unveiled the true reality of our existence in the 21st century.

THRIVE is a movie, free online, created by Foster & Kimberly Gamble out of Santa Cruz, CA. It has been viewed by over 22 million, and contains over 14 bleeding edge possibilities.

The website is just now developing as a hub for a mixture of spirtualist and activist souls. It turns out, as explained by Foster Gamble in one of his many personal appearances, that spiritualists are vastly better able to get a grip on complex and often incomprehensible issue mash-ups, while activists tend to focus on one issue at a time. Hence, it is the spiritualists that are the leaders and the integrators.

Behavioural Conflict: Why Understanding People and Their Motives Will Prove Decisive in Future Conflict by Andrew Mackay and Steve Tatham ; foreword by Stanley McChrystal.

        The Small Wars Journal Blog has a post previewing a new book by Andrew Mackay and Steve Tatham. Behavioural Conflict: Why Understanding People and Their Motives Will Prove Decisive in Future Conflict considers how the West’s Post Cold War conflicts have been fought amongst people rather than between armies. From publisher’s description:

“These people, amongst others, have been Mendes, Kissis and Konos (and the 13 other tribes of Sierra Leone), they have been Serbo-Croats, Bosnians, Kosovars, Albanians, Unizzahs, al-Ribads, al-Zobaids, Kurds, al-Montifig (and the other tribal groups of the nearly 40 that make up Iraq), Pashtuns, Hazaras, Uzbecks (and the other 6 ethnic groupings that make up Afghanistan’s rich tapestry of population), they have been Sunni, Shia, Orthodox, Agnostic, Christian, Catholic; they have been farmers, politicians, police, administrators, businessmen, narco khans, war lords, men, women and children. In fact you can divide them in any one of a hundred or so different ways but the only certainty is that all of these groups and people will exhibit behaviour, that may appear utterly irrational but for better or worse will have profound effects upon the manner in which military missions are conducted.” 

The book is based on a paper written in 2009 for the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom. The tale of the lone Afghan farmer sowing seeds in a field near the Kajaki Dam should be a warning to those from the developed world who underestimate the intelligence of people just because they don’t speak English or have grown up without electricity and running water.

This book will have utility for anyone working in military, peacekeeping, policing or any other other cross cultural situation.
