SAFE G: Empowering Resilient Communities


Mission. To empower local communities to design immediate and effective SAFE G solutions that implement optical fiber wired to the home and office. Local taxpayers and ratepayers are entitled to this alternative to wireless, because they have already paid for it. Please see: Irregulators v. FCC.

5G/AI/Internet of Things Juggernaut presents an imminent threat. The harms to our community’s physical and mental health, the local environment, violations of citizen’s rights to due process, property, and personal privacy are foreseeable and preventable. The threat is especially dangerous to our children, elderly people, those with special sensitivities, disabled persons with chronic illnesses, caregivers, and our economically disadvantaged and minority communities that have no escape in their homes or workplaces.

Remedy: Community Empowerment: An effective remedy begins with widespread education and training in a proven system of wise leadership, community organization, team building, and negotiation. With this purpose we have created a 5G Dojo to support local communities around the world that are facing similar challenges. The key is to share negotiation successes and practical experience, so these lessons can be immediately deployed within the network. Equally essential is to fortify community-wide resilience rapidly and effectively. (See: 5 Minutes toResilience)

Heroic Journey

It is helpful to view the process of cultivating BHI as a heroic journey.

It is helpful to some explorers of BHI to view the process of cultivating it as a heroic journey. Our journey in life is replete with obstacles and crises. The art of BHI and integral resilience is to learn to ride with them. The history of humankind is filled with archetypal role models beginning with Odysseus. Other epic historic figures are Hypatia, Cleopatra, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglas, Madame Curie, Ella Fitzgerald, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Nelson Mandela, Michael Tyson, and Mattie Stepanek; and in literature and film, Scarlet O’Hara, Moll Flanders, Jane Eyre, Beck Sharp, and Belizaire the Cajun. The bibliography contains a list of epic heroes, classical and modern, historic and fictional. But the real fun is to imagine yourself as the hero or heroine in your own very special life, surfing the waves. The Internet overflows with stories of ordinary people who have suffered terrible losses who preserved and rose to greatness. Their stories can soften our own travails and inspire us. (See for example the story of Mama Marie Goretti Amurere whose children were murdered and who saved her life by caring for the orphans of others).
