How a life-valued versus money-valued dichotomy makes a world of indifference to peace!

How a life-valued versus money-valued dichotomy makes a world of money-valued indifference to peace, and how the cognitive maps of Carl Jung, Johan Galtung and John McMurtry make a world of life-valued difference to healing that indifference!

“That’s one small step for (away from money-valued) man, one giant leap for (life-valued) mankind.” – Adapted form quote by Neil Armstrong

Are the many facets of violence due to money-value contradicting life-valued coherence?

The Cancer Stage of Capitalism: From money-valued crisis to life-valued cure


  • Have we collectively inherited a money-valued as opposed to a life-valued collective unconscious?
    Does money-value enable cultural violence and disable cultural peace (peace-making)?
  • Have we personally acquired a money-valued or a life-valued personal unconscious?
    Does money-value enable direct violence and disable direct peace (peace-keeping)?
  • Have we structurally designed a money-valued or a life-valued consciousness?
    Does money-value enable structural violence and disable structural peace (peace-building)?

The following quotes give us intimations of the transcendental redeeming power of life-value over money-value:

  • “Never doubt that a small group of (life-valued) thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the (money-valued) world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
  • “For the master’s (money-valued) tools will never dismantle the master’s (money-valued) house. They may allow us to temporarily beat him at his own game, but they will never enable us to bring about genuine (life-valued) change.” – Audre Lorde
  • (Money-valued) darkness cannot drive out (money-valued) darkness; only (life-valued) light can do that. (Money-valued) hate cannot drive out (money-valued) hate; only (life-valued) love (or love of life values) can do that.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
