At CCI, we see the need and possibility for changing this situation. When real people in large numbers get involved, amazing things begin to happen. Join us! Let's help reduce the tensions existing today between the two Superpowers.
Dear Friends and all who will receive this message,
People everywhere, regardless of party affiliation, are thinking …. and saying, ” What can we do to alter the out-of-control course in which our nation and our world finds itself!”
There is something we can do. It has been accomplished before–and we will implement it again. We have become aware that we can’t depend on national leadership–it has brought us to where we are today. Margaret Mead, America’s stellar anthropologist, after studying the movements of human history from early millenniums up to the 1970s, charged us with the following:
“Never doubt that a small group of ordinary citizens can change the world … indeed, it is the only thing that ever has ….”
Human beings, in small numbers, can influence hundreds, next thousands, then tens of thousands and even millions … and in the process alter the course of history. But the small numbers must start somewhere; without them the millions will never be reached.
Be part of the small numbers that gets the initial impetus started in our world today.

Nobody ‘stealing’ your jobs, you spend too much on wars, Alibaba founder tells US
The Chinese business magnate earlier in January met with US President-elect Donald Trump, who has bemoaned the loss of American industry and jobs due to the outsourcing of labor to countries like Mexico and China. Ma, however, has a different view of what is behind the US economic decline.
“Over the past thirty years, the Americans had thirteen wars spending 40.2 trillion dollars,” said Ma, speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos. “What if they spent a part of that money on building up the infrastructure, helping the white-collar and the blue-collar workers? No matter how strategically good it is, you’re supposed to spend money on your own people.”
