About the Author
When he first spoke out against the Vietnam War in the mid-1960s, few Americans agreed with him. By the end of the decade, the majority opinion embraced his call to end the war in Vietnam and Cambodia. After the Paris peace accords were signed in 1973, he challenged his own political agenda during a speaking tour reported by all U.S. media networks and much of the foreign press. He announced he was leaving the coalition of organizations that had inspired a protest generation to pursue a different view of the future. In 1973, he stated that evolution would create the defining juncture for humanity in the new century.
In the 1980s, he was consultant to the largest U.S. syndication of equipment leasing and real estate and created comprehensive business strategies for numerous CEOs and senior executives of Fortune 500 companies. At that time, he also began a global search for highly gifted inventors holding breakthrough technologies. He assisted start-up companies in capital development and took them public. In addition, he worked with directors and senior management of diverse Fortune 500 companies in executive search, leadership training, financial planning, employee benefit design and executive outplacement.
He is the founder and chairman of the Foundation for Humanity creating new social and technology options for the 21st century. He is also the founder of the Humanity Fund and Ventures for Humanity, technology development companies providing organizational resources for the commercialization of breakthrough technologies.
