Module I: Framing The Old Paradigm


Video from Session 1:
Our Core Philosophy

Video from Session 2:
Flexing Power Through Social Constructs

In this session, participants learn how the three distorted notions of power (greed, dominance and exploitation) form the basis for economic systems that create and depend upon human hierarchy, division and suppression while selling the false promise of upward mobility to the masses.
