EAST HARTFORD, Conn., July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The same thinking that used to protect us from wild animals and marauding invaders—tribal thinking—is increasingly placing the world in a precarious place. So says Donald Pet, of East Harford, a psychiatrist who is dedicating his retirement to promoting world peace through his nonprofit The Educational Community.
Pet cites both Britain's exit from the European Union and Donald Trump's rise to Republican presidential nominee as evidence of tribal thinking run amuck. "Donald Trump is one of the most tribal people we can imagine," Pet says. "And Brexit is a call to national unity; it's territorial. The Brits don't want to be part of a larger system. But we are no longer tribes. We are interrelated and we need to solve our interrelated problems."
Pet can talk about:
- How we are all born to think "my way is the only right way," the hallmark of tribal thinking.
- Why if Trump is elected, it wouldn't be long before we enter into a war.
- How that war could end in ultimate destruction.
- How Albert Einstein can help solve the biggest puzzle we face.
- Powerful things ordinary people can do to create a safer world.
Praise for Donald Pet
"I love what you are doing. I think it is really important that we all kind of wake up out of our doldrums. We're asleep not just about war but about everything … and these same principles you are talking about open us up to the possibility of being fully human, which most of us haven't stepped into."—Jack Canfield, bestselling author, "Chicken Soup for the Soul"
