people, tend to, from a young age, become dominant
thinkers, with the exception that both
access interhemispheric, and graduated, thought.

The 'Charting the Course' education proposal
shares a vision for a school system that will help all character-types, including people who are dominant left-brained thinkers, who think more linearly, and who are dominant right-brained thinkers, who think more by association, in part by bringing them together into one classroom.

The proposal is also for a single, closed, holistic system, which interweaves the modern education system with holistic, closed systems of the world.

Article - Opinion

An American Reconstruction Department
By Yasha Melanie Husain
December 29, 2012

A logical next step for the Obama Administration and its efforts to triumph against the challenges of the 21st century, is, strategically speaking, the creation of an American Reconstruction Department, a Franklin Roosevelt-type initiative.

All wings of the proposed Reconstruction effort, listed below, would be carried out concurrently by diverse teams of experts, the heads of which meet bi-monthly. Expenditures will come chiefly from already distributed, or budgeted, dollars, in exception of R&D and special projects, e.g. pilot projects, including ones that meet the needs of poor, underserved or polluted communities.

For each wing of the department, there will be three "well-schooled" and "well-rounded" experts with a specialty in their field area, be it, for clean energy, wind, solar or geothermal. Each will be a holistic, which also implies, global, thinker, in their own right, but above them will still be a world-class expert, who is firstly a holistic and global thinker, whose job it is to arrive at the most common sense energy solutions for localities, regions and the nation, with the rest of his or her team, or panel, and the nation.

The panel of the Clean Energy wing would, for example, work in coordination with the Department of Energy. It would have a specially appointed person to work with think tanks, and the media, to get the word out of the progress of the Department. The panel member's closest relationships would be to Congress, as selected Congress members would be asked to help write legislation, and all of Congress would act as constant liaison between the nation's people and the Reconstruction Department.

The head of the Reconstruction Department may be a residing Senator or Congressperson.

In light of climate change and the international economy, domestic and world affairs would largely be tackled with the follow-through of an American Reconstruction Department.

The idea for the Department comes not only from Roosevelt's defeat of the Great Depression, but from Japan, which in the wake of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, and in response to its environmental demands, instituted a nationwide, regional and community-based reconstruction effort, according to Habitat for Humanity, which ran a special ad about Japan in Bloomberg Businessweek (Oct. 22-28, 2012).

It's true that after the 2008 financial crisis has wound down, Obama's in earnest planning stage is finally upon us. No better time, then, to start the ambitious goal setting, based on a long range vision, with a centralized department, with outreach capacity to communities across the nation, and world.

The logical next step in the Obama Administration's efforts to promote change is an American Reconstruction Department, that could be replicated internationally, its various wings:

I. Clean Energy Projects

II. Sound Design Materials

III. Graduated Engineering

IV. Architecture and Design

V. Aviation, Rail and Vehicular Design and Transfer

VI. Holistic Farming

VII. Remediation

VIII. Environmental Monitoring

IX. Technology Transfer

X. Emergent Education, Adapting to 21st Century Needs, Including Job Creation

XI. Integrative, Holistic Medicine

XII. Cognitive and Behavioral Health Advancements, Thinking Out-of-the-Box

XIII. Mixing of Economies

XIV. Cross Cultural Exchange for the Continuation of Cultural Heritage

XV. Global Participation

XVI. Development

Clean Energy Projects:

Involves connecting a minimalist grid to homes, interior buildings (schools and offices), vehicles, and independent infrastructure projects, while relying on independent energy producers by locality and region.

Read the Seeing Our Way to the Future, 21st century holistic solutions opinion article, “Energy from the Sun,” for a preliminary outlaying of how we might in the near future address our clean energy advancements.

Sound Design Materials:

Further realizing William McDonough's and Michael Braungart's, Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the way we make things, by which future design materials, for manufacturing, construction and retail, are both nontoxic and recyclable.

Graduated Engineering:

Examining procedures, and uses, of advanced engineering methodologies, including nanotech, for their holistic promise.

Architecture and Design:

Involves improving and expanding on the LEEDs initiative, creating greater diversity of renewable energy use and energy efficiency, and greater savings in terms of raw materials.

Aviation, Rail and Vehicular Design and Transfer:

Strengthening efforts to transition to lightweight materials, like carbon fiber; creating more aerodynamic vehicles; conducting battery research and green manufacture; designing high-speed rail and new and improved public transit systems, and maintaining vehicular transfer scheduling, involving environmentally strategic mapping of plane, rail and vehicular transit routes.

Holistic Farming:

Creating approaches, to be used as official guidelines, that incorporate only sound science, with holistic farming methods.


Coordinating remediation efforts at sites across the nation.

Read the Seeing Our Way to the Future, 21st century holistic solutions Science Debate, “Biomass from Poplar Trees,” for more information about the potential for remediation to clean up our polluted areas.

Environmental Monitoring:

Orchestrating the monitoring of water sources, including those affected by agricultural runoff, manufacturing, sewage and carbon pollution, at the aquifier, stream, river, lake and oceanic levels.

Investigating ongoing and developing environmental risks, and overseeing the implementation of sophisticated strategies, for instance, for the prevention of pollution from the building of roads and nanotechnology.

Technology Transfer:

Revamps the nuclear establishment so that it heads off low and high-level residual wastes from old nuclear sites, closes defunct nuclear platforms, and transitions itself, and its scientists, to a clean energy future.

Emergent Education, Adapting to 21st Century Needs, Including Job Creation:

Adapting to 21st century needs, including that of job creation, by way of introducing a new paradigm for educating students, that serves dominant left- and right-brained people equally and beneficially.

The Holistic Solutions Think Tank's 'Charting the Course' closed, holistic education proposal is featured in the book, Holistic Living: Tips for Youth, and on the Seeing Our Way to the Future, 21st century holistic solutions website, where it's listed as the Holistic Living: Tips for Youth book excerpt.

The Holistic Solutions Think Tank has described, as well, suggested reports it plans to issue and undertake on behalf of the realization of the 'Charting the Course' change that's recommended.

Integrative, Holistic Medicine:

Improves prevention and health care by directing R&D and hospital administration toward immunological defense in a sophisticated integrative health care package that relies on networks of holistic doctors, domestic and international.

Heads the effort to reduce wasted expenditures on unnecessary resources and badly managed time-allocation, by streamlining, making more value-dependent and productive, doctor-patient relationships.

For a preliminary analysis, read the Seeing Our Way to the Future, 21st century holistic solutions opinion article, “Saving money in healthcare,” for more on how we might improve health care and promote a truly integrative medical system. You may also read the book, Holistic Living: Tips for Youth, which talks about many aspects of the integrative health care field.

Developing Cognitive and Behavioral Health Advancements, Thinking Out-of-the-Box:

Creating a spectrum to be used by modern psychology that is based on whole brain thinking and dominant left- and right-brained thinking, and that also emphasizes the role creativity can, and does, play, in creating lifelong balance and contentment, for every individual, and community. Modern psychology may also increasingly be enhanced by the study and integration of the Enneagram system and Ayurveda.

Mixing of Economies:

Involving the creation of initiatives that reflect the needs of the 21st century, internationally, that are also based on findings pertinent to the Reconstruction Department's end goals, still steeped in the long view of Keynesian economics, combined with market liberalism.

Developing international trade and commerce legislation in line with 21st century socio-political and economic needs.

The mixing of local, regional, state and international economies is both an outgrowth of globalization and an ultimate retrenchment to self-sustaining, localized, economic order.

Economics must explore the hinterland between progress and self-maintenance, to arrive at the most radical of solutions for world societies, whether developed or developing.

For a preliminary analysis, read the articles, “'Worldfocus' in Denmark: A People's Green Energy Model,” "A Smart Economy," and "A Voice on Free Trade," for more on how we might perhaps replicate and perceive socioeconomics and its related policy. The articles are listed at the Seeing Our Way to the Future, 21st century holistic solutions website. You may also read, in the book, The New Village: Finding Holistic Solutions, a brief contrast and comparison about the developing and developed world.

Cross Cultural Exchange for the Continuation of Cultural Heritage:

Facilitating the healthy exchange of ideas,
and continuation of cultural heritage, worldwide.

Global Participation:

Offering information sharing, and also the outgrowth of the American Reconstruction Department model to other countries.

Coordinating with governments, from around the world, their participation in a similar effort to the Department, with similar programs and directives, having diplomats help, too, to ensure efforts are tailored to the specific environmental and sociocultural needs of a country.


Working with developing nations, and also “assisting” in ensuring they are financially aided according to each home nation's global responsibilities, to help specifically with modernization of infrastructures in line with green technologies and sustainability, that complement the holistic community.
