newMoon juxtaposes Nemo's Mind in many dualities. It is Nemo
who only directly aggresses the problem, while newMoon strives to
pressure the cause of the problem. One fights injustice in a
masculine way and the other seeks understanding through the
feminine. Is one better than the other or does the world need the
balance of both? One method has been tested to death by organisms
believing they are in the right.

newMoon's direct aim is to enhance a
positive personal power in influencing those directly around us.
While Nemo's Mind is the way of art to expose the weaknesses in the human
character that will abhor oppression and at the same time oppress those
next to them. These partners hope to strengthen the other.

The success of socially conscious organizations have been limited

local philosophy doesn't interfere with already existing approaches,
which, are at times, competing against each other for finances and

prose used. It is extremely difficult to tone down socially
conscious essays and to propose the Nets insidious tendency to
homogenize the world culture as a positive. newMoon is a theme to push all web ventures to internalize socially

Why humanity first in our priorities, versus animal rights and the
health of the environment? You can’t help the endangered or

little more energy toward the human element behind "our" problems.

| gender disparity - culture global
newMoon is partly a proposal that a problem such as
environmental abuse is a direct reflection of respect for the fellow
human being. If there is a lack of respect for the family member then
that culture is crippled in a hundred ways. The
single greatest crime against humanity is world
wide inequality for women - this is the correlation directly showing any cultures ability
to respect any entity: environment, development, human rights - the
country a woman lives in, dictates whether they are paid less in one
modern country or whether gender is an automatic violence risk factor in a 3rd
world nation. A theme of newMoon is that women
will always be treated cruelly as property through out the world, as
long as the best, role model countries, still have inequalities
in economic or status positions. But these modern
countries are still great role models for women around the
globe, through global media.
Is the mild separatism
of women on the Net helpful? The glaring most obvious indicator
in the modern nation is pay equality. Until that index changes for the
better, then women must continually group and or fight for their rights.
Some will look for the arguments against this, but in a
global challenge - the rights, and the organization to advance them, is the
model for those struggling under oppression in another country -
yearly, the lifestyle of modern countries is increasingly visible to
the undeveloped - and every year more 3rd world women are banding.
this sense, globalism. or the subduing of local cultures under the
growth of global culture is positive. The outlook that the global
culture is one organism, and the culture we are in at the moment, is
influencing all others. Many rankle at the thought
of changing sub-cultures. Maybe it helps to look at your own
particular society and ask how the present culture compares to the same
of just one century ago. Nothing is preserved and all improves
for the better, in the glass is half full mentality. And nothing
is sacred when women, children, and the Earth is in abuse. The
universal question is whether the abuse will improve or worsen as
the population doubles over the next 40 years

the overall global culture has an evolving level of human rights, so
does the health of the environment in that culture. Drag the
cultures committing the most crimes against humanity to a higher
standard by continuing to push our own culture to the next level.
More respect for the ones around us is also a focus on a problem
out of our sight. This means daily local impact - maybe this is
just saying be nicer to people you deal with daily - maybe it means
getting involved with improving the local culture through something
Time for an example? You can’t free the slaves in ________ before
you free the slaves in the democratic nations - for instance, few
Americans realize the scope of the slavery within their own shores
- few around the world are aware of the scope of slavery and oppression
through out the world. What is the most valuable thing you
can do about this? To be socially conscious means a consistent education
of self and others around you. And to Improve your own conscious lifestyle - and your
neighbors will improve. By newMoon this means improving
lifestyle in a human dignity way.
newMoon means to do some level of interaction with your personal
humanistic cause, on a local and global level - treat the ones you live
with better and it will spread - respect for humanity is shown through
respect for the ones you live and work with - and the ones you meet
for only one moment in your life - if you have a lifestyle that
permits you to read these words then your priorities go high above
just survival needs and can afford to treat others with ultimate respect. Until
violence disappears from our streets - you can’t expect change
around the next corner. Environmentally how can you save the forests
of Brazil if we can’t save the Everglades. And if we are finally
arresting the erosion of the Everglades is it a cultural evolvement?
On the local level: if you encounter or dish out rudeness your self on
a daily basis then we can’t expect things to imrove elsewhere...

A fundamental concept of altruism: To make change in anything
first requires change within the self. If you are having impact,
