Club of Rome's "The First Global Revolution" book 1991
In 1991, the club published The First Global Revolution. It analyses the problems of humanity, calling these collectively... the "problematique". It notes that, historically, social or political unity has commonly been motivated by enemies in common: "The need for enemies seems to be a common historical factor. Some states have striven to overcome domestic failure and internal contradictions by blaming external enemies... Bring the divided nation together to face an outside enemy, either a real one, or else one invented for the purpose... In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill. In their totality and their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which must be confronted by everyone together. But in designating these dangers as the enemy, we fall into the trap... namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes, and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy then is humanity itself." ~ Alexander King & Bertrand Schneider
