We enter the dawn of this new year and decade with all manner of people and organisations issuing calls to action. It's not just a sign of the times. It's also a sign that much of what we've done over the last half century has taken us to a critical position, while never far from another world war, a lot closer to environmental and social disintegration.
It probably won't have escaped you that 2020 is also the visual acuity measurement taken to represent perfect vision, which is exactly what we need if we’re going to take giant leaps to heal ourselves and our environment this year. It is also clear that the initiators of food, political, environmental and health change are going to be the people, not governments or corporations. We will all need to work together to turn the corporatocracy's supertanker that has been leading us to the abyss.
From our vantage point, after 18 years at the vanguard of natural and sustainable health, we see how ANH-Intl can play its part in the changes that must come if we are to survive and flourish. As a team, we’re excited about creating a sustainable future and we have high hopes for this year and beyond as more people come on board to make our shared vision a reality.
But we’re asking for your help in creating a ‘2020 vision’ that also reflects your priorities across 5 distinct, powerful, yet connected, areas — Food, Healthcare, Politics, Environment and Natural Health.
Your responses (which are anonymous) will help us understand your priorities in these areas so that our work can better represent our shared vision and goals. It will also give us important information for our campaigns, research and education activities and our engagement with policy makers and elected representatives. We’ll share the results after the survey closes.
The survey will only take around 5-10 mins of your time and will close on 31 January 2020. Please share with your networks so we can reach as wide and diverse a range of people as possible.
Thank you. Together, we really are a force to be reckoned with.

Quite difficult to choose in places. Some answers rated equally, others not at all.....but I did my best to be honest!!!

In the age of 'nudging' that frames responses by the way the questions or forms are framed. I feel it important to be consistent.
I started in willingness and gave up when I found my 1s were meaning the opposite to what I thought.
Assuming I managed to correctly mark what I meant within the increasing or decreasing that 1 or 8 could signify - I am none the less framed in the digital or binary fields of the form.
As if the terms you use have a clearcut and unambiguous meaning in a world of doublethink.
So count me as 'Other' - because discernment has no room within your census.
The framing of the narrative is the primary deceit under which we dysfunction.
In an individual we may call this egocentricity.
In global intent to control people and peoples via full spectrum dominance - under guise of science, journalism, or social care - it takes monstrous forms.
But its all about possession and control - in the hidden context of fear of total dispossession and total loss of control.
When a new form of embodied expression grows alongside the pupation of the caterpillar, it shares the same DNA, and life support and yet a shift occurs from old to new.
To frame this in aborted terms, when the new is given no place, the energy runs morbid and can become encapsulated as a cancer in the body - sharing the same DNA and life support - and sacrifices the new to the old.
Do we have a choice as to whether to fear Life as pain of loss and armour against it? Or move through our fears to recognise Life in the living?
Seeking to evade our fears will define our seeking and finding - until they re-emerge from the illusion we had escaped or eradicated them.
Honesty to our fears or hates is an honourable starting place. Blame culture aborts the movement of any true communication. So lets all fit ourselves into a form or a system of conflict (sickness) management - and give it a good cover story.
I'm not without feeling for your position in trying to change the system from within.
But have NO voice within the form.

I struggled through the first two questions wondering why numbers kept disappearing when I rated the statements. It took me a while to work out that they had to be ranked and only one number could be used for each (rather than rating each out of 8). I reread the instructions and worked it out. I'm not sure if I am just having a really dumb day but I feel that despite the instructions saying what is necessary, it needs more emphasis on what to do and what not to do.
