This article, adapted from a previous piece and published in the Whole Earth Review, describes strategies for establishing effective security. It offers political, economic, and environmental strategies for ensuring worldwide security. The author provides a formula for security that addresses the root causes of terrorism, support sustainable societies, achieve energy independence with existing technology, develop non-provocative defense, make other nations feel more secure, and save money for urgent social causes. He argues that any global security strategy must consider multiple components: political, diplomatic, informational, humanitarian, economic, and military.
