Social Visionary Calls on Wealthy to Underwrite Environmental/Economic Justice

Visitors to Los Angeles City Hall will now see a banner reading "Dear Billionaire" outside the entrance--and beneath it, a quiet man determined to make a difference. Nicholas Frank, an 82-year-old L.A. resident, has spent a lifetime developing a social theory and action plan designed to save humanity from itselflong before billionaires like Mike Bloomberg and Jeff Bezos announced significant green initiatives in 2020.

"I see civilization and the natural world on the expressway to extinction," says Frank. His recommendation? Reconstructing "the ways we live, work, commute, produce, consume, educate and govern ourselves, in the interest of building our future of resilient peaceful systemic sustainability." Without it, climate-friendly economic security and social justice will not be possible.

After decades of searching for a comprehensive solution to the world's problems combined with a wealth of personal experience from surviving fascism, World War II, and a harrowing escape from communist Hungary to democracy in America Frank has envisioned in elaborate detail a hybrid societal organizing system, based on nature's "building and sustainability code". The system, he says, can be rolled out one live/work community at a time, through the development of "Holigent Villages." Later this year he will begin to build a hands-on educational demonstration project in Central Europe, providing a substantial part of his family's life savings, and he is calling on the wealthiest members of society to pitch in too.

To read the letter "Dear Billionaire" and learn more about Holigent Reconstruct America, Europe, the World visit Holigent.org. Frank and his banner can be found outside Los Angeles City Hall Tuesdays and Fridays from 2 to 4 pm.
