“Peace is the way. The Revolution is in between Your Ears. Re-Contextualizing History… One Episode at a Time. Peace Revolution is a self-study curriculum produced by Tragedy and Hope dot com and funded by the Subscribers to the Tragedy and Hope Online Research and Development Community.
“Supporting T&H allows Peace Revolution to remain free of commercials and advertisements….Since 2006, we have created over 500+ hours of educational information in audio and video productions of the highest-academic quality, and we have presented it for FREE, to millions of individuals around the world; many of whom are desperate to encounter and integrate such information.
“Your support enables us so that we can continue producing projects which enable Cognitive Liberty.” Read more.

Tragedy and Hope provides a portal through which individuals can discover, identify, and integrate useful tools, resources, and activities which stimulate and fortify Cognitive Liberty, providing primary sources, research, and educational methods which facilitate consciousness.
Tragedy and Hope’s purpose is to enable individuals to research and form groups of independent thinkers to solve humanity’s most pressing problems, by identifying the etiology (study of the cause-and-effect origins) and thus understanding our way toward the solutions we seek.
Tragedy and Hope’s form and function (free to the public) enables hundreds-of-thousands of people around the world, to experience open-source education without upper-limits, and it is therein where the solutions are discovered- by making the problems truly known and understood at a root-cause level.
“Therefore, it would seem logical that by expanding our awareness in order to understand the problems, that therein we would discover the solutions. Having identified a myriad of solutions to the major problems that plague our society, it seemed logical next to create a vehicle through which to share the wisdom accumulated from the process of expanding our awareness.”
Tragedy and Hope creates, produces, and publishes educational content to help adults understand the world they live in and thereby, develop true self-confidence and serenity of mind; our content focuses on history, philosophy, economics, anthropology, science, communications, and every topic which pertains to learning how to survive and thrive in this world.
Tragedy and Hope is funded by those who tune-in to our productions, and the members of the Tragedy and Hope online critical thinking and research community, who subscribe after witnessing the value provided, and voluntarily deciding to contribute in a way to ensure we can continue producing educational media with integrity and consistency. Sacrifice the Tragedy, Preserve the Hope.
‘”We can all agree that there are major problems in our world. These problems exist and persist because we are ignorant to the root cause which empowers them; this ignorance or sense of pseudo-knowing blocks our understanding.”
From Richard Grove: As a student of futurism and technology, I have read and heard many suggestions over the years that the human race lacks the focus and or intellect to actually solve many of the problems facing our world today. Indeed, it is not hard to see the evidence of this. Futurists claim we will need powerful supercomputers with artificial intelligence to help us find a way forward. I happen to agree when I look at our current problem solving skills.
“Our governmental/societal systems are simply full of self-serving and corrupt people/organizations who are too busy trying to reach their own goals to help the human race as a whole reach critical goals. Many of us see the problems, and we have great solutions for these problems, yet getting an organized effort together for a real resolution to be put in place is nearly impossible due to the various human and systemic walls you run into along the way. One need look no further than the US Congress which is completely unable to solve any major problem facing our country. The same issues are tossed around year after year, decade after decade. Some of these issues are health care, the economy, social security, and how to fix our neglected, crumbling national infrastructure -buildings, bridges, railways, roads, schools, airports, etc.
“Part of the historical inspiration for Tragedy and Hope and its publication of independent media is due to what we’ve learned from History… specifically, CENSORED History.” Richard Grove
“If we cannot come together and solve these issues, how can we ever hope to accomplish even bigger goals such as ending world starvation and poverty, ending war, cleaning up the environment, etc? The human race must find solutions to these issues, but first we must fix the foundation of our thinking process.”
Rare 1974 interview with Prof. Carroll Quigley, author of: Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time (1966)
Note: The book discussed is available to download in its entirety here. Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time (1966) by Prof. Carroll Quigley
Carroll Quigley, professor of history at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University, formerly taught at Princeton and at Harvard. He has done research in the archives of France, Italy, and England, and is the author of the widely praised Evolution of Civilizations. A member of the editorial board of the monthly Current History, he is a frequent lecturer and consultant for public and semipublic agencies. He is a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Anthropological and the American Economic Association, as well as various historical associations.
“Quigley has been lecturer on Russian history at the Industrial College of the Armed Forces since 1951 and on Africa at the Brookings Institute since 1961, and has lectured at many other places, including the U.S. Naval Weapons Laboratory, the Foreign Department, and the Naval College at Norfolk, Virginia. In 1958 he was a consultant to the Congressional Select Committee which set up the present national space agency.
“Quigley was collaborator in history to the Smithsonian Institution after 1957, in connection with the establishment of its new Museum of History and Technology. In the summer of 1964 he went to the Navy Post-Graduate School, Monterey, California, as a consultant to Project Seabed, which tried to visualize what American weapons would be like in twelve years.
“According to Professor Quigley:
“There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Group has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, of any other groups, and frequently does so. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960’s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected, but in the past and recently, to a few of its policies (notably to its belief that England was an Atlantic rather than a European Power and must be allied, or even federated, with the United States and must remain isolated from Europe), but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wished to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known.“ – from pg. 950 of Tragedy and Hope (1966)
“The powers of financial capitalism had a far-reaching plan, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.” – Carroll Quigley
Quigley was a leading member of the Council on Foreign Relations (and mentor of President Bill Clinton).
Tragedy and Hope illustrates the years 1895-1950 as a period of transition from the world dominated by Europe in the nineteenth century to the world of three blocs in the twentieth century. With clarity, perspective, and cumulative impact, Professor Quigley examines the nature of that transition through two world wars and worldwide economic depression. As an interpretive historian, he tries to show each event in the full complexity of its historical context.
The result is a unique work, notable in several ways. It gives a picture of the world in terms of influence of different cultures and outlooks upon each other; it shows, more completely than in any similar work, the influence of science and technology on human life; and it explains with unprecedented clarity, how the intricate financial and commercial patterns of the West prior to 1914 influenced the development of today’s world.
