Thursday, November 8th, 2012 - Dick Smith
Australian entrepreneur and activist Dick Smith says, “His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales has sometimes been portrayed in our media as an eccentric who talks to his plants; however, the truth is quite the opposite.

"While our politicians in Australia lack leadership and our business leaders are obsessed with never-ending growth and bigger casinos, His Royal Highness is showing extraordinary leadership in major world issues,” Dick Smith says.

"His Royal Highness is a brave person with loads of common sense who is prepared to ‘say it how it is’. We all know that perpetual growth in population and the use of energy and resources is not sustainable in a finite world, yet our politicians are not game to tell us the truth."

In his recent book, “Harmony – A New Way of Looking at the World” (published in 2011), Prince Charles says:

“…there is a need to move towards the kind of economic thinking that promotes quality of life, rather than simply the quantity of consumption”.

“Perhaps now really is the moment to change our thinking, so that we can assess not only costs, but quality; … to measure sustainability as well as GDP and to elevate the emphasis on well-being rather than simply growth”

“I am afraid the very big cause of high birthrates remains cultural and this, of course, raises some very difficult moral questions”.

Dick Smith says:

“His Royal Highness has obviously thought deeply about these issues for over twenty years and has sensible answers, I believe.

"I ask His Royal Highness not to return to the U.K. where the important points made in his book are largely ignored by dopey British journalists, but to remain in Australia where His Royal Highness would find at least 80% of Aussies agree with what he is saying and share his vision for the future."
