Pascal Etcheber (born August 2, 1963) is a French author and philosopher. He co-edited “Managing Sensitive Projects” published by Macmillan in the UK and Routledge in the US in 1998. .His Philosophy is outlined in “Vagabond Earth” (published by Substance Publishing in 2004). He purports that Human beings are driven by three essential needs: Freedom, Actions and Ethics, that the world is organized with Religions, Economics and Politics to apparently fulfill those needs. However, human beings can never find fulfillment because Freedom is lost by the obedience to laws; Actions are made useless by the belief that this world is meaningless compared to a higher, spiritual world or afterlife; Ethics is never attained because participation in economics does not lead into abundance for all but the success of a few to the detriment of the majority. “Vagabond Earth” proposes a blue print for a moneyless society of one world with no governments with people actively engaged in making this world a good place to live.
