Envision the militaries of the world uniting to serve the planet.

“Armies can be both the instruments of destruction and the guardians of humanity's evolution. The warrior monk's role is to protect the possible and to nurture the generate workable international solutions... to defuse the nuclear time bomb.  We must wisely use energy, enforce ecological balance, assist with appropriate technological expansion and above all – strive for human development, in ourselves and in others. I invite each of you, soldier and civilian, to become an evolutionary, and to adopt the code of ethics of the warrior monk.” 

-Jim Channon, Commander,

First Earth Battalion

Evolutionary Tactics is a 150 page illustrated field manual, created by Lieutenant Colonel Jim Channon for the U. S. Army’s First Earth Battalion.  As a member of a strategic think-tank, Channon envisioned soldiers of the future developing an evolutionary and extra-ordinary skill set with a high-minded global code of ethics.

The manual illustrates these high performance concepts and evolutionary ideas. It was originally passed on officer-to-officer via photocopy and has since become something of a collector’s item.

Now you can obtain a rare copy as an e-book. Its pages are filled with curious artistic renderings, cartoons, and out-of-the-ordinary ideas. This is the manual as seen in the movie “The Men Who Stare at Goats.” Over 10,000 copies have been downloaded from the web. download your own copy today $14.95 

“Evolutionary Tactics reads like a Whole Earth Catalog for military leaders.”

Channon’s vision for the militaries of the world is far-reaching and includes the idea that they work in concert to address the environmental stresses on the planet in a program he calls Operation Noble Steward. “We had a Marshall plan after WWII to rebuild Europe and Japan, and today we need something along these lines to recover the Earth’s biosphere,” he says. “I have been in the classroom with the future generals of the planet from eleven nations discussing just such a global operation.”

Channon is a true visionary and one of the most active green social architects and strategic designers on the planet; his ideas reach 100 years and beyond.  For the real story and history of the First Earth Battalion, explore our websites and discover how its founder Jim Channon has taken these powerful ideals, and more, into the future.
