From 2007 until the end of 2015, Forcing Change existed as a monthly, online publication dedicated to documenting and analyzing major paradigm shifts – political, religious, and social forces pushing for change. To that end, Forcing Change critically explored topics such as global governance, the political aspect of interfaithism, transhumanism as a rising intellectual movement, the influence of green spirituality, and the development of evolutionary culture.
Created and edited by Carl Teichrib – a Christian researcher on global transformation – Forcing Change employed a Biblical worldview in its reporting and analysis. The publication’s biases reflected an evangelical-Christian perspective, was pro-liberty versus politically imposed equality, pro-individualistic versus collectivism, and pro-free market.
At the close of 2015, the magazine and website was shuttered as Carl’s energies were channeled to the writing of his book, Game of Gods: The Temple of Man in the Age of Re-Enchantment.
Today, the Forcing Change website is a depository for Teichrib’s articles and reports, the entire collection of magazine back issues, media interviews, and other relevant materials.
