For anyone who is still in the dark about Occupy Wall Street, or the Arab Spring, here is a great article. This man took many of my thoughts and organized them into a thoughtful and substantive essay. We are in a time of correction. The world is wildly out of balance. We're literally killing ourselves and our planet, and now we need to try and fix it.
We're never going back to an economy driven by insatiable appetites for stuff bought with debt. We're over that. It's time for our economists to start thinking of a new paradigm. We're the 99%'ers, and even if we're doing okay in this economy, all we have to do is look around to confirm the inequity. We're at the end of a monetary system that excludes 99% of its population. One that indebts its children for years, just for an education. Or takes the elderly person's home to pay for healthcare. Our systems are failing us.
Time for our politicians to hop on board, or move aside. After all, they're supposed to be working for us - not the next big corporate donor.
A new wind is blowing. It is the wind of change, and it will not be stopped. It's time to start designing a new world based on unity and fairness, one that supersedes borders and boundaries, having nothing to do with religion, race, culture, or color. Where all people, everywhere, are important and matter. A world that is grateful,appreciative, and respectful of its home planet. Nothing less will do.
So, put on your thinking cap. I think we're going to need it.
