What Is Our New Shared Vision?
Are we still going to accept the shared vision that got us to this point?
Or are we going to actively design the vision we want to see?
Our old shared vision had competition over finite resources.
Can we create new ways of using and recycling what’s left in a way that is compassionate and takes care of everyone?
Our old vision had better living conditions for people based on their ability to control tax dollars.
Can we create laws that are favorable to everyone?
Our old vision had better educational resources based on neighborhood tax dollars, as well.
Can we create a new vision that includes equality, liberty and fraternity for everyone and values our young people as the most important investment a country can make?
Ca we create an economic system based on cooperatives where people have a say in their employment and its policies?
Can we create an practice which values each person’s individuality and helps promote it?
If we can imagine it and write about it and converse about it, we can redesign it.
Let’s get to it.
