Right now, we are at a tipping point environmentally and socially. We can either accept that radical change is unavoidable, assume responsibility for shaping that change, come together, and use our wits to innovate real solutions to our problems, or we can all revert to being savages wresting the last resources away from each other by brute force until there are no resources left to fight over. That is our only choice. Remaining in denial about reality means, by default, choosing savagery. Six months ago we started evolving; now we are devolving again.
For a few weeks last fall people remembered what it means to belong to one community and stand together, not only for personal gain, but for our mutual health, happiness, and well-being. We need to reclaim that--not only for ourselves, but for us all.
