Don’t give away your power and think that you need a strong leader to guide you somewhere. The 21st century will be the century of the common people. We will have to learn how to be strong together. We will also have to understand that problems elsewhere in the world are also our problems because we have become totally global in our dependencies on recourses. We also have to find ways to be more self sustainable in our communities and learn to stop our destructive addiction to fossil fuels. Now is the time for real change in our world – but it is of uttermost importance that we know what we want instead of the system many of us have come to see as working against us. Maybe those of us that see things that way should start to work on the “Constitution of the World”. Make a roadmap together for the future. I encourage someone out there to start. I will join.
