An Alternative: Alter America

That clock can be stopped. None of the foregoing scenarios is inevitable. A very different "Alter America" without the corpocracy and without the sadtistics can be built. For several years now I have been making detailed proposals toward that end. [18]. Nothing has come of them. Neither though, has much happened of any significance nationwide to begin reversing the sadtistics. And nothing but continued deterioration toward an abysmal future will come out of the general election of 2016; the twin parties are the two sides of the same corrupted coin. Consequently, I will briefly sketch in the remainder of this article a revised initiative, one that I will call here the "Alter America" campaign.

For the campaign to be successful there must be a shared vision; leadership in the form of stewardship; an organized and strategically guided effort with follow through; and a mobilization of public support.

Shared Vision

To Einstein imagination was more important in life than knowledge. Knowledge is limited to an understanding of what already exists. Imagination is an envisioning of an Alter America with the following attributes:

  • A democracy, not a corpocracy

  • Peacemaking, not war making

  • Domestically tranquil, not domestically violent

  • Economic justice, not injustice

  • Social justice, not injustice

  • Environmentally responsible, not irresponsible
