Can you imagine a world where all the issues you care about have been worked through and there is justice, fairness, safe food and environment, clean, untainted elections?
Looking up, forward, we have a long way to go, but
while the leaves may seem bare now, spring may arrive
before we know it.
Is it possible for you to imagine a world where people who protest, who call for justice, for a better world are honored and valued, even rewarded and given special recognition, rather than arrested and jailed?
Can you imagine a world where all people are treated with fairness, where the nation's resources are not exploited by two percent of the population, who get rich off the rest of the people. There's still room for great success, but not dynastic wealth that grows to anti-human, destructive levels.
Are you able to imagine a world where corporations no longer have rights to be treated as humans as they now are.
Can you imagine a world where elections are honest and really recountable, where funding is strictly controlled so the wealthy and powerful don't have an advantage and can't game the system.
Is it possible for you to imagine a world where the forests, oceans, rivers and skies are getting cleaner and purer each year, where the atmosphere is not being polluted and global warming has been faced and dealt with sternly and effectively.
Can you picture a congress where legislators represent their constituents' interests and are held accountable-- even senators?
Can you see a world where education and health are a right for all, not just the wealthy, and where no-one dies or loses their home because of lack of health insurance?
Is it possible for you to imagine a world where guns are effectively controlled so gun killings and shootings are drastically cut?
Can you imagine a world where women have the right to control their bodies and resources and support systems are available to care for unwanted babies?
Can you picture a mainstream media that does it's job, that asks the hard questions, that doesn't allow easy passes and covers the stories that should be told?
Can you imagine a world where top-down control is fading away and being replaced by bottom-up processes and systems where we all have the right to a role in deciding and getting things done?
