As I read through the comments on Rob Kall's article, Visions of a Positive Future vs Fixing a Pathological a Pathological Present, I wondered how others envision that future?

The issue, in my opinion, is inherent in the term authority. To be an authority is to author. "Author what?" We should ask. "Us?!" I would respond.

Yes, us! Our lives and the life of this entire planet are what the elite authors (top 1-10%) create. To be an authority is to define how YOUR story goes as well as everyone else.

Is this ok?

Consider the United States symbol of the pyramid on the back of the United States dollar. It is a pyramidal symbol that speaks to the Egyptian Pyramids. The idea of it being Egyptian is important given that Egypt is seen as one of the primary birth mothers of our modern day culture.

This pyramidal symbol IS the essence of western civilization.

As you look at your dollar bill, meditate on the pyramid symbol.
