Your opportunities are limitless. Tomorrow is a new day. Just let your worries slip away for a moment. Smile because you don't know whose day it will brighten. Smile because you can and you deserve to be happy. Smile and know that you are loved. xx

How poetic, thank you.

Growth for Growth's Sake Will Kill Us All?    ⇢

Thought provoking piece by Al Jazeera guest writer questions the limits of perpetual economic growth. What do you think?

Aggressive growth is impossible ecologically and implausible economically. We need economic strategies at the local, state and national levels that prioritize community benefit over corporate gain, and which presume a need for local resiliency instead of depending on uncontrolled growth. We also need to develop new strategies to democratize wealth in the face of extreme inequality.

Like the programs developed in “the state and local laboratories of democracy” that led to the New Deal, numerous experiments percolating across the country in the “new economy” — building cooperative and community-owned businesses, developing locally focused supply chains at a municipal and regional level, building new forms for public ownership of essential services like banking and power generation — may just point the way.

The end of growth poses a long-term systemic challenge, and such explorations suggest that a new direction may be quietly being explored in the midst of economic and ecological degradation. It is a direction that is likely to accelerate as economic and social pain of the decaying economic system continues to force Americans to explore solutions that take us beyond the tired nostrums of the past.”

Gar Alperovitz is a professor of political economy at the University of Maryland and a founder of the Democracy Collaborative. He is the author of “What Then Must We Do?: Straight Talk about the Next American Revolution.”

This is the Memorial to the Missing and contains over 50,000,000 pennies to represent the lives of each American child abandoned to abortion by a society and a culture that has embraced their destruction. We must prevent the need to add to this memorial. Take a stand. Get involved.
 ”How we treat the least of us defines us.”

"should I use this $500k to help struggling parents and pregnant people or should I put it in a glass box"

"how should we address an issue that disproportionately affects the poor? I know! Let’s literally flaunt money that they’ll never have!" Brilliant.

I can’t help but think that this ‘memorial’ wasn’t particularly well thought through.
