What we need is precisely what our current marketplace seems designed to resist... we need to BE A COMMUNITY.
No more spending hours on end watching fantasies on TV. Instead, go across the street, see if your neighbor needs help with any chores. See that
little girl, go get mom and dad and invite hem all over for a lemonade and talk about school.
Tell mom and dad all the things you've learned since last week. Call your brother or sister, and see how they are doing.
Invite 3 or 4 our your neighbors over to exchange ideas for a community garden. Find out who at work lives near you and carpool with them.
Community is about extending the common experience of your world with those of the people around you.
That is the beginning of the solution. There is no magic bullet. taking the "bad guys" out is unrealistic because they have already lined up the
next three generations of our serfdom.
It won't change until we all talk about it. Talking about it is the start of creating the next American community... the one that isn't a plaything
for the self-appointed elite.
