What Kind of World Do We Want?

There is choice in everything we do. This morning, I chose to take the bus to work. You might have chosen to ride a bike or drive a car or fly a helicopter. That choice may seem inconsequential. It is not. For the vehicles of our choosing become the destiny we seek to create.

Our federal government chooses death and destruction over diplomacy and a marketplace of ideas. Those remote strategists actively plan chaos as a means to implement order. The "establishment" seeks to maintain a power structure that disenfranchises those without political or financial capital so that those with it continue to accrue. These are choices that we allow our government to make for us. Do we choose to continue? Katrina taught many, but the lessons are daily, if we seek to find them. Alas, we haven't been doing our homework.
