How we choose to recover will set the tone for the next century

What is required is a new foundation, a new American story that redeems everyone who has been forced to accept that their value, the meaning of their lives is defined primarily in economic terms, to survive and to recover into a new future. We have been sold this idea slowly over the course of generations but are now at the peak of the exploitation of humanity as an economic input, as a unit of labor for the purpose of creating wealth at the expense of meaning and our spiritual lives. We don’t want to go back: we want to be free.
