Love for One Another as a Foundation for Government

The following thoughts are from a post about a year ago, but with all that has happened in the world since then, it seems appropriate for today.


 Are Democrats and Republicans really parties of the people? No, they are actually slumber parties. Both staying up all night talking, not getting anything done.

The world is changing at such a rapid pace, innovation is everywhere, so why not in the government? We're running around in circles. Everybody is down on the gridlock in the government, and that's a good thing. Because we clearly need a new system for how to live together on this planet.

I really see something dramatically different in our future. How about a system based on love for one another? Why not? It's really age (the one we live in now) appropriate.

What would have happened if all that money given for corporate bail outs was given to citizens!
Bail us out of credit card debt, college loans, fuel bills, etc. How about giving me and my husband a a bonus for staying married, being good parents and law abiding citizens?
Something major has got to shift. The answers may be simplistic, but as an artist I know that the simpler the design, generally speaking, the better quality. When things are simple there is nothing to hide behind or within.
Simply put, if each person recognized the FACT of our interconnectedness, and internalized the concept of the oneness of humankind we would at least be pointing ourselves in a forward facing direction. This whole us against them gridlock in the world is really getting old. Wake up and smell today's coffee!
We're all in this together, aren't we?
