57. Brava! Very well said.
What's frightening is the number of people who can't think beyond the current conventions. To them "whatever is, is right".

Me, I think we should have a "charge card" that could be used for all basic necessities of a dignified life: water, food, clothing, shelter, edu, health, communication, and transport. A card that could be added to, in much the same way the electric grid can buy excess electricity from someone who has a windmill or solar cells. So someone who's a good gardener could "sell" her excess to the local grocery, teachers could offer courses, people who enjoy sewing could make clothing, etc.

I definitely think we're going to need to move in that direction *soon* if we want to stay in business as a species. Treating the world as an ATM machine for the few is killing us.
