Altered Visions: Rx for America in the 21St Century
America has been a fortunate land, as Will Rogers noted. If we needed to build a house, there was all the wood at hand; if we wanted coal or iron, there was aplenty for the scratching, or if we sought oil, all we had to do was stick a pipe in the ground. But, as he said, we would find out how smart we were when all that came to an end. And that is what is happening. Nothing lasts forever except change, and denial that the future will be different is simply dysfunctional. There is Global Warming, pollution, and running out of resources, which will come to control us painfully if we will not face up to them. Altered Visions are not an option.
