Troubled Moments…

Earth 2

“Well, along with everyone else, I have very troubled moments about the future of the United States and our society. And it would be foolish to say that I’ve got any easy answers. For those who can do it, one of the things to do is not to move. To stay put. Now staying put doesn’t mean don’t travel. But it means have a place and get involved in what can be done in that place. Because without that we’re not going to have a representative democracy that works in America. We’re in an oligarchy right now, not a democracy. Part of the reason that it slid into oligarchy is that nobody stays anywhere long enough to take responsibility for a local community and for a place.”
