Complete Society

Ideas and strategies for a sustainable world

43 Day Blog shift

43 Days.

That’s how much time we have to make sure the US makes one of the most important decisions ever for the future of not just our country, but also for the world.  My passion is in helping humanity achieve the complete society and right here, right now, there’s nothing that’ll make a bigger difference than who we elect for the next President.

Some may say this is exaggeration or melodrama.  That the President by himself doesn’t determine whether the whole world is living sustainably.  But in fact, the leader of the country responsible for the most climate change and wielding the most influence around the world has more power to determine our future than any other human being on the planet.

Financial crisis notwithstanding, the US economy and its endless consumption mentality determines much of the world’s economic activity and thus conducts or drives most of the world’s global warming activity.

So, while this is a blog about a sustainable green future, for the next 43 days, I’ll be focusing on the immediate present reality: the imperative to put Obama in the White House.

I haven’t dug into the candidates respective energy or climate change plans and I likely won’t for two reasons. The first, most obvious, reason is that these plans likely won’t survive past the first 100 days of either candidate’s Presidency.  The second is that its not plans that matter – its the mental approach.

Does the candidate approach decisions with rational, logic/science based facts and choose what’s best for the country?  This has been fundamentally missing for the last 8 years.  I trust Obama to bring that back in to the White House and trust McCain not one bit in this regard.

So, for the next 6 weeks, this’ll be the topic.  I’ll return to the primary focus for the Complete Society after November 4th.
