We are blessed to be living at this time of the greatest revolution in history, the Consciousness Revolution. People around the world are waking up to the fact that we must transition from a Death Economy, based on wars and ravaging the earth, to a Life Economy, based on cleaning up pollution, helping hungry people feed themselves, creating new forms of energy, transportation, banking, and business in general. The 1% have screwed the rest of us and we are shaking ourselves awake!
