We believe that we live in a democratic soiety, meaning that our elected representatives, represent the needs of the people. It is articulated that we can just vote out a person or party and that change will occur.

But what if the problems lies in the structure and that just voting out a person or party may not change things, the status quo continues.

Let us look at the recent oil rig exploding and the oil that has now approached the land. Lots of finger pointing going on, yet to me, I wonder about all this. Why has there not be a push toward a more cleaner sustainable system, why does mother nature always have to be under attack and threatened. Aborignal and indigieious communiteis lived within their means and with nature. Are we not killing ourselves. I think we have lots to learn from these old ways

Change must come but we need vision and leadership, maybe that will come under a different package, than what we currently have.
