An old Chinese proverb carries this advice: “If we do not change our direction, we are likely to end up where we are headed.”
As we look around us this summer, it is clear that we badly need to change direction. From the massive oil spill devastating the Gulf, to the Wall Street bailouts, Main Street layoffs, and skyrocketing health care costs — the jury is in. Our leaders are taking us down the wrong path. We need change now.
