Excellent statement by John Robbins! The one good thing about the interest in Thrive is that it is a sign that thousands of people in the USA are again questioning the fundamental capitalist, greed-is-good basis of our economic system. After being shut out of public discourse for decades suddenly there is an audience for those who propose alternatives to that bankrupt system. We can insist that community, collaboration, mutual benefit, social wealth, kindness, transparency, accountability and basic fairness be at the heart of those alternatives.
I think the "occupy" movement created this opening. Let us cultivate and treasure it.
