What does the common good mean to you? For myself, it’s the reason we establish democracies with taxes to provide for the common good of all. Sadly, that doesn’t seem to be the thoughts of too many in our country. We have the ‘top elite’ and large corporations paying next to nothing in taxes, which in turn fuels the inequality of wealth and at the same time leads to a country unable to repair its infrastructure, slipping education and poverty at record levels not seen since the great depression.
How then do we get the mindset of our country to change? How do we get people to see that what we have now is more a corporacy than a democracy, and that until we learn to band together as a ‘team’ and work for the ‘common good’, we will continue our spiral down into a ‘banana republic’ or a fascist corporate owned government.
As always peace and may joy and harmony and love surround you. Thank you for the time you took to read this.
