Human beings will be happier - not when they cure cancer or get to Mars or eliminate racial prejudice or flush Lake Erie but when they find ways to inhabit primitive communities again. That's my utopia.

Your Vegan Holistic President
Sure an odd, spiritual guy like Dennis Kucinich doesn't have a chance in hell. But it sure is nice to dream

by Mark Morford

I would really like to copy this whole article at length but I'm hoping you'll go read it yourself, including the links he offers. He asks:"Why does this seem so far off, so utterly impossible? Have we gone so far down the road of BushCo-style isolationism and dread and knives-out bile that we can't even entertain a serious alternative, the notion that we actually could, as a country, stand for something as radical as peace?"
Is it really all that radical? Is it really all that extreme to try and imagine a truly connected national leadership that promotes international cooperation and spiritual openness and the sacredness of the environment and a genuinely holistic worldview, one who actually attempts to connect with and listen to its populace?
How shockingly naive it seems, how utterly childish to think we could have a president who actually promotes peace and empowers the U.N. and works toward interconnectedness, and in this day and age. Don't you know the world is at our throat? Don't you know it's all eye-for-an-eye and dog-eat-dog and only the strong survive and kill 'em all before they come and eat our innocent babies?

I ask myself, "If I hold these ideals dear, then what is wrong with working toward them?" The more we work toward our ideals, the better chance we have of realizing them, true? How did the ideals of American become so distorted, so utterly against what all great spiritual leaders, including Christ, spoke of? How did we collectively let a group of militant, imperialistic fundamentalists take hold of our minds and country? Why do people think Dennis Kucinich is odd? Have they been victims of headlines, yes, even this Mark Morford headline, that they go no further, refusing to take a good look at all the other issues and where Kucinich stands, issues such as health care, labor and economic justice, the drug war and military spending? Not so radical, realistically sound and do-able.
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.
