We Are an Extended Family

A recent trip to Atlanta brought back to my mind futurist Jeremy Rifkin.

I've followed him and written about him for years because his ideas make sense to me. Please see:
Canny Chinese… Metamorphosis into Smartest “New Capitalist”.

Many throughout the world agree, especially European and Chinese leaders. They have implemented his concepts and are moving their nations progressively forward by creating an improved life for all their people.

American political leaders have not. There are some exceptions, such as San Antonio's local government leaders (Mission Verde).

Still, for the most part, we are mired in and wasting precious resources on Mr. Trump’s insanely superficial, "alternative" world.

These two videos present a glimpse of Rifkin's world... our world... if only we would allow ourselves to have it.
