Demons vs angels

I am inspired today by Helen Caldicott's book "Loving This Planet, Leading Thinkers Talk about How to Make a Better World."

I went to sleep after selecting some people's interviews that I knew the names.  Daniel Elsberg, Martin Sheen, Lily Tomlin.  The other activists, journalists, environmentalists will be tomorrow.

What is most striking for me is the problem that's identified over and over, that the buck is where the problem is.  Money power.  That politicians are corrupt because of this.  That corporation's leadership is corrupt because of the almighty dollar.  That none of them listen to real people and real issues because their ears are plugged with gold.

So it has ever been.  But there have been ways somehow to get things accomplished in the world.  Somehow money has been made by doing good...rather than avoided in order to make money.
