Idealism requires Action, in order to create change. I think that at this moment in history we are witnessing the manifestation of Idealism that has simmering in the kettle for several years now. There are Revolutions in Libya and Egypt, and all over America people are uniting and organizing to prevent a few politicians from stripping us of our hard earned Labor rights, environmental protections, social safety nets and Public Education.
Idealism, the power to imagine a better world, to visualize systems of cooperation and equality is what enables us to speak up when our rights are being violated. Without Idealism and creative thought we would be like sheep, content to focus on our t.v. shows, celebrity addictions and other nonsense. Idealism, whether in vogue or not, is without a doubt a necessary ingredient in the recipe for creating a meal that can sustain us all.
Any thoughts? Agree? Disagree? I always love to hear others thoughts!
