* even if america
wakes up (which it shows no signs of doing), and even if those at the top of
the financial food chain wake up (which appears extremely unlikely), there are other countries (with other power-hungry wanna-bees) that are
likely to use our blueprint for ‘success’:
pursue instant gratification,
ignore long-term sustainability planning.

will be far from joyful.are the best of times (really) behind us?
* humanity’s only hope might be that hope-full third-grader, who (hopefully, right
now) is smiling up at the sun.
