Our New World Order

I propose that our world has reached the point of being able to transcend the capitalist verses the communist, the entrepreneurial verses the socialist debate. I say we can do this if we seize upon one of the most central insights about our nature as human beings--that we are creative and noble creatures, in essence.

What if our paradigm for "success" is transformed from material accumulation for the individual or private interest to creative contribution to all humanity? Is this possible? Are we there yet?

You may respond to this idea generally, considering only its proposition in these three short paragraphs, or you may check out its more nuanced presentation at my Facebook pager here:
