It’s Thursday, Traffic, and Communes

23 May

Thursday popped up rather suddenly. Apparently I wasn’t paying attention.

I also wasn’t paying attention to the traffic report this morning and got stuck on the interstate in a long line of harried workers who were going to be seriously late for work. I crept along with them for a few miles and nearly thirty minutes, found my way off the road and proceeded to take the long way downtown.

It was an eye opener. I so want to buy every house and building on the route I took and make it all beautiful again. Downtown is coming back now. I want the whole city to come back. We have so many resources. We could shelter the homeless and feed the hungry. We could employ the unemployed and do great things with what we have. Yet we bicker over who’s right and who’s wrong. We become trapped in an ideology that doesn’t work for the collective. We wage war and create tyrants.

Wonder what would happen if Bill Gates put his infinite amount of resources into rebuilding an entire city. Just think of the possibilities. He cohghghgink what he could accomplish. People working for each other to grow food, provide power, make clothing, build and renovate and manufacture in a sustainable fashion and all the excess created for profit. It would be a commune for the 21st century. It would be a model for the rest of the world. Impoverished people. And, no not communism, just a society working for the benefit of each other and not just to benefit the man who is already wealthy beyond reason.

I know there is a better way. I hope we find it soon.

    I don’t think I have ever seen fingers tied in a knot before, but yours must have been in one of epic, mythic Gordian proportions.

    Traffic sucks. Bill-gazillionaires do too.

    New book series, new author to add to the list, Marian Keyes and the Walsh sisters.
