Isa & the Left Open crew are Green Party members that follow the Green Party's progressive platform which includes universal health care and education through the undergraduate college level. Of course, the "green" in the Green Party is a strong, progressive stance against pollution and other corporate malfeasance.
We strongly support grass roots democracy and oppose the current corporatocracy threatening world freedom today. Click here for more details.
- Elder Wisdom -
Within the tribal structure you often had people who displayed the riches of their society. However they were never the chiefs, the peacemakers, the medicine people or the ceremony leaders. Those people were among the poorest because they lived as examples of the giveaway. The sharing of what you have with others who's needs are greater then yours. The tribe supported them knowing that most of what was given to them for their work would in turn be given back to the tribe.
Too bad that today's politicians, MD's, religious leaders and NGO
leaders don't follow this example. Perhaps we need to choose our leaders based on how they live rather then what they say.
Perhaps more people need to show the way. I try to do so.
