Invest in Education and Community

With the pandemic and the ongoing division racing through the nation, I would argue that it's time to look at how we educate our children/population and how we invest in the future of our communities. We have spent decades spending our capital on investments in Wall Street while the scraps that are left often goes to pet projects and personal agendas. We have misled our population on the history of our nation and what it has become. And for what?

Our form of government is based on protecting the many, not pandering to the few. However, we the people have allowed our elected officials the broad latitude to build the world we are living with today. I would argue that we need to elect (and hold accountable) officials who will work to invest in the truthful education of the people and will work to build communities and a society that is inclusive and that works to benefit the majority of the people and not just the few.

I'll offer an easy start, do away with the isms: Capitalism, Communism and Socialism. Once the isms are eliminated refine the meanings:

Capital: the leadership of the people, by the people and for the people.

Commun: the root word for community, which may be defined as people living together and sharing common goals.

Social: living together within the community; being a good friend and neighbor; and supporting those who cannot support themselves.

Just a thought...
