Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out

You don't hear too many people advising us to "Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out" these days. However, it appears beyond doubt that the "system" is even more broken beyond possibility of being fixed from within than it was in the 60's.

Many of us want a better world but continue to crank the engines that are driving it off a cliff. Compassion and love, shared with our communities can accomplish true good, and we are at the point where we must build our better world through ourselves without expecting justice to come from the top.

Tom is right. As many of us as possible do need to find a new way of living that brings peace, love, and happiness to our tribes.
