Notice to Our Readers: We are halting publication of the Significato Journal. It's been a lovely experience, but we have found that with limited time, we need to focus our efforts in new directions (which include book publishing). We have started to move content to our personal websites (https://peterfalkenbergbrown.com and https://kimmysophiabrown.com (Kim's website is not ready yet)). When that process is completed, we'll send out a final email to our SJ subscribers and invite you all to subscribe to our individual subscription lists. We'll post links to our other writers too, so that you can find their work. More to come... [Peter and Kim - May 26, 2020]
Charles Eisenstein: The American Dream betrayed . . .
~ One of the brightest, clearest, most intelligent, loving and insightful people currently on the planet ~
Jan 5, 2018
QUOTE: The American Dream betrayed even those who achieved it, lonely in their overtime careers and their McMansions, narcotized to the ongoing ruination of nature and culture but aching because of it, endlessly consuming and accumulating to quell the insistent voice: “I wasn’t put here on Earth to sell a product.” “I wasn’t put here on Earth to increase market share.” “I wasn’t put here on Earth to make numbers grow.”
No one deserves to live in a world built upon the degradation of human beings, forests, waters, and the rest of our living planet. Speaking to our brethren on Wall Street: No one deserves to spend their lives playing with numbers while the world burns. END QUOTE
Charles Eisenstein is the author of The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible and other books. He is a writer, speaker and thinker who is a purveyor of some of the most refreshing and unselfish ideas regarding what he calls “the new story.” Please check out charleseisenstein.net, his many talks and interviews on Youtube.com, and his books. I cannot think of a single person who has given me as much hope regarding the future, and the possibility of a world of cooperation and communication. Besides, look at that sweet face. What a mensch.
