President Obama’s Town Meeting on Facebook

I was impressed that the environment was actually as stable as it was. Technology keeps on advancing. I wish we could keep pace with advances in humanity the way John Naisbitt suggested was necessary in Megatrends. I was with a student for part of it. Was education / funding our future addressed?

Democracy is based on empathy, that is, on citizens caring about each other and acting on that care, taking responsibility not just for themselves but for their families, communities, and their nation. The role of government is to carry out this principle in two ways: protection and empowerment.  George Lakoff

When The Country We Believe In embodies this aspiration, she is at her humane best.
