There’s an entire universe of people out there, countless others spreading ideas of a positive future.
You might call them dreamers, or crazy. You might say that what they are doing is never gonna work, and that we are doomed to fall back to our primal instincts. Ladies and Gentlemen, brothers and sisters, comrades and friends, I am here to tell you differently.
I know, we live in an age with daunting problems. We need the best ideas possible, we need them now, we need them to spread fast. The common good is a meme that was overwhelmed by the seductive mirage of blind profit and intellectual property. But it needs to spread again. If the meme prospers, our laws, our norms, our society, they all transform.
This is social evolution! And it’s not up to governments, it’s not up to corporations, it’s not up to lawyers… it’s up to us!
We are the children of a thousand generations of this human race. We have come this far not to be subjected to imperialism, conflicts, and deprivation. We are meant for something great. I am here to tell you that with the right mind and motivation, we can achieve anything. We have the technology to feed everyone on earth. We can escape the prison of working for survival. And we can find a balance with nature. We can do all this and much, but only if we want to.
And now, go do something amazing.
