Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1001 to 1500
~ Idea 1285 ~
16 January 1998
The private enterprise, financial, marketing, advertising capitalist system claims that it will bring prosperity to the entire world.

Well, the Secretary General of the UN reported to the last UN General Assembly that 100 nations on this planet have become poorer in the last fifteen years and that 1.3 billion people of this Earth have a daily income of only one dollar.

The UN also reports that world-wide and within all nations the rich are getting richer and the poor poorer.

When will someone at long last stand up and challenge the present free enterprise system?

Volume II Chapter 11 - Of Gratitude
Someday, population growth will stop or be so slow and life so precious that people will thank God for having been allowed to be born and to live.

Love is based on imagination.
-- Olivier Martinez

 Moral imagination is the capacity to empathize with others, i.e., not just to feel for oneself, but to feel with and for others.
-- Thomas McCollough
~~~~ Good News of the Day:
Sometimes the greatest lessons come unexpectedly, and from the smallest moments. 7-year-old Owen Shure's heart-warming letter to a football player is a perfect example. The Twittersphere buzzed with reactions to the San Francisco 49ers' Kyle Williams fumbling the ball in a tight moment in the playoffs. Some responses were downright vitriolic. But hopefully Kyle also saw this touching story from Ben Mankiewicz: 'He was crying, saying of Kyle Williams, with the distinct sobs of a seven-year-old between each word, "But... why... did he... have to... fumble?" [...] Trying to get his son to stop crying, Michael asked him, "If you feel this way, how sad do you think Kyle Williams is?" Owen paused a second, then asked his dad, "Can I write him a letter to make him feel better?"' Nisha Srinivasan shares her reflections on Kyle's letter. [More]

~~~~ Be The Change:
The next time you're upset with someone, flip the frame and let them know how you would feel in their shoes.
