    As a younger generation, how do we overcome the hopelessness of overcoming the traditional system that we still live in? I want to take a step to embrace eco communities however there is always a lingering doubt in ensuring my financial security, since a majority of society still deeply connects to the conventional social norms.

    What passion! I experienced everything from despair at the enormous complexity of what must occur to exhilaration at what is already happening around the world. While the US reverses long-held policies to draw down nuclear weapons, protect our environment (air, water, land, entire ecosystems), and more, the rest of the world demonstrates what humanity can do when we assume responsibility and Keep Going.

  • Steven Van Brussel

    I am grateful that I could watch this important message for free and agree that more people should hear this. But then you’ll have to pay for it… Anyway, I’m going to look for the nearest ecosystem restoration camp. See you there!
