In my Start Over Success Journal, in part three, My New Normal, I write that I am wondering if political parties need to be replaced with something else. I don’t know what.
When I read posts from people in western USA who are dealing with the fires and hear these people say repeatedly that politicians of all parties don’t understand what it’s really like to live in their area so therefore can’t/don’t help, I question the value of politicians.
I was one of the first Head Start teachers in the USA. I remember Robert Kennedy explaining that local people know best what kind of school, what kind of Head Start, would serve them best. He actually said that Washington doesn’t know.
I couldn’t find the exact quote.
But this memory and the success of Head Start makes me wonder if more local control is needed.
Yes, I know the danger of this–local control and no politicians.
Somehow, we have got to have a solution, many solutions, that doesn’t have all these unintended consequences.
I don’t know what that is.
I only know that if the question/yearning is put out into the Cosmos, answers appear.
Help me watch and listen for those answers.
There has got to be a solution/solutions to what we are now facing.
And so it is.
