There Are Solutions

It’s Sunday evening, August 14, 2011, and I’m starting a blog. It’s about solutions.

We actually can turn this mess around; we can turn away from destructive directions, and toward positive directions. There are solutions, but they don’t want us to believe that. That’s why I’ve decided to focus on solutions.

Who do I mean by “they” when I say they don’t want us to believe there are solutions? That will be my next blog.

Who do I mean by “us”? People who want great education and environment, jobs and justice, housing and healthcare, peace.

What kind of solutions? Individual and institutional solutions. Solutions where we take personal and global responsibility.

And a very important thing we’ll talk about is “How do we get there from here?” Social movements and electoral movements, awareness and solidarity, the power of good examples.

That about covers it. Thanks for joining in.

Another world is possible,

Laura

About Laura Wells: Solutions
I ran for Controller in California in 2014 on a State Bank and Tax The Rich platform. I am part of the “No Corporate Money” Campaign, in which candidates pledge to take no corporate money and voters declare our intention to vote for no-corporate-money candidates. As a Green Party candidate for Governor of California in 2010, I was arrested outside a gubernatorial debate for “trespassing at a private party.” But we won't stop, and so let's create a "public party" where we debate solutions to California's finances, like implementing a State Bank and taxing the rich -- to reduce the disparity and open up opportunities.
