To have no set purpose in one's life is the harlotry of the will -Stephen Mackenna-

I try not to have cliche discussions about huge events as the media will do more talking than we can imagine or even tolerate.

But Jamais over at worldchanging so succinctly stated how I feel and what needed to be said (even better than what Blair said):

It's important to remind ourselves that we have in our hands the tools for our own transformation, and we can make the world a better place through our own actions. There are some who wish to change the world through fear and violence, but there are far, far more of us who want to change the world through knowledge, cooperation, democracy and a long-view wisdom about both our responsibilities and our opportunities. The future is on our side.

The solutions we write about here, no matter how seemingly trivial or transient, are part of a greater constellation of possibility. The latest green design, networked gadget or open-source model won't, in and of itself, solve the problems the world faces. But no one item or idea will do so -- only the ongoing, combined efforts and inspiration of the growing community of people who know that another world isn't just possible, it's here, and it's in our hands.
