I Dreamt

Posted: 08/09/09 08:57 PM ET

I dreamt that another world was possible and I thought what would happen if I did not pursue my dream. I thought another world was possible and I dreamt that I woke up and never gave up. I dreamt of a better world and woke up and decided to start the journey of our lifetime.

I dreamt I once lived a society of harmony and global justice and I thought what would happen if I did not pursue my dream. I dreamt I once inhabited a society of cornucopia and eutopia and decided to wake up from my beautiful dream and face the reality of an extremely unequal world.

I dreamt we were all equal and woke up and did not understand the acute differences we see today, and did not understand why hunger and disease and conflict prevail on the blue planet.

I dreamt I lived a society of no borders and no diplomacy. I dreamt I lived a peaceful society that did not impose its views through the military might. I dreamt that every human being had some wonderful thoughts to share. I dreamt that every human being once upon a time wished we had a better world, and woke up and decided to lead a change if leadership is necessary.

I dreamt I once loved and was loved. I dreamt I was part of a society of global understanding and woke up to the reality of an unequal world where hate dominates love, where dream is annihilated by the superpowers, where we continue to preserve the national interest over the global interest.

I feel I am part of a society that has to look forward and not backward. I feel I am part of a society that has to recover the courage of past generations that dreamt and materialized a utopia. I feel I am part of a generation that has to look ahead and defeat the great evils of our time.

I dreamt and dream. I dream and will dream. I decided to become a dreamer who loves and a lover who dreams and made a promise, that I shall never stop this Journey that will take us to Decemland, the land of ten percent. It is time dreamers, it is time to wake up and materialize utopia, it is time to lead a change if leadership is necessary.

It is time to think big and ambitious. It is time to picture the best world we can imagine and move forward. It is time to embrace the extreme poor and preserve human dignity and environmental sustainability.

I dreamt I once inhabited the World of 2050 and decided to wake up and live the life of the 2010s. I dreamt that we could accomplish in 40 years what many thought would only happen in two centuries.

We live the best world we have ever inhabited. We are not the owners of this world, only its custodians. I hear the winds of change and become a man of stature. I breathe the breeze that comes from the society that inhabits the World of 2050 and decide to become a dreamer that loves and a lover and dreams.

It is time. It is time to defeat the Pirates of Heartless Capitalism and embrace the most vulnerable. I discovered a Path that will lead us to the World of 2050, it will not be easy but it can be accomplished. I encourage the dreamers that dwell this harsh world dominated by the Pirates and their friends to get on the Journey of their Lifetime. I encourate those that dreamt they would live the best world they have ever inhabited to get on this journey of optimism that starts on the Decem Date.

My intuition may be right, dreamers. My intuition may be right, pirates. My intuition may be right, Expert Dreamers. Welcome to the best time we have ever lived. Welcome to our tipping point. I am ready to get into Tardis and accelerate trends. Are you dreamers? Are you Expert Dreamers? I am ready to say why not instead of why. Are you dreamers. Are you Expert Dreamers?

I think I might have discovered the Path to Eutopia and Cornucopia. I think Decemland may be closer than we ever thought possible. My intuition may be right, dreamers, pirates and Expert Dreamers. Shall you get into Tardis?

What if my dreams pointed out the right Path out of this mess we have turned today's world into? What if my dreams pointed out the right way out of the current calamity of world we have created?

Are you ready dreamers? Are you ready Expert Dreamers? We need to love and dream to materialize Eutopia and Cornucopia. I embrace you, vulnerable, I embrace you, extreme poor. It is time to defend your priorities no matter what it takes.

I am ready to lead the best team of Expert Dreamers that has ever served the global pulic interest. I am ready to become the Chief Dreamer and lead the best team of Gladiators of the Idea that has ever been put together to move forward in a world in desperate need of creative policymaking.

The Decem Date is approaching and the Window of Opportunity will soon begin. As the Decem Date approaches I become a man of stature and only look forward. I learn to dream and love and embrace those in extreme need.

Why did we stop dreaming? Why did we think the great evils of our time would perpetuate? Why did we accept Western superiority and the use of the military and industrial might to impose our principles?

Wake up Keynes and see what we have become. Wake up Truman and Marshall, come back to Earth and see what we have become. Wake up Roosevelt, Monnet and Schuman and see the world we have created without your consent. Get out dreamers and shout the urgency of our time. Wake up Expert Dreamers and don't be afraid. It is your time, don't forsake it.

What if my dreams pointed out the right Path out of this mess? What if my intuition was right and the Expert Dreamers I identified in my numerous trips and interviews were the visionaries of the twenty-first century? What if we all become men and women of stature? What if we all become dreamers who love and lovers who dream?

I ain't a baby boomer. I do not preserve my interest over that of the most vulnerable. I ain't a pirate. I do not belong in the establishment. I have no prestige or reputation. I am not afraid pirates.

It is time. It is our time. Let's move ahead.
