A utopia only for the rich is no utopia at all. Americans have to decide whether they are going to continue to chase after an unobtainable mirage, or choose to construct a society where the vast majority have the same chance at a happy and prosperous life as the lucky few.

It is not as easy as it might seem to move away from hatred, since it can feel like giving up or giving in. When we are tied by hatred, whether to our stories or our religion, we cannot be free.

Sunday Roundup

New Year's weekend is the perfect opportunity to clean out our internal hard drives, and begin to bring more balance to our lives (I don't know anyone who doesn't need more balance, so will someone please go ahead and create an app for that already?!). How about beginning with a list of three things you thought you would do one day but, realistically, you never will. You can just declare them complete. For example, I always wanted to learn German and be able to read many of my favorite authors in the original. But the truth is, I'm never going to. So I've declared learning German complete and crossed it off my list. By deleting things from your mind that you will one day, some day do, you're freeing up space to devote yourself to projects you are truly committed to. So what are you going to cross off your list to make room for all your New Year's resolutions as 2011 kicks into gear?
