I've been thinking over these things for quite some time now. The sense of "wrongness" that I have been having over the last few years is notable, however I do feel that there are plenty of people out there that are concerned about our society, and are doing their best to help. There is hope and things are changing for the good, thanks God.
If we are to build our better world today, we need to know the reasons behind our struggles, we need to define the things that challenge us, and then we need to come together, as a community, and do our best to solve the puzzle.
Just recently I stumbled upon a very nice video, called "Sacred Economics with Charles Eisenstein - A Short Film", in which the author explains the hurdles that many of us face, and the wrong things about our system, as well as the way we can solve many of these problems and have a meaningful life. Just watch it here, it is beautifully explained.
