This speech is the highly developed result of over 30 years of conscious insight and progressive thought from David Korten. I was introduced to David quite by accident as I turned on a public radio station and listened to his speech, which was already in progress.
IT WAS BREATHTAKING!
I had no idea who I was listening to yet and I recognized immediately that I must find out who yielded such incredibly lucid and penetrating thoughts.
I was working at the time and soon found the need to stop cold, put down my tasks and take note. This man, who was still unknown to me, brought tears to my eyes much the same way that art, music and other high-level humanities can stir the soul.
Obama doesn’t have shit on David Korten when it comes to presenting a massively complex issue in a way that is literally life-changing.
