What Are We Going to Do?

In yesterday's post, I shared my views of the three things that need to be in place for a society that works. I indicated that there is disagreement as to how we can get there, and I didn't claim to have a solution to the problem of how to get there.

Robert Reich recently posted a video on his Facebook page in which he relates having someone come up to him and ask him, "What are we going to do?" Supposedly, the question had to do with a growing concern over what is happening in the country today. Reich shares some ideas of what we can do to make our system work better, centered around three "moral principles" that he thinks everyone can agree with:
  1. Nobody should be working full time and still be in poverty
  2. Everyone should be able to make the most of their abilities
  3. We should not have a privileged aristocracy
Listen to what Robert Reich has to say, and feel free to add any comments you may have as to where we need to be headed and how we can get there.
