Love or Occupy?
This is the first posting on this blog, so I want to let you know what's going to be trumped in this space. I guess we all have subjects which have become important to us. The "Occupiers" the past few weeks have issues with the way our democracy allows greed to dominate decisions. I agree. But try to find another system which is preferable? Certainly socialism's experiment failed, largely because greed and tyranny made life miserable for even more people. I am convinced that the world has yet to come up with an ideal system.
What I do know is that you and I can make this world a whole lot better by exercising love - kindness, consideration, compassion, altruism, generosity. That is not the only theme to appear on this Have a Heart blog, but it will be a thread easily recognized in most of them.
I welcome comments and feedback.
