“Speak the truth.
Speak it loud and often, calmly but insistently,
and speak it, as the Quakers say, to power.
Material accumulation is not the purpose of human existence.
All growth is not good.
The environment is a necessity, not a luxury.
There is such a thing as enough.”
Speaking truth to power was a phrase that cropped up a lot during the last election cycle, so much so it lost its power. Here it is reclaimed with credit due. What if we could tell these truths? Make them our own True North? How might that change how we are as friends, neighbors and citizens? How might it change the world? Consider this an invitation to think about it with me.
