In our world today we see the tyranny of the “or” in almost every aspect of life. For generations we have chosen between seeming paradoxes, only to stand now on the precipice of everything falling apart. The systems and ways of thinking that we have utilized up until now are no longer sustainable. We no longer get to choose between economic growth OR taking care of people, technological advances OR preserving the environment, being conservative OR liberal, tearing our societal systems down OR holding them up no matter what, good for the many OR good for the few, taking care of ourselves OR taking care of others, personal safety OR collective freedom… the list goes on and on. Instead, we must focus on finding new solutions, setting aside our differences and working together, and working towards a third way.
