My favorite inauguration speech quote:
“The world has changed and we must change with it.”
But what I mostly felt was 1933 and 1960.
1933 for the economy
1960 for a shift in spirit and intellect.
I imagine fat cats from the 1920’s running around, not caring, greedily consuming everything in their paths.
I imagine Black Americans in Newark in the early 1960’s waiting for the great times to come.
Change is cyclical but it is also linear. So yes, the world has changed and WE MUST change with it. It’s all about the effluent and the affluent. We must diminish our pollution, all of it, so living things may grow. We must spread the riches more evenly, so the system can thrive.
The world has changed and we must change with it. The thinking in our country has changed. It is evolution.
