We must always be alert to the reality that we tend to become accustomed to the way things are, to assume that's the way they've always been and the way they will stay. The first step is to become conscious -- to become aware.
That is the challenge that we face -- doing what is necessary to raise the consciousness of enough people so they can see what the marriage of the corporations, agribusiness, governmental agencies and political influence is doing to our children and families.
Waking up is a phrase that should be a regular part of our political lexicon. We have to start looking EVERYWHERE to wake up to some of the ways our world has been modified to make it better for corporations, at the expense of what's good for humans and families.
