The biggest inequity is not that we deprive others of our generation of fair and just distribution of wealth and health today, but that we ignore the obvious damage to our children, a conscious legacy of denial of the best of our knowledge and experience to those who follow, an equitable, negative inheritance for millions of others tomorrow.

We tend to view the world horizontally, a wide spectrum, surround-sound panorama of life in which we participate as actor, director, producer, and audience. But there is also a secondary perspective — vertical — that looks up and out to our personal aspirations and down and in to our thoughts and fears. And finally, there is a third perspective, in time, through which we look backward into our history and forward into our future, by application of inquiry and imagination. Compound attendance in this theatrical performance, and you have the sum total of the human drama.
