This does not mean the creation of a society of equals. That will never happen.
However, it does mean that we will stop striving ceaselessly to work only for the prosperity of NUMBER ONE.
It means that everything we do in life will be in progressive partnerships with others. There is no place in society for selfish loners.
It means that more and more of us will decide to work in not for profit corporations where we will get excellent salaries and wages, but no bonuses or dividends, and with all profits either being ploughed back into the growth of the business or given as grants to community institutions.
What I am really saying is that society can be upgraded by business leaders, not politicians. As an establishment, our political class has betrayed us badly and no longer has the trust of the voters of Australia.
A community of fair dinkum Aussies, led by a need breed of enlightened visionaries, can emerge in the business and financial sectors to assume the role of ethical leaders of the nation, thereby creating a peaceful social revolution that is long overdue.
My prayers are that religious leaders will also open up their minds and join the gentle upheaval that will create THE COMMON GOOD, a philosophy fostered by Jesus of Nazareth.
