I want to be number one for the right reasons. Because we are helping other nations and not because they have resources we want. Because we run our country in a manner that warrants admiration.
I am embarrassed that we found justification to torture people, that we continue to contract with companies whose employees commit atrocities and seemingly go unpunished, that our social fabric seems to be heading back to the dark ages in attitudes.
The globe is a lot smaller now. I agree with a community of nations. Pollution we create affects everyone, what they create affects us. We have to start viewing the planet as a community and not as separate countries. We have to insist that companies act with social responsibility in what they let loose on our community.
