Steve Sachs: While I am extremely concerned about the current state of the world, I am extremely hopeful that the election of Barack Obama opens a door to turning crisis into opportunity, on many fronts, if enough people give that energy. We need a new consciousness, a broader way of approaching issues and each other. The depth of the difficulties combined with hope provides a basis for moving ahead significantly. It is also important that, at least in the United States, many people are in agreement with Obama’s message that we must begin to work now, but it will take time to achieve major results.
