Tipping point?

A lot of Americans aren't just fearful; they are hopeless.

And while our circumstances do appear dire, there are several things worth remembering. One is that we can't predict future, so really we have no certainty that our nation's reversal of the last four decades will continue. Another thing to keep in mind is that when change does happen, it's often quick and unexpected.

We know that there are activists around the world working to make the place healthier and fairer; it's possible that their labors will come to nothing, that global capitalism and climate change will put an end to our little Enlightenment experiment.

But what if the failures of capitalism and the efforts to create alternatives are each reaching critical mass? What if change is going to come?
