When I consider the word “Country,” I think of two things: land and people. “Land” is the earth, sky, water and wild life, and their health. “People” is all humans living there, and their health, physical, economic and so forth. I never consider wealth, business, industry or politics. These things are artifacts of people. They are not the essence of “Country.” Yet the way we have structured society, land and people are treated purely as disposable raw materials for the service of wealth, business, industry and/or politics. I don’t know what the result of any election will mean in terms of making the land and people less treated as consumables, and their good and sustained health treated more as the goal of “Country.” But that’s what is needed. This condition may also be a root cause of the current dissatisfaction with politics as usual.
