Quote of the Day: A Declaration of Interdependence


Steve McCallion, executive creative director at design and innovation consultancy Ziba Design, writes in Fast Company Design:

America has mortgaged its future to maintain the symbols of personal freedom (the house, the car, the big screen TV) at the expense of real freedom. We owe China almost one trillion dollars; our public education system is approaching collapse; and, we rank number one globally for our obesity rate, with more than a third of our adult population being technically obese. America's current understanding of freedom is unsustainable and raises the question, "Are we really free?"....We need to identify new enemies of freedom, create a new list of evidence, and make a new declaration that will guide us for the next 100 years.
