ENVISION THIS: A society where the Golden Rule--both for our neighbors and for our environment--is the guiding principle
Our guest, Daniel Geery, states his guiding philosophy at his candidate website during an unsuccessful run for congress against Orin Hatch in Utah: “Treat your neighbors as you’d want to be treated; help the less fortunate; forgive others; educate youth in a well-rounded curriculum; live in harmony with Nature and within our means; encourage recognition that we are one species on one planet, with many differences but also with the same ultimate fate; push for kindness and fairness as globally accepted norms. Recognize that humanity, not money, is what we are ultimately working for.” Why did he lose? How can he/we win?
Daniel walks his talk…all of it. Come, listen to a true progressive visionary, one who has campaigned on his principles; gotten fired as a tenured, acclaimed teacher for speaking up to authority; written editorials for OpEd news and a coming-of-age novel; lived off the grid; and invented an upward gliding airship. Let’s hear how Daniel Geery visualizes a more humane and resilient culture.

PHENOMENAL WOMAN by Maya Angelou...Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size. I'm a WOMAN PHENOMENALLY-THAT'S ME.
I walk into a room just as cool as you please and to a man the fellows stand or fall down on their knees. I'm a WOMAN, PHENOMENALLY.
Men themselves have wondered what they see in me, they try so hard but can't touch my inner mystery.
It's in the arch of my back, the sun in my smile, the ride of my breats, the grace of my style.
Understand it's in the click of my heels, the bend in my hair, cause I'm a WOMAN, PHENOMENALLY.
I'm not telling lies...etc.
It's in the reach of my...etc.
Men swarm around me...etc.
