In my dream, the word "greed" has been eradicated. People no longer recognize it. The concept is gone, so we no longer need a word to describe it. Instead another word has taken its place -- "fairness." In my dream, all people are treated fairly....

In my dream, the word "greed" has been eradicated. People no longer recognize it. The concept is gone, so we no longer need a word to describe it.

Instead another word has taken its place -- "fairness."

In my dream, all people are treated fairly. They are able to get medical care, regardless of their circumstance. They are able to have food and shelter, regardless of their state of life. CEO's no longer make hundreds of times the salary of a laborer. People of color no longer have to fight to get a job. Women no longer have to work harder than men to succeed. Every child is educated. Our natural resources are not stripped away just so "the shareholders can make a profit." Our air and water are clean, not because of law, but because these things are more important than money.

People are more important than money -- all people.
