WE

 

  Love Nature and the essence of life and are deeply concerned about its preservation
 

  Are strongly aware of the problems of the whole planet
(global warming, destruction of rainforests, overpopulation, lack of ecological sustainability, exploitation of people)
and want to take more action on them, such as transforming economic growth
 

  Would pay more taxes or pay more for consumer goods if we could know
the money would go to clean up the environment and to stop global warming
 

Place a great deal of importance on developing and maintaining our relationships
 

Place a lot of value on helping other people and bringing out their unique gifts
 

Do volunteering for one or more good causes
 

Care intensely about both psychological and spiritual development
 

See spirituality or kind religion as important in our lives,
but are concerned about the role of the Religious Right in politics
 

Want more equality for women at work, and more women leaders in business and politics
 

Are concerned about violence and abuse of women and children around the world
 

Want our politics and government spending to put more emphasis on children’s education and well-being,
on rebuilding our neighborhoods and communities, and on creating an ecologically sustainable future
 

Are unhappy with both the Left and the Right in politics,
and want a to find a new way that is not in the mushy middle
 

Tend to be somewhat optimistic about our future,
and distrust the cynical and pessimistic view that is given by the media
 

Want to be involved in creating a new and better way of life for ourselves
 

Are concerned about what the big corporations are doing in the name of making more profits:
downsizing, creating environmental problems, and exploiting poorer countries
 

Have our finances and spending under control, and are not concerned about overspending
 

Dislike all the emphasis in modern culture on just success and ‘making it’, on getting and spending, on wealth and luxury goods
 

Like people and places that are exotic and foreign,
and like experiencing and learning about other ways of living that allow all of us to feel supported and bloom fully
