The sad reality is that if we don't get ourselves back into balance with our environment and the planet, then we won't have any place to have, much less discuss, social issues on because we won't exist. Period. However, if we don't work through our social issues, then it is highly unlikely we will solve our environmental issues, because, when all said and done, it will take every single one of us working together. We and the planet can thrive. Together.
