Marianne Williamson tells us that we must see the problems for exactly what they are, and that we must be willing to change on the most profound level. Check out what Williamson has to say in this transcribed excerpt from her lecture on "The Tao of the Dow: Miracles and the U.S. Economy."
I want to tell you what America’s dirty little secret is about capitalism. And many people in this room know it to be true. Once you are in that club, it is not that hard to stay in it. Once you have the keys to that club, you lose money and you get money, but you kind of get, you have had the keys. You know, I do not have a problem with the fact that we say in America that everybody has to pull themselves up the ladder of success themselves. I’ve worked real hard myself. What I have earned in my life, I’ve worked. However, I am very clear. My society put me on the first rung. We are saying to millions of children in this society today climb up the ladder yourself when they are so little and somebody has to put them on that first rung. We do not even let them up on the ladder and then we tell them to climb. How can you tell somebody to pull themselves up by their bootstraps when they have no boots?That is morally wrong. It is morally wrong.
