In the wake of the unrelenting waive of social, economic and political chaos, Author & Economic Policy Analyst, Curtis Greco wonders if the American People, and by extension their Government, has lost sight of a fundamental truth: “Outcome is no more than the contributions we make either by will or by abstinence. We arrive at whatever point and to whatever moment decidedly aligned with all that came before where glory or tragedy are no less the reward dispensed or dispersed.” He recalls one of his favorite Henry David Thoreau quotes: “Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life. Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something." The Imperfect Messenger Foundation believes this single quote best describes the very meaning behind a component phrase in our own Declaration of Independence - The Pursuit of Happiness - and calls upon the American People to take a Leadership Role in redefining what becomes our next future!

"...fused divisiveness in to what is now a common form of discourse."

In a time when Americans reflect and recall the tragic events of 9/11, Foundation Director, Celia Sedgwick said, “Curtis Greco sat down and penned both a reflective and a timely work of art: A Unifying Force. Reflective and respectful of the events as they were, timely in that his words capture the sentiment of most Americans or as Curtis would say, ‘as the distance grows and the mounting costs wage war on the American Psyche. The article and it’s message is one every American should read."

As Greco stated during a recent interview with M.J. Pope of KAHI Radio, “The problem with Paul Krugman’s comment are not so much what he said as it is that we as a Nation find ourselves in an environment that has fused divisiveness in to what is now a common form of discourse. It’s everywhere but most conspicuously at the most dangerous levels of all; Government and the Media. We no longer pursue an outcome based on foundationally sound and rational precepts, we seem to now favor dialogue for the single purpose of shock and polarize form of contagion and the outcome is distinctly toxic and pointless. And let’s be quite clear about something, the President, much of the Congressional Leadership and an alarming number of media personalities are equally culpable.”

In his own words taken from the very same article, Greco writes: “Still, the events of 9/11 can be A Unifying Force that powerfully resonates for one and all. It can become not a durable emblem of loss but an enduring reminder of a profound and glorious departure. A time of ascension where Man resumed his journey of pursuing a cause worth perfecting; correcting his routines such that the principles guiding us are synonymous with those that define and lay as evidence not as to what we say but more so as to what we actually do. Then and only then will there be no Life or Liberty lost in the Pursuit of Happiness, there is only its perfecting of A Unifying Force. Calling upon yet another of my favorite R.W. Emerson pearls, I offer the following as a superior and qualifying affirmation: ‘Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force; that thoughts rule the world.’ ”
