With the unveiling of the WHOLE HEALTH PLAN yesterday, we have established the pillars of a season of moral repair. Through it, we will harness the power of American decency in service to the healing of our country.
The pillars of a politics of conscience alter the prevailing political, social and economic patterns that dominate America, returning us to our deepest democratic roots and humanitarian principles.
The pillars are:
An agenda for economic justice...
We will repair the damage done by trickle-down economics.
A Department of Children and Youth...
We will repair the damage done to millions of traumatized children.
Mass mobilization to reverse climate change...
We will repair the damage done to the earth.
A Department of Peace...
We will repair the damage done to America’s moral authority around the world.
The Whole Health Plan...
We will repair the damage done by an obsolete healthcare system that treats symptoms but not cause.
From free college tuition to a removal of the college loan debt to universal healthcare to the expansion of Social Security to the adoption of a Universal Basic Income, we will transition from an economic to a humanitarian bottom line. We will make this question the core principle of all public policy: What is it that would help people thrive? Thus we will pave the way to greater peace and prosperity for all.
Turning love into a political force is not a pipe dream; it is simply a choice. These are extraordinary times and we have it within us to respond to them in extraordinary ways.
As your president, I will make sure we do. On January 20, 2021, may the healing begin...
