At this juncture of your review of this document many among you will determine that the sentiments and prescriptions contained in my presentation, though laudable and relevant to our quest to create a more equitable society and humane cultural framework, do not address the critical matters that are central to a secular existence in this the second decade of the twenty-first century in the American national experience, and you would be correct.
However, it is my intent to commence the formulation of this agenda for a personal and a social renaissance in very comprehensive and specific terms in this portion of my cognitive musings.
Perhaps the most critical of considerations regarding this mammoth task of humanizing this civilization must we address the individual who wishes to commit to this laudable effort and the matter of how they might attain and retain in the longer term, a situation in which they and their families economic viability is preserved.

Armed with the results of your self-transcendence inventory does it become possible to chart a course of social entrepreneurialism where you are the master of your economic aspirations. The mission statement and strategic plan you formulate will reflect the fullest possible flowering of your normative system and the muse you wish to allow the greatest possible empirical expression.

Bernard, I look forward to hearing more of the strategy. Also, is the scope of the strategy delineated or open? Do you plan to consider ecological, economic, and other considerations or is there an anticipated scope and bounds to the perspectives?
Mark – The issues to which you refer reside at the epicenter of this undertaking and I have addressed them most fully in the PDF that appears beneath the Vision category. Subsequent to your review of that document I would be most interested in your assessment/analysis.
