"Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages" -Thomas A. Edison

At first I was really perturbed and annoyed by the now probable appointment of Carolyn Kennedy to the senate seat vacated by Hillary Clinton. I remain guarded about the misuse of power by a dynasty, brother offered another perspective that I found comforting and it seemed to make sense:

Now that we live in an era of cut-throat politics, it takes profound amounts of money, mud-slinging and an almost psychopathic character to survive 'an election.' Those who survive are most likely going to pander to their donors who contribute because they can't get to the top without the help of money 'slid under the table.' Wouldn't it be amazing to have a crop of political leaders who surfaced without the taint of ugly campaigns? They'd surface with their energy and ideals intact, ready to serve?  Its a crap shoot, really, but...the idea seems worth a try seen as we've currently such a corrupt and destructive system.

So,...I'm now comfortable with the dynastic consideration of Carolyn Kennedy who, thus far, seems quite devoted to moral leadership of, by and for the people...rather than the 'corporation.' She has the leadership potential to be part of a brigade of prepared idealists who might be able to help us transcend this horrific state of affairs and rise to a higher level of social and environmental consciousness. Rock on. Go Carolyn go!
