Adorable Little Girl Explains Her Dream Of A 'Gift Community'
This un-staged mini-monologue comes from a six-year-old with a big dream for tomorrow. Her ideal community operates on Gift Economy, a practice in which the main operative for society is to become richer through giving, as explained by de-growth activist, Charles Eisenstein (he also explains what de-growth activism is).
The video was posted by YouTube user, Andrei Armeanu. In the "About" section, he includes part a line from Kahlil Gibran's poem On Children that speaks beautifully to this little girl's vision for a better community:
You may house their bodies but not their souls / For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow.
I hope the best for this kid's future because if all goes well for her, it will go well for many others, even if the only thing she ever does is to remind us once in a while to think with our hearts.
