Clear, concise goals in troubled times

It lacks the punch of a crowd's chant. It won’t fit on a bumper sticker. It is unlikely to topple wayward, compromised and corrupted governments.

But if you are looking for a concise summary of essential needs in these troubled times, consider the official objectives of the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL), the Quaker lobbying arm in Washington, DC:

We seek a world free of war and the threat of war.
We seek a society with equity and justice for all.
We seek community where every person’s potential may be fulfilled.
We seek an earth restored.
