Power is Shifting

One of the hallmarks of this new era is that power is shifting away from the usual institutions of power (corporations, government, religions) and is becoming more emboldened and strengthened within individuals themselves. This power shift and changing dynamics are at times difficult to see because we are still drowning in the chaos of Trump. But every once in a while a burst of news will peak through this chaos and darkness and let us know that the growth of personal awareness and empowerment is on the rise.

For example, this little news report from Jonathan Swan, a reporter from Axios, shared information about how employees within corporations are revolting and demanding their corporate leaders stand up on social issues. This news gave me hope. I saw this as individuals coming together and stepping in to lead the charge where our institutions have failed.
