I am attending a Philanthropy, Consciousness, and Social Change conference whose theme is, "Paying Attention to What Matters Most." Closing ceremonies in a tent up in the Forest Primeval start in 5 minutes, ending 5 days of meetings. Soros Institute is here. People connected to Rockefeller are here. Calvert is represented. A few other foundations with hundreds of millions and Foundation officers in beards and beads. No one has mentioned the closing of our open society and of our compatriots' minds. I am afraid that when the unspoken is unspeakable we would rather just get on with our lives as best we can. In my 15 seconds in the closing circle, around our makeshift New Age altar, after our meditation and our Eskimo chant, after the childlike dancing in a ring bespeaking our innocence, I will ask, "If the summer of 07 marks the end of democracy in America, did we pay attention to what matters most?"
