Female nominees move woman presidency closer

What does it mean when the newspaper with “all the news that’s fit to print” endorses not one but two women Democrat nominees for president of the United States?

Has society made enough progress to create Mauitopia, the ideal society of the future? In the U.S. we have progressed beyond black slavery, making women’s rights equal, having black civil rights, and someday soon we might have a woman president.

Several countries around the world have already had women leading their country. As early as 1960 Sirimavo Bandaranaike of Sri Lanka became the first woman elected prime minister of a country. Golda Meir became prime minister of Israel in 1969, Indira Gandhi of India in 1966, and so have many other women been the leaders of their countries.

In 2009 I wrote the pamphlet, or mini book “Creating Mauitopia: Making Maui a Real Paradise” (updated edition available for free at mauitopia.org).

In Mauitopia there would be no violent crime, everyone would do what they love, and we would all live aloha.

Yes, we have made enough progress as a society and we are ready to create Mauitopia. Perhaps it will happen at the same time as we have our first woman president.
