I’m often asked why I visit Disney’s parks so often. Aren’t they boring, plastic-fantastic, a bunch of fantasy and imagination over and over again?
No, I never get bored. Yes, Disney is fantasy and imagination and mind-blowing creativity. It also embodies the most powerfully manifested vision in history: Walt Disney’s vision. At its simplest, it was to make people happy, anyone and everyone. His success is staggering and undeniable.
Consider some of history’s most recognized symbols: the Egyptian pyramids, the Roman Colosseum, the Catholic cross, the star of David, the flags of China, Russia, and the United States. All of these will likely last as long as the human race. Yet they’re all controversial, all polarizing. Many have led to wars and the deaths of millions.
Now consider Disney’s vision and the creations borne of it – the dozens of characters, the hundreds of movies, the theme parks encircling our planet. Most of humanity knows of Mickey Mouse, Walt Disney World, and other Disney creations – each one without controversy, zero. His vision brought joy and happiness to millions, maybe billions. No other person or event even comes close.
Walking through the parks, I walk this vision, his vision. Every ride, every theme, every image, every detail is an extension of his continuing dream.
“All of our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney.
Disney used imagination to spark happiness. Imagination allows the creation of whatever makes us happiest. Some contend this isn’t real. But if you believe in something, tangible or not, it is real, to you, and that’s what matters; the you part. Disney gave us a place where our imaginations could make us happy – in movies, theme parks, and in our minds. Hundreds of millions of people have experienced this, through his vision.
As I walk through Disney, I imagine how the vision of EarthCorp is an extension of Walt’s vision. EarthCorp is designed to make people happy, while preserving and protecting our planet. How? Humanity created our economic system, through our collective imaginations. It is not real; history shows no tangible evidence. Yet it controls our lives; we choose to believe it. EarthCorp recognizes this phenomenon, uses our entrenched economic system, and provides a way for everyone to prosper through “giving by receiving”, creating happiness for all who participate.
EarthCorp is simple, non-controversial, and beneficial to all members, businesses, and our planet. Membership is free, to anyone. Give feedback about retail businesses and their effect on our environment and you benefit economically. Following the primary concepts of Disney’s vision, EarthCorp makes people happy, without controversy, in a model that will help Earth and its residents exist in perpetuity. EarthCorpFoundation.org
“I only hope that we don’t lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a mouse.” – Walt Disney.
