Under his video "2020 Vision," Darryl Holter explains why he wrote that song. For convenience what he wrote is repeated at the end of this post. This is a follow up of a long Twitter conversation about, for example, what Peter F. Drucker called a "post-capitalist society," which we have been calling Great Capitalism in said conversation. The source is in his 1992 Harvard Business Review essay "The New Society of Organizations." The link between Holter's song and Drucker's essay was made by Rick Wartzman, the author of the October 2014 article "What Peter Drucker Knew About 2020."
By going into Twitter to see any updates by Wartzman, I grasped the importance of both of the linked items to update the above mentioned tweets conversation, After listening to the song, about 20/20 vision, I went to find out what 20/17 Vision means. For example, quora.com says:
If you can see 20/17, it means that you can see letters that are even smaller than size 20 while standing at 20 feet, meaning that your vision is better than 20/20.
By being limited to 2020, Holter's vision satisfies the limits of #TheWealthNations. Our vision for 2017 is based on what we claim as "There is nothing so powerful as #TheWealthofGlobalization whose time has come."
Why I Wrote 2020 Vision
I wrote the song “2020 Vision” in December, a few weeks after the election. I wanted to propel listeners into the future—the next presidential election– and show how Trump voters, especially working class people who believed his promises in 2016, now saw that his policies have betrayed their trust and worsened their already tenuous situation. I used the analogy of not being able to see clearly without eyeglasses. When we have the proper prescription our vision can be corrected and become 20-20. My fear is that Trump will betray his voters. My hope is that they will understand and vote against him in 2020.
The song predicts a number of very serious policy changes that will hurt most voters, but especially Trump voters. The bad news is that Republican majority wants to dismantle health care, turn social security into a private insurance plan, and deny medical care to the poor while at the same time giving a huge tax break to the rich.
But the good news is that the American people are putting on their glasses and seeing Trumpism for what it really is. Halting the effort to dismantle the Affordable Care Act is the first round in a long road to take back our country. While the media attributes the debacle to disagreements among Republicans, the truth is that popular, grass-roots pressure from below by people like you and I was powerful enough to stiffen the backs of Democrats, frighten Republican lawmakers, and hammer nails into the coffin of Trumpcare.
