A GOOD FOOTBALL TEAM RELIES MORE ON HARMONIOUS COORDINATION OF EFFORT THAN INDIVIDUAL SKILL.

Teamwork is a "cooperative effort by the members of a team to achieve a common goal." The key words in the definition are cooperative effort. Without the support of the entire group, no team can long endure. Football players quickly learn that no member of the team can be a star in every play. Most moments of glory are built upon a long series of plays, each won by committed, determined, bone-jarring blocking and tackling. A winning team is one whose members recognize that when one member of the team is successful, the entire team wins. Conversely, a sure way to develop a losing formula is to create an environment in which team members compete with one another instead of the opponent. When all members give their best in every situation-whether they are carrying the ball or clearing the way for someone else-the team wins and so does each individual member of it.

In spite of what the media tell us, we know that the good life is not for sale. We understand that the good life is something we make together, in partnership with other people and in harmony with nature. Because we realize that happiness, health, security, and meaning come to us largely as gifts, we feel called to preserve those gifts, enhance them if we can, and pass them on.

We need to speak up, to say boldly why we fight for good schools, why we build houses for the homeless, why we protect open space, why we look after the ailing and the elderly, why we pay taxes without grumbling, why we honor government as a force for public good. In a society obsessed with competition, we need to say why we practice cooperation. In a culture addicted to instant gratification, we need to champion long-term healing and the welfare of coming generations.

We need a new vision of the good life. We need a dream worthy of grown-ups, one that values simplicity over novelty, conservation over consumption, harmony over competition, community over ego.

After the September 11th attacks, when Americans longed to know how we could help heal our country, politicians told us to go shopping. When Americans wondered how we could reduce our dependence on oil, and thus our entanglement with despotic regimes in the Middle East, our leaders told us to drive and fly. As we look around at this richest of nations and see the national debt piling up, hospitals closing, schools failing, prison populations swelling, forests dying, glaciers melting, farmland disappearing, children going without medical care, and countless people sleeping on the streets, our leaders offer us tax cuts.
