Occupy the System

November 29, 2011

I support the Occupy Movement and commend them for keeping a vagueness in their message rather that immediately working for some definite political end. It is essential that we keep an awareness of the inequities of wealth always present in our social and political discourse.

Still, the next step is to move from the critique to the positive work of creating a system that rationally and coherently distributes goods more fairly. This cannot be created in the mind, but only in the shared and practical realities of our daily lives.
