Thank you Mickey Z! That so needed saying…
The global “problems” being exposed by activists are not merely flaws within a basically fixable configuration.
Economic inequality isn’t a hiccup.
Epidemics of preventable diseases are not an anomaly.
Institutional privilege and the oppression it creates are not systemic glitches.
Capitalism—hell, all of industrial civilization—cannot be tenderly reformed into sustainability.
Let’s not waste resources trying to tweak the dominant culture.
Let’s instead connect as broadly as possible to cultivate the coalitions we’ll need to navigate the looming collapse.
Let’s unite…to create a softer place to land.
