Occupy Wall Street and Portland is the real deal and I hope they keep going. Occupy fuking Bank of America and Chase!!!
But the liberal class, by having refused to question the utopian promises of unfettered capitalism and globalization and by condemning those who did, severed itself from the roots of creative and bold thought, the only forces that could have prevented the liberal class from merging completely with the power elite. The liberal class, which at once was betrayed and betrayed itself, has no role left to play in the battle between us and corporate dominance. All hope lies now with those in the street.

Community Resilience in a Contracting Economy
Presented by Richard Heinberg,
Senior Fellow-in-Residence at the Post Carbon Institute
Evidence suggests that the national and global economies are at a turning point. What can communities do about this? How do we maintain services and avert social decline and unrest? There are no easy answers, but asking the questions is our first, necessary step toward finding adaptive strategies.
Author of ten books, including The Partyâ€™s Over, Peak Everything, and the newly-released The End of Growth: Adapting to Our New Economic Reality, Richard Heinberg is widely regarded as one of the worldâ€™s most effective communicators of the urgent need to transition away from fossil fuels.
Please join us on Friday, October 21st at noon
in the Portland Building Auditorium (1120 SW 5th Avenue, Portland, 2nd floor)for this presentation.
