"We, the protesters of Ferguson and beyond, in order to fulfill the democratic promise of our union, establish true and lasting justice, accord dignity and standing to everyone, center the humanity of oppressed people, promote the brightest future for our children, and secure the blessings of freedom for all black lives, do ordain and dedicate ourselves to this movement of radical liberation."

Global Divestment Day NYC
February 13, 2015

A group of roughly 200 hardy demonstrators rallied in bitter cold before the NY Stock Exchange at Wall Street and Exchange Place in NYC to call for institutional divestment from the fossil fuel industry, with particular emphasis on university divestment, as these institutions of higher learning really ought to know better than to continue such support with their endowment and pension monies—an excellent point to be making.

Braving near zero degree wind chills, participants heard from several speakers over the course of...

#MillionsMarchNYC POV
Despite the biting wind chill on December 13, some 40-50,000 strong turned out to voice their protest in NYC for the National Day of Anger.

Protests continued through the night in Brooklyn, Harlem and mid-town Manhattan snarling traffic and keeping the police busy.

As for the police, I've never seen so many smiling, polite and helpful police as those at this afternoon's march, clearly under 'smiling orders' from on high. 

It was disturbing to see the sidewalks thronged with astonished Xmas shoppers oblivious to what has been going on since the Garner grand jury decision. http://youtu.be/gGhf---936g

Meeting up at Zuccotti Park with British actor and comedian Russell Brand, Cecily McMillan and a wealth of Occupy Wall Street's regulars marched along Broadway and down Wall Street to Federal Hall where they claimed the steps for a special treat: a demonstration of the seemingly inexhaustible wit and humor of Russell Brand, along with the powerful clarity of Cecily McMillan and the soft-spoken brilliance of David DeGraw.

Confronting Climate Change: Insights from the Nuclear Disarmament Movement
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gN1jsTAjSg&index=1&list=PLEEDF068B6959FF33

Having attended this talk, authentic and concrete as it was, I can tell you that it personifies, painfully, the liberal delusion that industrial capitalism can somehow be scaled back to a well-regulated, sustainable version of same and still call itself 'capitalism,' all that via the extant political parties, process and private industries, and within the 20-50 years before climate change starts to get ugly. 

It is perhaps a moot argument whether radically transforming or otherwise overthrowing capitalism, the de facto driver of climate change, is any less delusional, given a similar set of highly improbable factors. And, it is worth noting that the me-too industrial consumption in any so-called 'socialist' regimes has always been dwarfed by consumption in real existing capitalist cultures. At least the anti-capitalist viewpoint is honestly confronting the real driver, not hiding the perpetual growth mantra of capitalism per se behind the blanket of global craving for industrialization as progress.

It is also worth noting that during the Q&A as Ms. Oreskes articulated her supercilious pro-capitalist liberal stance, many in the audience saw fit to get up and leave.

We should perhaps be discussing which perspective is the more dignified way for us individually and as a species, and for industrial civilization as we know it, to end. The fantasy of the market or that of political revolution?

Story
Tagline
"Where revolutionary meets Wall Street"
Introduction
Fiction More Powerful Than Fact
The Nine Inch Bride Series

Understand the times in which we live through a daring fictional lens as relevant and powerful as the best non-fiction and journalism of today—Noam Chomsky and Chris Hedges come to mind—then add in a bonfire of good imaginative fun.

Nine Inch Bride is a remarkably original and literate series of political novels, at once visionary and provocative in a way that will leave you with the wise and determined smile of the Guy Fawkes mask.

The literary antidote to Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged? If you accept Rand's homage to capitalism and the ethos of live-and-let-die, you may find yourself converted by the end of the Nine Inch Bride series. The first book, An Epiphany On Wall Street, where revolutionary first meets 'The Street,' derails the modern Randist in a well-paced and intriguing 277 pages.

Working at many levels to recast today's big political questions in a fresh lens, the story grows from a psychological study, deeply revealing of our times and equally disturbing behind its gossamer veil of normal life, into a kind of meta-democratic polemic in a riotous dialog led by the perspectives of the unique and eloquent Sa.

Uncorrupted by financial dependencies or fear of legal retribution, the heroine Sahar, or Sa for short, confronts banking elites that are destroying America, co-opting daily lives, and scamming the people's democracy as they mold the world in their very image. She is one of a kind, a balletic young Arundhati Roy wrapped in American tights. If nothing else, her story in this series will inform, enchant and enthrall you with a renewed sense of the achievable.

Book Two, A Stone of Conscience, is available exclusively at http://NineInchBride.com.
