"There will be no economic or political justice for the poor, people of color, women or workers within the framework of global, corporate capitalism. Corporate ...capitalism, which uses identity politics, multiculturalism and racial justice to masquerade as politics, will never halt the rising social inequality, unchecked militarism, evisceration of civil liberties and omnipotence of the organs of security and surveillance. Corporate capitalism cannot be reformed, despite its continually rebranding itself. The longer the self-identified left and liberal class seek to work within a system that the political philosopher Sheldon Wolin calls “inverted totalitarianism,” the more the noose will be tightened around our necks. If we do not rise up to bring government and financial systems under public control—which includes nationalizing banks, the fossil fuel industry and the arms industry—we will continue to be victims."
This will change lives.

Happy Anniversary, occupiers! Six years ago today we set up camp at Dilworth Plaza to give a voice to the voiceless and to take a stand for economic and social ...justice for all. Our tent city is no more, but, remember, you can't evict an idea. The revolution continues. See you in the streets!
