What do we do now?
Walking down the road with my three and one-year-old girls they are oblivious to this international turmoil. The only winds of change which blow are the chill autumn breezes of this moment. I look at them and wonder how the world will be when they have little children of their own. Very different I presume. Not too hard I hope. I fear for them, for the world at this moment of transition. And I want to look back and say – in all honesty and conviction – we were there at that time of change, we played our part, we did our best.
As regular readers will know I have been blogging about transition, culture change and the economic crisis since Dreaming Aloud started. This time last year, on the verge of Ireland’s economic bailout and General Election, I wrote this…
“For every protester camped in the freezing dawn” says Paul Mason, Newsnight Economics editor “there may be many more quietly fuming in their living rooms who feel the same way.”
One small tangible thing I did was this: Yes! magazine are offeringthat if you give a $50 donation they will deliver 25 issues of their current issue on New Livelihoods to Occupy Wall Street – to educate and inform and you will get a free gift subscription – which is what I have just done. http://store.yesmagazine.org/g
