A crash course in changing the world.
|What surprised me most about how people react in a crisis is who they become.
First, they preserve themselves.
Then, they seek group preservation.
Then, they try to place blame.
Then, they seek Justice.
Finally, they renormalize.
I see this lately with people trying to get justice from Goldman Sachs and those who asked for a bailout and participated in the huge financial crisis that we are undergoing right now.
We are trying to place blame and seek justice, as the march on Wall Street by the AFL-CIO showed today.
It is my hope that we NEVER renormalize the giant gap between the rich and the poor in this country. We need to always keep fighting, and seeking justice.
