Framing Memo For OWSQuicklink submitted by Daniel Geery Permalink
Become a Fan
|OWS is a moral and patriotic movement. It sees Democracy as flowing from citizens caring about one another as well as themselves, and acting with both personal and social responsibility. Democratic governance is about The Public, and the liberty that The Public provides for a thriving Private Sphere. From such a democracy flows fairness, which is incompatible with a hugely disproportionate distribution of wealth. And from the sense of care implicit in such a democracy flows a commitment to the preservation of nature. [I am not always a fan of Dr. Lakoff, but I believe he's spot on here.]|
