The first step has to be to challenge the notion that our system is fine, that we just need to tweak it or get more involved to make it work better.   No.   It has to be dismantled totally.   It's not just a matter of coming up with a new document, but a matter of coming up with new values, a plan for survival, a strategy of resistance and eventual revitalization.  

 

Diversity is not diversity when different kinds of faces are saying the same thing.   Diversity is diversity when different faces say different things in a common effort to build something new.   The Occupy Movement was perhaps a start because it asked the right questions, but in any case we have a long way to go and no time to waste on handwringing about diversity that is not diversity.
