"The forces in a capitalist society,
The amazing thing about many (not all) the people I have met in these situations - I am angrier about the injustice and unfairness of how they are being treated then they are themselves. Many align with their faith and find strength, forgiveness, and the fortitude to cope. Others shrug it off and get about doing what little they can with what materials they can afford. Others it seems, have lived in some form of unjust and unfair conditions all of their lives - my anger and passion bemuses them, they have no energy left for such goings on. They have to get about the business of a life that is yoked to incredible suffering and struggle.
Philanthropy is commendable,
but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook
the circumstances of economic injustice
which make philanthropy necessary.
--Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
In Planetary remembrance to all who are suffering, most especially our planetary brothers and sisters experiencing the ravages of the flooding in Mexico.
