I have an essay appearing with many others in ZNet’s “Reimagining Society Project,” here: http://www.zcommunications.org/znet/viewArticle/22022.

“As a people, a people diverse in countless ways yet united in the need to overthrow a mighty empire, we haven’t very well articulated what we want, in a way that corresponds to what’s possible and necessary. Our energy has been diverted into denial, faith in techno-fixes, fixations on individual lifestyle changes, and secondary conflicts, all of which keep us in thrall to those in power (who know very well what *they* want).”
