    I think what we're seeing is a crucial difference in hoped-for futures: some want to basically keep things as they are but make it more fair so everyone has the same chance at becoming a successful consumer/citizen and some want to change the whole order of things.

    I am torn. On the one hand, too many people are excluded from the scene of basic middle-class existence in the U.S. and it is just not right. On the other hand, I think that basic middle-class existence in consumerist capitalist culture is the height of impoverishment in terms of what it really means to be human. There has got to be more to life than buying things and watching TV etc.

    There are moments when the body is as numinous as words, days that are the good flesh continuing. -- Robert Hass
