    Note: I'm saving clippings and thoughts in preparation for the event (poster) on Nov. 19th at the VDL Neutra House. (More: see this post; all posts tagged--ahem--"glam").

    This blog post by Joel Olson, on "Whiteness and the 99%" begins to raise some of the issues that pertain not only to the #OWS movement, but what any progressive urbanism needs to acknowledge and deal with. I wonder if there are further posts that deal with gender issues at #OWS and beyond as well.

    Meanwhile, from Mike Davis (who, by the way, compares #OWS to the film They Live): Third, keep our eyes on the real prize. The great issue is not raising taxes on the rich or achieving a better regulation of banks. It’s economic democracy: the right of ordinary people to make macro-decisions about social investment, interest rates, capital flows, job creation, and global warming. If the debate isn’t about economic power, it’s irrelevant.

About this Blog

A bezoar is a mass of disparate pieces and materials. For this blog, you will find something somewhere between tweet-length posts and tumblelogging; inchoate thoughts; provocations and assorted scraps that don't fit anyplace else; criticisms of a political and geographic variety; ecoaffective ramblings; spatial imaginaries that don't conform. On Twitter: @AlJavieera; 1/3rd of @Demilit; bookmarked content: @AJFavorite.
