The other day I was complimenting masaccio on his great piece, Mass Consumption Created and Killed the Middle Class and my frustration with some of Mark Blyth’s arguments in the Book Salon on Austerity: History of a Dangerous Idea. I found one of his ideas lacking, the whole, “it’s not about the personal ‘individual moral failings of the bankers,’ but the system.” Masaccio pointed out that, “…there must be 50 posts here from me and Cynthia and others showing how to prosecute these crimes. Not worth much I agree, but there is moral culpability.”

I used to work with a great organization called the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. Beyond their four tenants of social justice, simple living, spirituality and community, they also had some interesting bumper-stickers. I’m a sucker for a good bumper-sticker.
One from Pope Paul VI said, “If you want peace. work for justice.”
