Occupying Wall Street in Times Square

October 16, 2011

For all my adult life I’ve read about a philosophical or spiritual concept called either  the Zeitgeist or the Spiritus Mundi or the hand of God.  By whatever name, it is meant to move the world, at times against the world’s will, in the direction the world need go.

That direction is always and ever to greater and greater dignity and greater and greater freedom.  This evening in Times Square this philosophical and spiritual concept felt as palpable and present as my own flesh or the flesh and  presence of the thousands and thousands of souls there gathered  to demand their  dignity and demand their freedom.

Come.

    Thank you for another lovely post, Patrick. Our big rally and march here in Boston took place in 85 degree weather over the course of six hours, and the solidarity and genuine care that took place between activists of various political persuasions was heartening, to say the least. Whether it was handing out free water or lightening someone’s load by helping to carry bags and signs, I felt a commitment to caring for one’s neighbor among the participants that I hope will be someday be reflected in our economic and political structures. Looking forward to more updates from NYC!
