As Paola Antonelli, senior curator of architecture and design at the Museum of Modern Art, stated in a recent New York Times piece, “We live not in the digital, not in the physical, but in the kind of minestrone that our mind makes of the two.”

We are vastly less at risk and at the same time we are more worried — for the same reason.

"Spent: Looking for Change" This documentary is distressing beyond words. It's about the reality of financial services in the US - a topic about which few know the gory details, and even fewer are able to speak persuasively.
70 MILLION Americans lack access to finance. The "poverty taxes" this entails - overdrafts, cashing fees, payday loans - are neverending. It's not about being a bad credit risk. It's about being dealt a weak set of cards in a game that's rigged and distorted.
Also, mind you, this isn't a zero sum game - it doesn't mean that 'rich' clients would have to give up something in order for 'poor' clients to gain access. It's simply about providing access to the same tools from the outset. That's it.
This reminds me so much of microfinance in the developing world, yet in some ways an even more atrocious playing field given the sophistication of the game-playing that's possible in more developed

"We had a lot of trouble with western mental health workers who came here immediately after the genocide and we had to ask some of them to leave.

They came and their practice did not involve being outside in the sun where you begin to feel better. There was no music or drumming to get your blood flowing again. There was no sense that everyone had taken the day off so that the entire community could come together to try to lift you up and bring you back to joy. There was no acknowledgement of the depression as something invasive and external that could actually be cast out again.

Instead they would take people one at a time into these dingy little rooms and have them sit around for an hour or so and talk about bad things that had happened to them. We had to ask them to leave."

~A Rwandan talking to a western writer, Andrew Solomon, about his experience with western mental health and depression.

The situation is deeply miserable, even for those living slightly higher up on the shit pile. The biggest two indicators that someone will commit suicide in America are the two boxes they check on the census that are supposed to confer the most safety from misery, and the most advantage one could have in our society: white, and male. What could accuse privilege of failure more than seeking one’s own violent end?



This is about 9000% more interesting than actually attending CFR events. http://t.co/G0mGrrrouW
