Is this 1937 or 1929?
One person I consider especially fortunate to have within my circle of friends is Andrew Ginsburg in NewYork. I admire his blog greatly (link to it from the foot of this post). He comes at the issues from an apolitical common sense standpoint and his concern for humanitarianism is always to the forefront. His post below highlights concerns that I share about the current economic situation in the US.

The point I’d like add to Andrew’s comments is that the only option left to many now is that of self-help. If the government is unwilling or unable to create jobs we have to create our own. I believe this isn’t as impossible a task as it might at first seem. Global communication networks have enabled much bigger things than this to actually happen – just look at the Arab Spring. What it needs is commitment and a willingness for individuals to share and help each other, rather than just ourselves.
I’ll return to this topic in a future post , but for now here’s Andrew:
