I took this photo at an Occupy Southern California Meet-Up called SPRING IS COMING.
Why, you might ask, are we fueling the evolution of Another Possible World with Coca-Cola and Pepsi?
Because it’s “free” - it was donated.
Sounds like the same reasoning that brought soda dispensing machines to Los Angeles public schools several years ago. Coca-Cola was willing to fund programs that our tax dollars were not made available to support.
Evolution is a messy business, and this photo, to me, encapsulates this reality. Perfect is the enemy of good.
But in my humble opinion, we have to stand up somewhere. Otherwise the words, “Another World Is Possible” become a sad joke.
Nothing is “free.”
We have to work for it.
