So perhaps one reason why the Occupy Wall Street folks are not handing out a giant list o' policy demands is because frankly, we already know what we should be doing. OWS is just reminding us to wake up and do it already.
Faith is a very effective technology for maintaining emotional equilibrium even when perceived facts warrant otherwise. This might sound like a cynically sarcastic criticism, but it's actually a flat-out compliment. And that in turn might sound like a cynically utilitarian observation. There is, however, a whole bunch of heft beyond that, too.
Try, for example, replacing "faith" here with "optimism": the same core idea comes through. No matter what you call it---nor whether you bring a big glob of theology along with it or not---here is a tougher help than most: a generosity towards the future.
Hmm. Like to talk. A bit too much. Rarely terse. Fond of fun. Like to run. Grumpy when unfed, unrested. Like green things, to be around and to eat. Like languages, to be around and to eat. Am stretchy. Mostly in the hip and shoulder joints, but especially with that whole "being on time" thing. More later, I promise.
