A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature
We are being inundated by media and government condemnation of the “violence” committed in Ferguson in response to the Grand Jury’s failure to indict Darren Wilson for murdering Michael Brown.
However, there is no worse violence than that committed by an economic system that forces people into poverty,
And you want me to condemn the acts of desperate people who express their frustration in the only way they now see as bringing attention to injustice? Sorry, the violence of the state against all of us is the only violence I am willing to condemn. Now and forever.
