“ways must be found to control advertising” and to persuade people to adopt a new understanding about the quality of life.

ADDED: I see I already had a tag for Holdren. Back in 2009, he wrote: “A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States.” I said “So… should we relax and enjoy the recession?”… which, in light of Holdren’s newer nuttiness sounds more sexual than I think I intended at the time.
CORRECTION: I should say that back in 2009, I wrote about that passage, linking to an article about Holdren being asked about the quote, which he’d written back in 1973. I can see that the item I picked up today is from the same site CNS news that I’d linked to in ’09. (And that the link had gone dead. I’ve replaced it with a similar link from 2010.)
Clicking around at CNS, I see that old book also said: “The fetus, given the opportunity to develop properly before birth, and given the essential early socializing experiences and sufficient nourishing food during the crucial early years after birth, will ultimately develop into a human being.”
Oh, it’s just an old book.
Appearing on a February 11 panel titled “The Winter of Our Discontent” at The New York Institute for the Humanities, former long-term Service Employees International Union leader Stephen Lerner spoke in favor of Occupy Wall Street’s anti-capitalist tactics.
“How do we create a mood in the nation where we’re occupying our workplaces, where we’re shutting down our workplaces?” Lerner asked, ” … where workers are sitting in, where workers are shutting down their places of work, and when the police come, when the injunctions come, we’re all there with them, so we can really deal with part of the reason that the economy’s so screwed up … which is a few people have got all the power.”
“Think stew, think hope, death to the Stockholm Syndrome!”
With video cameras rolling, Lerner made a case that Occupy protesters should shut down not just workplaces, but also the shareholder meetings of public companies…
