"Efficiency’s Promise: Too Good to Be True" "More Jobs Predicted for Machines, Not People" An invisible thread connects David Owen's The Conundrum ( "Efficiency’s Promise: Too Good to Be True" ) and Erik Brynjolfsson's and Andrew McAfee's Race Against the Machine ( "More Jobs Predicted for Machines, Not People" ).

To Bear Witness and to Speak the Truth « Charles Eisenstein (11/28/11) One of the recurrent debates within the Occupy movement is whether it should adhere strictly to non-violent methods, or rather embrace a “diversity of tactics” (including, presumably, violent ones). This debate is futile unless it considers a deeper question: “Tactics to achieve what?” Without clarity here, the question of non-violence becomes a debate about moral philosophy. As I have written elsewhere , I think the purpose of the Occupy movement goes well beyond redressing inequities in income, employment, or debt.
