image Details for the Recession GenerationConference (Comment On: Recession Generation: "fixing it" conference) by Frank M. Ortiz
The Recession Generation: How Millennials Can Maximize Their Impact and Thrive in Uncertain Times Saturday, July 9, 2016 9 am - 6 pm Omni Oakland Commons 4799 Shattuck Ave / Oakland, California 94609 The near collapse of the world’s economy in 2008 and the deep disparity of the recovery since have reignited longstanding arguments about capitalism and its inherent capacity to simultaneously produce remarkable wealth and poverty. This paradox especially confronts the millennial generation of students and recent college graduates who must weigh the proposition of decades of student debt against the uncertain prospect of entering a marketplace that may not provide the means or opportunity to pay it. This conference, co-hosted by EarthSharing.org, Robert Schalkenbach Foundation, and the Henry George School of Social Science, aims to help the millennial generation navigate the uncertainties of economic life through skill-sharing and other useful sessions that will introduce them to a wide array of professions and life paths that promise a modicum of economic stability and also afford the opportunity to get involved in an ongoing movement to address structural social and economic inequality.

image Silencing Hate Groups is Not the Way to Build a Better Society (Comment On: Shut Down Nazi Rally in Sacramento) by Max T. Furr
If all mankind minus one, were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind. –John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, Chapter 2 – Of the Liberty of Thought and Discussion.Here is a novel idea: reign in wrongheadedness and begin to use reason--a thing of which we human beings are supposed to be capable. Let's try some introspection and rational thought. We can either add to the hatred or try to understand it and thereby attempt to calm our emotions.Precisely what did the Sacramento protest against the white nationalist rally accomplish? More anger, more hatred and seriously injured people. Are we better off? Did we learn anything? Was the protest an appeal to rational thought or raw emotion?Virtually everyone knows that shouting down speakers and being generally disruptive isn't limited to rallies of hate groups and does nothing to improve understanding or civility. I've watched in dismay as liberals, progressives and conservatives alike attempt to silence each other by loud, antagonistic, in-your-face protests.I have a better approach to all of this: Let every group and every person speak, and listen to them. Know who they are and know their opinions.If we silence a hate group, will the members stop hating? Is it not true that a silent enemy of social harmony is much more dangerous than one who broadcasts his opinions? To know the opinions of others is to be informed and know whom to watch when their ideas are harmful. As well, to know the opinions of harmful groups could possibly inform the listeners of the root cause of such opinions and provide a means for correction.So, what should protesters against hate speech do?I am an advocate of what I call aggressive benevolence and universal empathy. A practical application of such a policy at a neonazi rally would be to set up, within hearing distance of the speakers, booths serving food and refreshments such as coffee and donuts. Treat their incivility with steadfast civility and kindness. Never be verbally or physically aggressive, but be sure to invite the press to witness the proceedings and actions.This nation is sinking deep into a mire of factional antipathy. The only lifeline to pull us out is not religion and it is not a counter hate group. It is a concerted application of the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
