Not for Sale
With regard to the megacorps buying up all our water (“The Great American Water Crisis,” by Maude Barlow and Wenonah Hauter, November 2013): We are witnessing what a 14th-century preachers’ manual, Fasciculus Morum, long ago observed about avarus (avarice): “When it has gained the whole earth, it wants the sea; and after that, it soon craves for what is in the air. And by rising thus it knows no limit.”
In the April 2013 issue, it was disconcerting to see the juxtaposition of Wesley Granberg-Michaelson’s well-intentioned but tepid “Breaking the Impasse” with the two articles on Martin Luther King Jr. The title of the statement by Christian Churches Together in the U.S.A., “We Dare Not Postpone Action,” perfectly captures what we need to do now for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community.
