Joy Arises, Rules Fall Apart

On the second anniversary of that day in lower Manhattan when people sat down in outrage and stayed in dedication and solidarity and hope, remember how unpredictably the world changes, remember those doing heroic work that you might hear little or nothing about but who are all around you, remember to hope and remember to build.

Background

Long before Occupy Wall Street took form, and long before the corporate media caught on, two of our top columnists at Truthdig foresaw the economic calamity that still grips our country. Chris Hedges devoted his time and energy warning Americans about the disastrous symbiosis between big business and our government, both in his columns and in the streets. Meanwhile, Truthdig Editor in Chief Robert Scheer covered the buildup to the meltdown for over a decade, naming names and taking no prisoners in his latest book, in his own columns and in his zinger of an acceptance speech at the 2010 Webby Awards -- held, as it happened, in the heart of Wall Street.
