I just watched the movie The Corporation and found it pretty fitting for a day like today. . .
Corporate power in the US seems like it's on a steady rise- the film is a good reminder that it doesn't need to be that way.
Appropriately, the film is available in it entirety for free online. Long watch, but well worth it. We have to know something about the world we live in before we can try to change it. . .
Some of my takeaways: End corporate personhood. Tax companies appropriately. Limit externalities.

I think on the balance I disagree with this article, though I sort of appreciate the experience of having read it (and especially the comments) for having forced me to think about it.
As a middle class white man it's easy for me to think that everything's fine in the world. And though this article argues that that's true in climbing it's definitely not true in society in general. I think the broader view is important.
(I just heavily edited this to reflect my own opinions more.)

This is a great little film. I don't know Michaela but I found this very inspiring. And beautifully shot.
Props to everyone involved, especially Michaela for sticking with such an insanely low percentage looking project. And for being motivated enough to drive to the Red every weekend.
