We Are Creators, Not Custodians

I wrote this in June and it seems even more appropriate now, as we see our friends and neighbors occupy the streets in search of a fairer world.

We are not merely custodians of the world we occupy, we are its creators. Too many see themselves as astute critics; criticism is good, but participation is far more powerful.

That was part of some journaling I did during Netroots Nation, but I think it’s even more applicable to the Occupy movement.

I’ve never been more excited than to see my fellow citizens asserting their right to build the world they want to live in, rather than serve as custodians to what the elite have created.
