So do not blame people and their attitudes: the problem is not corruption or greed, the problem is the system that pushes you to be corrupt. The solution is not ‘Main street, not Wall street,’ but to change the system where main street cannot function without Wall street. Beware not only of enemies, but also of false friends who pretend to support us, but are already working hard to dilute our protest. In the same way we get coffee without caffeine, beer without alcohol, ice-cream without fat, they will try to make us into a harmless moral protest. But the reason we are here is that we had enough of the world where to recycle your Coke cans, to give a couple of dollars for charity, or to buy Starbucks cappuccino where 1% goes for the Third World troubles is enough to make us feel good. After outsourcing work and torture, after the marriage agencies started to outsource even our dating, we see that for a long time we were allowing our political engagements also to be outsourced—we want them back.

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.

“my cats” by Charles BukowskiI know. I know.they are limited, have differentneeds and concerns.but I watch and learn from them. I like the little they know, which is so much. they complain but never worry,they walk with a surprising dignity. they sleep with a direct simplicity thathumans just can’t understand.their eyes are more beautiful than our eyes. and they can sleep 20 hours a day without hesitation or remorse. when I am feeling low all I have to do iswatch my cats and my courage returns. I study these creatures. they are my teachers.


“my cats” by Charles Bukowski


I know. I know.
they are limited, have different
needs and 
concerns.

but I watch and learn from them. 
I like the little they know, 
which is so 
much. 

they complain but never 
worry,
they walk with a surprising dignity. 
they sleep with a direct simplicity that
humans just can’t 
understand.

their eyes are more 
beautiful than our eyes. 
and they can sleep 20 hours 
a day 
without 
hesitation or 
remorse. 

when I am feeling 
low 
all I have to do is
watch my cats 
and my 
courage 
returns. 

I study these 
creatures. 

they are my 
teachers.
