To Meet Our Needs

Please consider our recent overture to initiate public discussion about the process of criminality that hampers our ability to formulate sound policy, no matter what our point of view. The reason we chose the examples we did, was to illustrate how white-collar crime robs us of the opportunity to resolve differences and build relationships of respectful coexistence despite our variant cosmologies.

Conflict and confrontation are (as always) still necessary, but if we can agree to protect our common wealth from criminal predation, then we will at least have the resources to meet our needs. It's when they are no longer available that civil society breaks down, and violence becomes an acceptable alternative to discussion.
