Article on the politicization and privatization of public space.
“What we are beginning to see is the proliferation of democratic powers that grant us the possibility to express ourselves, but on no account to express our rights. The singular democratic right at stake is the right of politicization against aestheticization: the right to access the political realm from which we have been deprived, the polis, the only place where we may ensure our individual and collective freedom.”
That is the question being asked in a brilliant new Canadian social services campaign, which aims to get homeless and poor single mothers into education and career programs.

I still really want to go here and drive up highway 395 and over the mountains to Yosemite.
