What would John Ruskin Say?

John RuskinJohn Ruskin greatly influenced the social justice thinking of Gandhi, Thoreau and King.

What would Ruskin say about today’s Occupy America movement?

He might say:

Wealth per se is not the issue; it is about how wealth is created and how that wealth is used. A civilized society simply cannot condone exploitation and greed.

He also might say:

It is unpatriotic for the so-called Job Creators to not risk more of their profits to preserve and protect society, while our soldiers, sailors and marines risk their very lives for that same society.

<IMHO> Fred Jacobsen
