What would John Ruskin Say?
John 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.
