I want to tell an American story. American history. But I need spaceships or I’ll get cranky.
—Joss Whedon about Firefly (via silcicc)
In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms. The first is freedom of speech and expression—everywhere in the world. The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way—everywhere in the world. The third is freedom from want—which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants-everywhere in the world. The fourth is freedom from fear—which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor—anywhere in the world.
PLEASE re-blog if you think Americans should be in the streets engaged in mass, non-violent movement to end poverty, control of politics by corporate interests and income inequality — rather than just sitting home and reading comic books.
I left my comics reading behind many decades ago, and I must admit that I am somewhat intrigued that a major publisher is basing a comic book on Occupy.
