New York, Mandatory Interdependence, Specialization, and War

December 15th, 2015

Having just returned from my first trip to NYC, I have lots of thoughts for this and future podcasts. I've never felt so out-of-place, so far from home. I felt more at home in Nepal than I did in NYC.

At the same time, I had a visceral reaction when I visited the WTC memorial pools. I can't describe it well, but I remembered very clearly that our nation was attacked.
While I was there, I read an article about Wendell Berry's book The Unsettling of America that really made some interesting points about part of what was bothering me about being in NYC.
There is also the "what if the life support systems fail" questions, when in the City.
I want to speak clearly in opposition to attacks on people simply for being Muslim. Fighting words lead to fighting. And killing.
