At the Occupy Wall Street site yesterday, I saw some people wearing a small enamel lapel pin with this design. I searched in vain for the man who was giving them away – I want one! It beautifully expresses the facts of income and social inequality in a clean, concise, and compelling graphic. Bravo to the designer!
Occupy Wall Street + Walter Benjamin +Pauline Christianity = Anaphoric Solidarity. Whaa? One of the strangest amalgams of intellectual systems I’ve come across, represented at OWS by two young men at a small table in the center of Zucotti Park.
