There has never been a time without injustice. Much of what seems to be the collapse of civilization all around us is that as never before, we can see it. What is unprecedented about this time is that so many of us can make such a difference in almost the farthest corners of the world. If we make the effort, of course. But even without effort, the information that comes at us is at the level of deluge, and it threatens to increase as we come up with more ways to have eyes and ears to the world. Of course, this coverage in itself changes something of the nature of the world, but what one must realize is that wrongs would still occur without it. We must open ourselves to what is possible, now that the genie is out of the bottle. For perhaps it is a blessing if we make it out to be; the future has always been ours to shape.
