HOMEWORK : a demand for the j20+ manifesto

Questions raised from Aug 22 Book Club...

- What does a global commons look like specifically? What would a manifesto of such outline?

- What are the potential lines of power when we think of a global identity instead of a national identity?

- What can we take from Klein? Specifically I am conflicted about how to reconcile the need to leap forward rather than move incrementally

- Should we make a list of demands (per Nandita) and not settle a focus for J20+? And who or what are we demanding this of? 
- What is the power chain and where can we find our power in it?

- Don't people need boundaries to have some semblance of order as they exist in the world?

- Nonpartisan question campaigns (tag the streets with moral questions): 
What type of work is worth more and why?
What work is worth less and why? etc
