""All of us who professionally use the mass media are the shapers of society. We can vulgarize that society. We can brutalize it. Or we can help lift it onto a higher level."
-- Bill Bernbach
"...we are living in the middle of a remarkable increase in our ability to share, to cooperate with one another, and to take collective action, all outside the framework of traditional institutions and organizations."
-- Clay Shirky, Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing without Organizations, 2009
"Making anything for yourself is a political act. The further we get from the creation of an object, the less we have a connection with the people, resources, and process. This limits how we assign value to objects.
If we can all start to make more and consume less, then we can be more thoughtful about the resources used to create the objects and food and garments that we fill our lives with."
-- Zeke Leonard, Assistant Professor, Syracuse University School of Design
