Digest

The inimitable Rebecca Solnit here at The Guardian ~ "Call Climate Change What it is - Violence."

Photographer Nina Berman here in Columbia Magazine on the infrastructure and point of contemporary photojournalism.

An interview with Thomas Piketty here at the Institute for Public Policy Research (UK) and, also at The Guardian, this "manifesto" issued by he and a baker's dozen other French intellectuals defending a basic proposition: "It is time to recognise that Europe's existing institutions are dysfunctional and need to be rebuilt. The central issue is simple: democracy and the public authorities must be enabled to regain control of and effectively regulate 21st century globalised financial capitalism."

Finally, this essay by pianist Vijay Iyer at the Asian American Writers Workshop exploring 'Our Complicity With Excess.'
