“When we look at the tarsands, and when we look at all the other manifestations [of capitalism] […] we know what the problem is. We spend a lot of our time focusing on the symptoms of the big problem […] which tend to overwhelm us, [but which] are all symptoms of our economic paradigm. Until we as a movement start organizing in a way that directly confronts this economic paradigm and that stops business as usual, we’re going to continue to be spinning our tires.” –Clayton Thomas Muller
