Citações Paul Glover

„We printed our own money because we watched Federal dollars come to town, shake a few hands, then leave to buy rainforest lumber and fight wars.“

—  Paul Glover

http://www.wholeearth.com/issue/2092/article/33/local.currency.in.each.other.we.trust (Whole Earth Catalog), Spring 1998
Contexto: “We printed our own money because we watched Federal dollars come to town, shake a few hands, then leave to buy rainforest lumber and fight wars. Ithaca's HOURS, by contrast, stay in our region to help us hire each other. While dollars make us increasingly dependent on transnational corporations and bankers, HOURS reinforce community trading and expand commerce which is more accountable to our concerns for ecology and social justice.”.

„While dissecting the universe scientists discovered that uranium, a metal invisibly boiling, can boil water to spark electricity.“

—  Paul Glover

http://www.paulglover.org/8812.html (“Ithaca Power”) comprehensive energy survey, received grant from Fund for Investigative Journalism, December 1988
Contexto: “While dissecting the universe scientists discovered that uranium, a metal invisibly boiling, can boil water to spark electricity. They believed the 'peaceful atom' would give cheap clean power. Recent years cause many to doubt this.”

„While Greens are horrified at corporate and consumer trashing of planet and society, our message is primarily confident and affirmative.“

—  Paul Glover

http://www.paulglover.org/greenpresident.html (Green Party Presidential candidacy page), 2004
Contexto: While Greens are horrified at corporate and consumer trashing of planet and society, our message is primarily confident and affirmative. Greens foster grassroots nonprofit and worker-managed enterprises that repair nature. Greens can govern to literally rebuild America's cities and suburbs, such that neighborhoods become energy-efficient; productive of food and fuel; respectful of water; safe and fun to live in. We can restore regional agriculture, rural economies, and habitat.

„When conservatives don't conserve and liberals don't liberate, Greens become centrists, because we directly address the central concerns of average Americans for healthy food, clean water and air;“

—  Paul Glover

[http:/www.paulglover.org/greenprez.html] (“Green Giant,” Syracuse New Times, cover story regarding Green Party Presidential candidacy) 2003-08-23
Contexto: When conservatives don't conserve and liberals don't liberate, Greens become centrists, because we directly address the central concerns of average Americans for healthy food, clean water and air; for secure housing; for reliable health care and satisfying work. By contrast, Democratic and Republican party leaders are dangerous extremists, indulging extremes of violence and greed, converting global wealth and human decency into chaos.

„The following proposals are offered to the Occupy movement, to restore this American republic to control by its full electorate;“

—  Paul Glover

http://www.paulglover.org/occupy.html (preamble to “Occupy Philly: A Green Agenda”) 2011-11-12
Contexto: “The following proposals are offered to the Occupy movement, to restore this American republic to control by its full electorate; to free its markets for the employment and enjoyment of all workers; to transfer control of money to its public and to establish responsible banking; to secure homes from seizure; to assure quality education and medical care for all; to refresh America's soil, water and air for the health of endless generations; and to rebuild its cities toward balance with nature.”

„The era of road widening in our narrow valley will end. The era of trollies, buses, bicycles, pedicabs, cargo bikes and pedestrian amenity will accelerate.“

—  Paul Glover

http://www.paulglover.org/mayor.html (Green Party of Tompkins County, Mayoral candidacy, campaign flyer), 2003
Contexto: The era of road widening in our narrow valley will end. The era of trollies, buses, bicycles, pedicabs, cargo bikes and pedestrian amenity will accelerate. Center city will become home for thousands of humans rather than cars, to the benefit of local businesses. The era of worrying about paying for health care will be replaced by free and at-cost care through mutual aid clinics. The era of discarding the young, particularly kids of color, will be replaced by skills and work that give them pride and power. Likewise senior citizens will find here lifelong appreciation for their capabilities. The era of police respect for civil liberties will expand respect for police. The development of creative work for all will reduce crime.

„The world is coming to a beginning rather than an end.“

—  Paul Glover

http://www.paulglover.org/metroeco.html (Metropolitan Ecology syllabus, section 7, Temple University), April 2007
Contexto: “The world is coming to a beginning rather than an end. We have the knowledge, tools, creativity, and capital to proceed. Our challenge is merely to begin where we live, with whatever capabilities are at hand.”

„An empire can do a lot of damage as it flails deeper into quicksand.“

—  Paul Glover

http://www.paulglover.org/0109.html (“Why the United States Will Lose this War,” Ithaca Community News), 2001-09-24
Contexto: “An empire can do a lot of damage as it flails deeper into quicksand. Wrapping ourselves in flags does not pull us free. Permanent war justifies permanent unquestioned dominance by military and industrial interests.”

„Dollars control people. Community currencies connect people.“

—  Paul Glover

http://www.paulglover.org/9510.html (HOUR Town, cover story), October 1995

„War fans spit on the principles of the American Revolution when they charge obediently wherever their president points our flag.“

—  Paul Glover

http://www.paulglover.org/9103.html (Ithaca Times, letter to editor), March 1991
Contexto: “War fans spit on the principles of the American Revolution when they charge obediently wherever their president points our flag.  Many flag-wavers know little about the U. S. Constitution, but can explain soap operas and football in detail.”

„As usual, the future will be different.“

—  Paul Glover

http://www.paulglover.org/0901.html (“Prepare for the Best,” Philadelphia City Paper, cover story) 30, 2009-01-30
Contexto: “As usual, the future will be different. Philadelphia's responses to global warming and market cooling, high fuel and food prices, health unsurance, mortgages, student debt and war will decide whether our future here becomes vastly better or vastly worse. Whether we're the Next Great City or Next Great Medieval Village.”

„Located in a low-income Philadelphia neighborhood, the Patch Adams free clinic will provide  community-based health care that is genuinely non-profit, preventive, humane and fun.“

—  Paul Glover

http://www.paulglover.org/patchadams.html (Patch Adams free clinic manifesto), June 2010
Contexto: “Located in a low-income Philadelphia neighborhood, the Patch Adams free clinic will provide  community-based health care that is genuinely non-profit, preventive, humane and fun.  It is a refuge for doctors and nurses who want time to heal patients.  It is a refuge for patients who want to be treated with dignity.”

„All of America's institutions have become too big to change.  Like sumo wrestlers in a basketball game, they move too slow.“

—  Paul Glover

http://www.paulglover.org/1105.html (“From the Middle Class to the Mutual Class”), 2011-05-07
Contexto: “All of America's institutions have become too big to change.  Like sumo wrestlers in a basketball game, they move too slow.  Big Government, Big Oil, Big Insurance, Big Finance, Big Agriculture, Big Highway, Big Education, Big Military, Big Prison, Big Police, Big Poverty-- these feed on disaster and control.  They no longer exist primarily to fix problems, but to grow.”

„Growth is a good thing, up to about seven feet tall, then it starts to get inconvenient.  People eight feet tall bang their heads, their backs ache, their circulation slows, they spend more for food and clothes, and when they fall it really hurts.  Who can they make love to? ---The same is true of cities.“

—  Paul Glover

http://www.paulglover.org/8709.html (“What’s Next for Ithaca?”), The Grapevine, cover story, 1987-09-15
Contexto: “Growth is a good thing, up to about seven feet tall, then it starts to get inconvenient.  People eight feet tall bang their heads, their backs ache, their circulation slows, they spend more for food and clothes, and when they fall it really hurts.  Who can they make love to? ---The same is true of cities.  After a certain size they get more frustrating than exciting: People collide and anger turns to crime.  Streets become dangerous, housing costs more, tax rates rise, schools teach less, structures dwarf people, air smells stale, water fouls and traffic slows no matter how wide the roads.”

„Action without theory is reckless; theory without action is worthless.“

—  Paul Glover

(speech at Center for Popular Economics, Summer Institute), 2006-07-27

„Los Angeles is an army camped far from its sources of supply, using distant resources faster than nature renews them.“

„Community organizers are motivated to promote the dignity of the nation, the beauty of people and planet.“

—  Paul Glover

http://www.issuu.com/metroeco/docs/htp.1 (“How to Take Power,” book) 2011
Contexto: “Community organizers are motivated to promote the dignity of the nation, the beauty of people and planet.  They don't tolerate injustice.  History depends more on such common folks than on presidents and generals.  Democracy works because of their generosity.”
