that isnt the first time ive read of red cross being AWOL in a crisis...their forte is collecting donations, not in putting them to use..


Assuming these accounts of the Red Cross and FEMA are true, this has a strangely reactionary effect: The corruption or incompetence of traditional institutions in the midst of a crisis supports the right wing meme that government can't do anything. don't get me wrong - I think it is awesome that occupy is helping people in the communities where they live. this is not only the humane thing to do - it helps build solidarity and organization for something truly transformational. But we have to face the fact that it also further undermines the legitimacy of government.
