Sustainability requires a balance between producers, consumers and the resources necessary to sustain production. It occurs to me that hanging out in a park, relying on the charity of others is not sustainable. We in the occupy movement need to produce as much as we consume. We need to give back to society as much as we take. We need to be careful not to consume resources that could be used to assist the poor or the homeless. Every blanket, tent, article of clothing and meal we consume is one less of the same for the poor and the homeless. Let’s not be selfish. The opposite of greed is selflessness. Let’s practice what we preach.
