daily asterisk

The future is named development by the businesses and gentrification by the activists…. Reconciliation will occur through a new conversation where the developers talk about the compassion they hold for those on the margin. The new conversation for the social activists is to acknowledge that without some wealth coming into their neighborhoods, they will continue to depopulate and deteriorate. The way into a future is to build relatedness between these groups. Beneath their positions is a common concern for the well-being of the city. A perpetually wounded city serves no one’s concerns. There are many examples where these groups have come together. It is all possible when people decide to work something out rather than trying to win and being right. It is the shift in conversation and a care for the whole that makes the difference.
