It's kind of funny, but it's also kind of scary, because it really does seem, reading about injustice, both locally and globally, that current patterns are so entrenched that little changes are hardly worthwhile. In fact, in some ways, that's why I'm studying public policy in the first place: I don't really think change on the individual level is enough to turn us around, so we have to put a system in place that will make us do better. And, of course, there's the question about whether working inside the system to change it can be effective. But I sure don't like a lot of what currently goes on!
I always leave that class either wanting a big drink, wanting to tear down the current corporate regime or, like today, both.
