Transition Cafe – Privilege and Transition

Glimpse of a Transition Cafe…

What is Privilege?  Who has it?  Who does not?  Is it solely economic, or are there other factors?  Is it inherently a bad thing, or can it be used for the benefit of all?  Is “using it for the benefit of all” just a rationalization of those who have it?  Is pointing to someone else’s Privilege, however you define it, a rationalization for inaction? Transition is often painted with that same “Privileged” brush.  Does that mean we are working to solve the problem, or that we are not?  Or both?

Many perspectives shared, and much food for thought!

Thanks to William Mutch who hosts the Transition Cafe and has done a masterful job selecting a different topic each week.
